SANTA ANA, California -- February 6, 2003 -- Today, Markzware announces the release of MarkzTools 5. MarkzTools is an XTension that can be used to prevent corrupted QuarkXPress documents, overcoming the dreaded "bad file format , , and ."
MarkzTools 5 is a prevention tool that helps to eliminate file corruption while saving. You can verify your saved documents, so you will immediately know when the integrity of your file is suspect. Furthermore, you can save a temporary copy of your document before saving the original document, so that in the event something goes wrong during the "save" process, you will still have temporary file availability for recovery.
In the case of a badly corrupted file in which the page layout data cannot be salvaged, the "scavenge text" feature may extract text stories from a document file.
MarkzTools 5 alerts you whenever you're about to save a lower version document to a higher version. It also makes QuarkXPress backwards compatible, allowing you to open higher version documents.
The "gray previews" feature will allow you to convert your full color picture previews into gray pictures, greatly reducing the file size on your hard drive.
MarkzTool 5 supports QuarkXPress 4.1 to 5.x and the languages supported are English, French and German.
The MSRP of MarkzTools 5 is $199. There is an upgrade from MarkzTools III available for $99.
