[prMac.com] XChange International announce release of
OfficialReport XT 3.0 Universal Binary XTension for QuarkXPress 7
XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of OfficialReport v3 providing for Universal Binary support and QuarkXPress 7 compatibility. The XTension gives users the ability to build comprehensive and professional-looking document reports of QuarkXPress documents in just seconds. With the click of a button, users can obtain formatted listings of fonts, colour usage, style sheets, H&Js, picture fonts, picture colours, layout preferences and detailed picture usage. What’s more, the built-in batch feature can make reports for hundreds of documents automatically.
Reports created with OfficialReport are fully formatted QuarkXPress projects, with the information presented in a compact, to-the-point tabular layout. Users can choose the report name, the page size (letter, legal, A4, etc.), the units used for horizontal and vertical measures, whether to create single or facing pages, and an option to automatically add folios at the bottom of every page. Character and paragraph style sheets are added automatically, so global changes can be made quickly to customise the look and feel of the final report once it's created.
OfficialReport comes with a built-in batch report feature that can generate a thorough description for up to 2000 documents at a time. The batch report list allows users to add and remove documents with ease and there is also an option to include reports for all the layouts inside each document.
The OfficialReport window lets users choose from any of the following reporting categories:
- Colours – Colours defined in the project: spot, name, description, halftone
