SAXoPaletteXT is an XTension adding new facilities to the Quark-XPress application (Copy-fitting, Text indents, Paste with styles, uphold baseline grid), but further it offers automatic make up of articles and images on QuarkXPress templates.
SAXoPaletteXT can be used by the sub-editor to paginate his own pages on-
screen as well as by staff receiving articles and images from other users for pagination on specific QuarkXPress pages.
SAXoPaletteXT appears as a palette in QuarkXPress. The palette provides a list and preview of the articles and images attached to the page. Full-page electronic pagination is performed by the user selecting an article in the palette and through the use of Drag & Drop pulls it out on the page.
Here the user drops the article on the place on the page, where the article is to be placed. SAXoPalletteXT will then place the article as a block with the selected headline size and the selected number of columns. SAXoPaletteXT automatically copyfits the articles boxes to the text and makes sure that the space between the headline box and the bodytext box is correct. The article is thus given the correct appearance - both in typography and geometry. In the same way you can place a selected image including the capture with the Drag & Drop technique - with a cutline attached. Using the SAXoComposerXT to place the text and pictures from each other in you articles you can even drag the article and pictures onto the page as one element.
After the pagination procedure the article or image changes its status in the palette in order for the user to be kept up to date as to which elements are placed on the page and which elements still remain to be placed.
When an article or an image has been placed the change of status is registeredthrough out the whole of the SAXoPRESS allowing other users to have an overview of which elements are already placed on the page.
Last SAXoPaletteXT also has a browsing feature enabling the user to look through articles and images in the palette before they are paginated.
SAXoPaletteXT has a format-menu, which is extremely effective when you wish to change the articles or picture´s format. You simply select the article - for example a 3 column, 36 point headline - and select the desired new number of columns and head-line size in the format menu - for example a 5 column, 48 point headline with a box. SAXoPaletteXT instantly reformats the article. A feature which saves many mouseclicks and speeds up the make up process considerably, while at the same time upholding the rules of typography.
Now, it is also possible to select a number of articles and place them in one single move on the Quark-XPress Page as a stripe. Best of all you can easy decide the order, the space between the elements and if they should be in a box.
