XChange International announce availabiity of FullMeasure XTfor QuarkXPress v7 and Universal Binary support (December 12, 2006)
DMN Newswire--2006-12-12--XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of FullMeasure XT v4 for QuarkXPress v7. FullMeasure XT is a powerful control palette that gives you instant access to more than 160 functions, attributes and tools right at your fingertips. The FullMeasure strip is organised into 12 panels that comprise text and paragraph formats, rule settings, picture information, item and frame settings, document preferences, table functions, guide management, item alignments, search tools and value conversions.
FullMeasure allows you to view and change dozens of attributes?no more travelling through menus, opening dialogues or squinting at screens cluttered with palettes. It can also be configured to be context-sensitive, meaning that its panels switch automatically to present only the information relevant to the current context. In addition, you get many tools otherwise unavailable in QuarkXPress, such as box reference points, functions for redefining style sheets, character and paragraph count, nudge controls, complete picture information, keyboard shortcuts and more.
New to FullMeasure 4.0 is the ability to search for item attributes, including box dimensions, background colour, shade and opacity, suppression status, offsets, text columns, frame style, picture format, resolution, colour model and status.
Unique FullMeasure Tools:
? Complete Picture Information and Linking Tools: picture name and full path, reveal picture/folder in Finder, open picture with creator or any application you choose, file size, colour model (RGB, CMYK, etc.), format (EPS, TIFF, etc.), picture compression, picture suppression, resolution and effective resolution, update picture, link status, embedded EPS fonts/colours.
