Markzware Offers Free Quark XTension

Plugin provides overflow control By Dave Nagel
Markzware has released another free XTension for QuarkXPress. The software, Overflow XT, provides control over text overflow in the page layout application. It's available now for Quark 3.x through 5.x for the Macintosh.

Overflow XT appears in a floating palette, accessed through Quark's Utilities menu. It offers four functions, in addition to general preferences:

  • It shows the page number of each text box that contains an overflow and the number of characters in the overflow.
  • A "fit text" option for adjusting the text box containing the overflow to fit all text.
  • A "show box" option to reveal text boxes containing overflow.
  • An "update list" option to update information about text overflow.
