Badia Software has updated FullMeasure XT, an XTension for QuarkXPress, to version 3.1, which adds support for QuarkXPress 6. It runs on Mac OS X and Windows.
FullMeasure XT is a control palette that gives you access to over 150 QuarkXPress functions, attributes and tools. The FullMeasure strip is organized into 11 panels that comprise text and paragraph attributes, rule settings, picture information, item and frame characteristics, common preferences, table functions, guide placement, item alignments, value conversions, tools and shortcuts.
FullMeasure lets you view and change dozens of attributes. And it can be configured to be context-sensitive; if so, its panels switch automatically to present only the information relevant to the current context. The picture panel, for example, switches to the text panel when text is selected in the document.
FullMeasure comes with built-in English, German and Spanish languages. Version 3.1adds the ability to view JPEG images in the picture panel, as well as QuarkXPress 6 support. It requires QuarkXPress or QuarkXPress Passport 6.x with Mac OS X 10.2.x. or Windows 2000/XP. A single-user license is US$79.99. Upgrades for registered users of version 3.0 is $19.99 and $39.99 for users of earlier versions.
