DATAformXT is a versatile database tool for QuarkXPress 5, 6, 7 or 8. It interprets data from your database file to either build new XPress documents, or push information into existing XPress documents. Data from the XPress document can be exported back to the database as well.
Document properties, text box position and properties, picture paths, scaling properties and more can all be used in the a database, to easily generate catalogs and other structured documents on the fly. The resulting QuarkXPress documents can be edited just like any other.
