Prevent Corrupted QuarkXPress 8 Documents With MarkzTools


SANTA ANA, California, April 6, 2009 — Markzware (, the leading developer of preflighting, data extraction and conversion software, today released an upgrade to its highly recommended utility, MarkzTools v8 for QuarkXPress 8. MarkzTools is an XTension that is used to prevent corrupted Quark (QuarkXPress) documents, along with several other useful features.

“MarkzTools is an easy-to-use Quark XTension that delivers outstanding results preserving intellectual property investment. This XTension enables QXP version conversion to save QuarkXPress files and reduce the costs of re-creating content. These benefits have a dramatic and positive impact on day-to-day productivity,” said Mary Gay Marchese, director of public relations, Markzware. Marchese continues, “MarkzTools is a time saver when you need to rescue a corrupted Quark document. It really is a no-brainer to have this in your conversion tools kit.”

MarkzTools allows you to automatically verify your saved Quark documents, so you will immediately know your file is safe. With MarkzTools’ special temp file, you can recover QuarkXPress text from corrupt QuarkXPress files during a save operation.

In the case of badly corrupted Quark files where page layout data cannot be salvaged, the Scavenge Text feature may be able to extract text stories from the damaged QXP document.

The Gray Previews feature allows you to convert your full color picture previews into gray-scale previews; greatly reducing the file size of your saved documents.

MarkzTools 8 can save QuarkXPress documents to Quark 6 or Quark 4. It can also enable Quark 8 to export Quark documents to those versions directly.

Markzware’s MarkzTools v8 is $199 (MSRP) and and the upgrade is $99 for MarkzTools v6 and v7.
