MarkIt - With MarkIt, users can make pages completely ready for press by giving them the ability to position press marks such as trim lines, registration targets, and colour and greyscale bars?simply by dragging them into a proxy of the active document. MarkIt enables the user to create custom registration styles that can be used in place of QuarkXPress's default settings and users can customise MarkIt with a logo, a new registration mark, or even a colour or greyscale bar created in any graphics program and saved as EPS files.

XPert Item Marks (part of their XPert Tools XTensions suite) - XPert ItemMarks provides convenient methods for making crop and registration marks for individual items and pages with QuarkXPress. XPert ItemMarks supports the multiple undo and redo feature in QuarkXPress and gives users the ability to control the placement of the crop, bleed, margin marks, guides, and dimension arrows. Users can easily determine the type and placement of the registration marks, including targets, colour bars, and text slugs as well as the layer where marks, guides, and arrows reside and can indicate a location on the page, and a location in relation to the selected item.
