Copy Attributes in QuarkXPress

XTensionBadia Software’s Duplica XT 3 ($70) is an XTension for QuarkXPress 7 that specializes in copying formats and items from one place to another.

It lets you copy and apply formats onto several boxes at once, including character formats, paragraph formats, or box attributes. It also provides seven clipboards from which to save and reuse formatting that you’ve copied.

You can copy text without copying its character formatting; you can copy rule attributes and tab settings; you can position a box exactly in relation to the baseline of text in another box (great for captions!); copy and paste box positions from one page to another; and copy and paste guides between pages.

You can paste items BEHIND other items instead of in front, and Group them as you paste them. It even works between documents.

You can use it from a palette, a contextual menu, or use keyboard shortcuts. Earlier versions ($50) support QuarkXPress 4, 5 or 6.
