AthenaSoft’s LayerCraftXT is an XTension for QuarkXPress 8 and 9 that lets you import and export layers from a QuarkXPress layout. Art Directors and Graphic Designers can at an early stage of a project, for example, share a layer to a new document and allow translators to start their work.
When exporting layers, you can choose to export either one selected layer, or all the visible layers. The result is a new QuarkXPress layout containing only those layers. When importing layers, new layer items will be added to only the existing pages in the target layout — LayerCraftXT will not add or delete pages.
