Quark Bundles 14 XTensions for Free with QuarkXPress 9

Gluon ProPack 9 gift with every purchased copy of QuarkXPress 9 until end of June

Denver, CO - 5/31/2012 -

Quark announced today that anyone purchasing or upgrading to QuarkXPress® 9 between 31st May and 30th June 2012 will receive Gluon’s newest ProPack™ 9, worth £143/€170, free of charge. Gluon’s ProPack 9 contains 14 Mac XTensions (9 Windows XTensions) and adds features, functionality and value to QuarkXPress by automating and eliminating repetitive steps. 

The offer is valid for anyone purchasing a copy of QuarkXPress, including education, non-profit and government organisations. All QuarkXPress existing customers, including those using versions of QuarkXPress dating back to version 3, can upgrade to QuarkXPress 9 for £299/€449. 

“Quark has a track record of giving its customers feature-rich updates to its software at no extra cost, such as the new Kindle export features in QuarkXPress 9.3 that we just released today. With QuarkXPress 9 creative professionals can really make the most of their creativity with print and digital features, as well as automated design capabilities. Now with the gift of Gluon’s Pro Pack, designers can boost their productivity even further and get even more value for their money, all the more if they have an old copy of QuarkXPress and wish to catch-up with the current version” said Gavin Drake, Vice President of Marketing for Quark.

Gluon’s ProPack includes:
  • ColuMaker™: Control column spans of selected text. You can span multiple columns, break one column into sub-columns or convert multi-column boxes into multiple linked boxes.
  • iDropper™: Get colours from placed pictures and create instant harmonised colour palettes or copy box attributes between boxes with a new eyedropper tool added to Quark’s tool palette
  • Greeker: Toggle live copy from readable text to unreadable Greeking in printouts while maintaining all paragraph formatting. Fantastic for ad designers who want to keep the client’s mind on the design and not the copy
