SANTA ANA, California, April 6, 2009 — Markzware, the leading developer of patented preflighting technology, data extraction and conversion software today released an upgrade to its highly recommended utility, MarkzTools v8 for QuarkXPress 8. MarkzTools is a Quark XTension that is used to prevent corrupted QuarkXPress documents, along with several other useful features.
“MarkzTools is an easy-to-use XTension that delivers outstanding results preserving intellectual property investment, by enabling easy version conversion, salvaging corrupt QuarkXPress files and reducing costs 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 the need arises and you need to rescue a corrupted QXP document. It really is a no-brainer to have this in your tool kit.”
MarkzTools allows you to automatically verify your saved Quark documents, so you will immediately know your file is safe. Furthermore, with MarkzTools special temp file, you can more easily recover QuarkXPress documents that have become corrupted during a save operation.
In the case of a badly corrupted QuarkXPress file where the page layout data cannot be salvaged, MarkzTools’ Scavenge Text feature may be able to extract text stories from the damaged document to recover QuarkXPress.
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 when you recover QuarkXPress.
MarkzTools 8 can save QuarkXPress documents to Quark 6 or Quark 4. It can also enable Quark 8 to export open documents to those versions directly.
