Gluon’s Texterous is an XTension for QuarkXPress 9 that lets you create special effects with text. Remarkably, when you change the text in one place, it changes in all the items created by Texterous. (It uses Quark’s Shared Content feature for this.)
Effects include Echo, Reflect, tiling, text clouds, and more. Gluon’s website shows examples of each effect.
Texterous is available as part of Gluon’s $219 ProPack 9, which also includes 11 additional XTensions that dramatically increase your productivity.
Gluon has versions of ProPack for QuarkXPress 7, 8 and 9. Read our earlier story about ProPack 8 here: “Gluon ProPack 8: The most valuable set of XTensions you can buy“.
