MPS CopyFit Desktop ($225) is an XTension for QuarkXPress 4.11 through 6.5 that finds and fixes overset and underset text boxes, according to a set of user-defined copy fitting rules for adjusting point size, scaling, leading, etc.
CopyFit settings can be saved as presets, and each box in a QuarkXPress layout can be assigned a different CopyFit setting.
CopyFit can be applied to all boxes at once or just one box at a time. CopyFit can also check for overset conditions during Save, Print, or Save as EPS operations.
