This XTension for QuarkXPress 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 creates crop and registration marks, as well as color and gray bars, around any selected object or group on the QuarkXPress document page in one easy step. Crops XT is the perfect way to place more than one job on a page when you’re doing small print jobs like business cards.
You choose what kinds of crop and registration marks you want to appear. Crops XT lets you decide which marks you need and allows you to adjust their sizes and offsets accordingly. Then all you do is select the object or objects you want surrounded by crops and execute a single menu command, and the crop marks are automatically placed on the page.
Crops XT costs $49; upgrades cost $15.
