FontAgent’s XTension plugin for QuarkXPress 2017 activates fonts automatically as you open documents in the professional graphic design and page layout application.

Auto-Activate Fonts in QuarkXPress 2017

FontAgent 7 and 8 include a QuarkXPress 2017 XTension plugin that automatically activates fonts in Quark documents as you open them in the popular graphic design and page layout application. The plugin is available in FontAgent for Mac 7.3 and later, and can be downloaded from the Insider online store.

FontAgent Speeds Your Quark Workflow

As you open documents in QuarkXPress 2017, the new FontAgent Xtension automatically:

  • Identifies fonts that closely match fonts in your document
  • Determines which your fonts closely match the required fonts
  • Previews and activates the fonts you want

Here are some highlights of new features previewing in QuarkXPress 2017.

Image Management

Quark’s new release allows you to stay in QuarkXPress while you fine-tune your images—rather than jumping in and out of image-editing apps. New image-handling features include non-destructive image adjustments and filters, a format painter that quickly copies attributes from another item, transparency for blending multiple images into one, new shape tools, and multi-color gradient enhancements.

Typography and Text

Quark has long offered powerful typographic tools and their new 2017 release adds recent-font lists, text outlining and shading, column spanning and splitting, non-breaking text attributes, merged text boxes, lines between columns, proportional leading, smart-quote preferences, and a number of other new features.

Digital Publishing

QuarkXPress produces HTML5 publications for pixel-perfect display in desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile browsers. The new 2017 release enables you to add interactive features including scrollable areas, slide shows and animations. And you can now also create interactive experiences that you can distribute as Apple iOS applications.

New UI and Requested Features

Quark has also added new features to its 2017 release specifically to address customer requests. Those enhancements include conversion of externally developed content into native QuarkXPress objects, layout auto-adjustment as you convert between page sizes, new UI color themes, adjustable UI palettes, anchored cross-references, cache clearing and other improvements.

QuarkXPress is used by hundreds of thousands of users worldwide for the design ad layout of print and digital projects. FontAgent’s seamless integration with QuarkXPress give those users the power to catalog, verify, preview, manage and activate fonts in their creative workflow.
