JoLetter - JoLetter brings Mail Merge to QuarkXPress. Users enjoy automatic removal of empty lines and the ability to include multiple rows of data per page. Images are supported by JoLetter and users can assign a field to an image simply by selecting this image and double clicking the corresponding column name. To control this setting and aid visualisation the column name of the image is displayed in the top left corner of the image frame. This image name is not included in any output. And for conditional rules, since it is often necessary to insert text dependent on the data—especially for some European languages due to their grammar—there is a multi-line text edit field in the “JoLetter” palette. System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.9/4, Windows 2000/XP, QuarkXPress 6.5.
EuroPatch - EuroPatch enables easy typing of the Euro glyph from the Euro fonts of Adobe and Linotype. In addition EuroPatch fixes a bug within QuarkXPress 4.x for printing fonts with an embedded Euro glyph (especially on Windows). System Requirements: Mac OS 9.2 or Mac OS X 103.9/10.4, Windows 2000/XP, QuarkXPress 4.1 to 6.5.
FontMapper - The current fonts of most font companies now contain the Euro glyph. To distinguish them from older versions without the Euro glyph the menu and postscript name had to be changed. After replacing the older font versions with the new ones, there is a problem using the new font with all existing documents. When opening them there is a warning about missing fonts. FontMapper solves this problem. It is possible to replace all missing fonts with one click. At the moment there is built-in support for the complete Linotype font library. In addition, it is possible to add any other fonts to the replacement list. System Requirements: Mac OS 9.2 and Mac OS X 10.3.9/10.4, QuarkXPress 4.1 to 6.5.
RegMarkXT - RegMarkXT lets users have control of the printer’s marks in QuarkXPress. The XTension adds a dialogue for resizing the length of the trim marks and whether or not to include the Registration text slug. System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.9/10.4, Windows 2000/XP, QuarkXPress 6.5/7.
TypoX - TypoX adds a palette to QuarkXPress with feedback for the exact position of the text caret. In addition TypoX displays a modifiable versal height of the current font. System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.9/10.4, Windows 2000/XP, QuarkXPress 6.5/7.0.
JoUp - JoUp is imposition software for Adobe Acrobat 6 and 7. The advanced features include automatic spot colour bar, lining out for proofing, a Jobinfo frame, TrimBox Editor and hot folder support (JoUp Pro). Jobinfo is a placeholder for job information, which is filled when imposing the page. The frame can be positioned anywhere on the page and is filled with the following text objects: pagination (Sheet 1A/B, etc.), document name and colour names (CMYK + all used spot colours). With the JoUp tool active, users get thin black lines around the Trim Boxes of the placed pages for proofing. The colour of those lines can be replaced by a special spot colour, so that they can use the same print job for both proofing and printing. PDF documents should contain a TrimBox for each page for exactly placing them into the frames of a template. Although it is possible to add the TrimBox with Acrobat itself, the interface is not very easy to use, especially for rotated pages. Using JoUp users simply activate the JoUp tool—a dialogue lets users enter the exact values for the TrimBox. System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.9/10.4, Windows 2000 or XP, Adobe Acrobat 6 or 7 Professional, Output devices with PostScript® Level 3 capability.
EPSWizard - The EPSWizard offers transparent tiff preview for eps files. It lets users include a high quality, cross platform TIFF preview with an alpha channel for transparent areas and information about used colours and missing fonts. System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.3/10.4.
PDFWizard - The PDFWizard is a plug-in for analysing and editing PDF documents. Users can convert colours with ICC profiles from RGB <-> CMYK, control colour separation, control black overprint, convert to greyscale, convert spot colours and embed missing fonts. System Requirements: Mac OS 9.2 or Mac OS X 10.3.9 up to 10.4, Adobe Acrobat 5.05, 6 or 7.
