ALAP releases XPert Align 2.1, XPert Layers 2.1, and XPert Scale 2.1

Press release from the issuing company

Carlsbad, CA - November 12, 2003 - A Lowly Apprentice Production, Inc. (ALAP), today announced the release of three major upgrades XPert Align 2.1, XPert Layers 2.1 and XPert Scale 2.1. The new versions add support for QuarkXPress 6.0 Mac OS X and Windows XP while maintaining compatibility with the older QuarkXPress versions 4 and 5. Additionally all three products take advantage of QuarkXPress 6.0's new multiple undo/redo feature. XPert Align 2.1 provides an intuitive, visual method for aligning items with other items or the page. Simply select the items to align, then click a button to automatically align the items with each other, center them on the page, place them equidistant across the page. XPert Align eliminates having to work with guides and measurement just to align QuarkXPress items. XPert Layers 2.1 helps users juggle layered items that comprise many design elements by offering an easy method for locating, selecting, and modifying layered items on pages. The layering of items in QuarkXPress provides many design opportunities, but it also presents many challenges when it comes to selecting and modifying items. That’s where XPert Layers comes in — you store items on specific layers, show the layers you want to work on, and modify the items independent of items on other layers. XPert Scale 2.1 lets you quickly scale QuarkXPress documents, items, groups, and contents similar to the way drawing programs scale objects. Through preferences, you specify what gets scaled — text, frames, offsets, line weights, and more. You can scale items visually or numerically (by entering percent values or dimensions). With both its precision and interactive scaling methods, XPert Scale can simplify headline creation, logo development, copy fitting, picture and caption adjustments, and many other common tasks. System Requirements and Pricing XPert Align, XPert Layers and XPert Scale are all priced at $99.99 USD each and are currently available for Macintosh System 8.6 or later, or Microsoft Windows 98 or later. The XTensions require QuarkXPress 4.1 or later. Upgrades from versions 2.0 to 2.1 are priced at $29.99. Upgrades from versions 1.0 to 2.1 are priced at $49.99.
