New AutoCorrectXT for QuarkXPress 8 Includes Long-awaited Features

June 25, 2009 in Publishing (F)

[] London, UK - XChange UK and ThePowerXChange website, the sources for extended technology worldwide are pleased to announce AutoCorrectXT for QuarkXPress 8. Misspelled words are automatically flagged and underlined in red as users type in QuarkXPress 8 stories, similar to Microsoft Word. AutoCorrectXT also includes a feature to automatically correct user-defined typing errors and simplify the insertion of regularly used terms or phrases. AutoCorrectXT 2.0 may be used with any form of QuarkXPress 8 story even if they are shared or synchronised.

AutoCorrectXT 2.0 includes two key features for QuarkXPress 8 documents: AutoCorrect and AutoSpell. Users who frequently have to use their spell checker to know where and what they've misspelled as well as users who regularly enter complex, difficult to type special terms will find the AutoCorrect feature indispensable. AutoCorrect allows users to enter frequently used terms like people's names, locations, government offices, titles, etc. into the AutoCorrect database with a user-defined easy to remember shortcut. Then all that is required to use any of these terms is to type the shortcut and any time the shortcut is used, the full term will automatically be inserted as the user types.

The AutoCorrect feature can also be used to automatically fix a user's own regular typing mistakes by entering common transpositions and misspellings into the AutoCorrect database. Then whenever those erroneous terms are entered into a Quark text box, it automatically changes to what is specified in the AutoCorrect database. Users will instantly improve their typing speed avoiding common mistakes which normally required them to manually move the cursor to these errors for correction.

Using the AutoSpell module, users are able to see the misspelled words being underlined in the whole layout. If they encounter a legal word not in the dictionaries, they may simply ignore these. Users can also get the suggested spellings for the handy pop-up menu. The spelling suggestions are supported by a very handy mouse hover menu. Selecting a word from the hover menu replaces the misspelled word with the selected suggestion. AutoSpell provides a powerful combination of language-based Auto Spelling dictionaries, and customised support for correcting misspelled words according to need as a user types, enabling editors and typographers at every skill level to create lexically correct QuarkXPress 8 documents quickly.

AutoSpell's 9 language dictionaries support the following languages:
English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Norwegian
