Awarded 5 stars by Publish magazine, QC was first to bring a new kind of Quality Control to QuarkXPress users. It's been greatly improved over the years to help you eliminate problems before they happen! Save most of the time that is wasted between production studios and proof reading by running a QC check. Besides all the standard checks on pictures such as effective resolution, RGB, missing fonts, etc. QC will catch many of the problems that a proof reader would normally flag like a space before a comma, misaligned boxes, text outside of live area (and many more). As a native XTension for QuarkXPress, QC quickly generates an interactive list of problems. Click on an item in the list, and QC transports you to that part of the document, where you'll find the problem highlighted.


– Super-handy QC Palette runs preset checks on items, pages or document
– Includes basic proofreading module which reduces errors
– Comprehensive list of text, picture, item, document and color checks.
– Trigger checks or reminders on events such as picture import or save.
