ProPack 9 for Mac contains 14** professional grade XTensions that you will find extremely useful, downright powerful and fun to use. ProPack 9 for Mac* contains the following items:

The world’s best scaler! Scales items, groups, pages, documents, text, pictures and even drop shadows. Scale nonproportionally without distorting text and graphics.
A document cropping tool which allows you to create professional layout mechanicals with crop and fold marks, dimension arrows, guides and more!
Advanced, easy-to-use Quality Control while you work on documents. QC checks for common punctuation errors, covered items, and much more in an intuitive interface.
Create text box effects from echoes and reflections to tiled and cloud effects. All text remains live so if you update one box, all boxes are updated automatically.
Get colors from placed pictures and create instant harmonized color palettes or copy box attributes between boxes. Much needed eyedropper tool added to Quark’s tool palette.
Generate accurate, comprehensive reports on all aspects of a document including picture reports with thumbnails, fonts, style sheets and more.
Switch all/any color to process or spot and find color usage instances
Greatly expands your formatting choices for creating tables, styling them and fitting them to particular specs.
Flip sets of objects that have been prepared for a left-facing page so that they work on a right-facing page, without losing the integrity of the design. Flipster is useful for facing pages workflows or those that need to prepare Middle Eastern versions of documents from English versions.
Set up advanced design grids and manipulate guides in useful ways. For example, you can double-click a guide to edit its position or locking. You can also control: Bleed Guides, Mirroring, Shifting, and Copy/Paste features for guides.
Control column spans of selected text. You can span multiple columns, break one column into sub-columns or convert multi-column boxes into multiple linked boxes.
Toggle live copy from readable text to unreadable Greeking in printouts while maintaining all paragraph formatting. Fantastic for ad designers who want to keep the client’s mind on the design and not the copy.
Manage and create layers based on box types, allowing you to move all text boxes to one layer and picture boxes to another as well as use other “layer tricks.”
Zoom, navigate and create uncluttered previews of pages or spreads all from easy-to-use palette.

* Windows ProPack and Earlier Mac ProPacks contain different sets of tools.

** QC Collect, Outlines, ShapeMaker, Linkster, Cloner and ImageGrid discontinued due to "feature absorbtion" in XPress. However, we will be adding some cool new tools to make up for it in the to ProPack owners.

We are so glad you have finished the updates on your programs to work with Quark 6. Upgrading to OS X and Quark 6 has not been an option for us until we had our GLUON XTensions for Quark 6. Quark is just not usable for us any more without ProPack, Docuslim, and XPressImage. We produce ads and magazines and your programs have made our jobs so much easier that we think your XTensions were written just for us. We look forward to being able to move ahead with OS X and Quark 6 now that we have upgraded our GLUON XTensions. Thank you again for creating such a wonderful suite of products that help so many users like us. We plan on using your products for many years to come and are looking forward to anything new you are planning in the future.
