Meadows Publishing Solutions

Founded in 1991, Meadows Publishing Solutions provides commercial and custom software development, integration, and consulting services for the print and electronic publishing markets. Their current areas of focus include Variable Data Printing, Database Publishing Automation, Text Editing Automation, and Digital Catalog Production. Their development team has created a new set of XTensions for QuarkXPress that will change the way you work with QuarkXPress forever! They call them the Grabbers, and each one uses an incredibly simple marquee method for selecting text. Forget about drag-selecting the old-fashioned way – just click one of the Grabber tools and grab the text you wish to change. To use a Grabber tool, select it from the QuarkXPress tool palette and drag a marquee around the page area you wish to modify. Release the mouse and the Grabber dialog box appears. Fill in the dialog, click OK, and like magic the Grabbers locate the text or tabs that have been selected in the marquee area and apply your changes.
