Print Just a Selection in QuarkXPress 8.1

There’s a new, free XTension at  the “Quark Labs” section of Quark’s website: Print Selection XT.

This useful (dare I say necessary?) XTension lets users of QuarkXPress 8.1 output just a selection of a page, rather than the entire page. The selection can be made either by selecting specific items on a page, or by using the new Print Selection tool to drag a marquee around an area of a page.

The selection can then be output to either a printer, an EPS file, or a PDF file. And the selection can be applied to the current page, or any range of pages in the document.

This new tool is terrific for proofing just some text, or just a picture (or three) on a page.
