Badia PrintPreview: a Free XTension to Preview Printing in QuarkXPress

Badia PrintPreview is an incredibly useful, free XTension for QuarkXPress 8 or 9 that displays a live print preview inside the Print dialog. The preview is updated in real time as you change the print settings, giving you immediate feedback as to the way those changes will affect the final output.

Most print parameters are shown, including spreads, print marks, manual or automatic tiling, page rotation, bleeds, page gap, flipping and negative printing. You can also manually tile a page simply by dragging the mouse over the preview.
