Vision’s Edge’s Resize XT is an XTension for QuarkXPress 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 that lets you scale objects or groups of objects, either by dragging them to a new size, or by entering scaling percentages or the intended final size.
It gives you control over horizontal and/or vertical scaling, and whether or not individual features such as line width, tabs, and text inset are to be scaled.
Because of its option to scale non-proportionally, Resize XT can be used for fixing ads that “don’t quite fit”, as well as for flexographic printing.
Resize XT costs $99.
