September 25, 2009 in Publishing (F)

[] London, UK - XChange UK and ThePowerXChange, the sources for extended technology worldwide are pleased to announce the release of the award-winning Multi Style II XT for QuarkXPress 8. Multi Style is a must for everyone who works with tables, ad listings, catalogues, brochures, magazines, newspapers and other complex formatting activities. It allows users to swiftly copy and apply complex formatting. With Multi Style XT, once the typographic settings (multistyles) have been defined, they can be instantly copied and pasted onto unformatted text. Using Multi Style II, complex text formatting can be defined in a paragraph style and the formatting of a sequence of paragraphs can be copied onto another sequence of paragraphs.

Multi Style II's cexecution is very simple. Users format one paragraph or series of paragraphs the way they want, and then either copy and paste the formatting to other paragraphs or save the formatting as a style to be used over and over again. All formatting that users can apply to text will be included in the style definition: paragraph rules, drop caps, text colour, baseline shift, horizontal scaling, etc. This makes it very simple to alternate the formatting from paragraph to paragraph, and also makes it easy to reapply the formatting if a new paragraph is added or deleted.

A multistyle contains style attributes for one or more words or paragraphs. It is even possible to specify various formatting styles within words and/or paragraphs. The text styles can be applied across a single page onto unformatted text. Multi Style XT analyses the target text and applies the created multistyle based on (sub)field separators. In QuarkXPress 4.x or later it is possible to apply character stylesheets. This is a manual process in which users first need to select words or characters before applying a character style sheet. When using Multi Style II XT this is not necessary, so users save time and money instantly utilising the XTension.

Key features:
* Copy and apply typographic specifications
* Save complex formatting in multistyles
* Multistyles can be applied to a single word, a paragraph or multiple selected words and paragraphs
* Apply saved multistyles using the Multi Style XT palette or user-definable short cuts
