XTensions sites

Hundreds of commercial XTensions for QuarkXPress are available for both Mac and Windows; these XTensions handle a wide range of tasks that QuarkXPress cannot. Plenty of information about XTensions is available online, including these XTensions vendors: CoDesCo and The PowerXChange. Not only do these sites let you purchase XTensions online, but they offer downloadable demos, too. Several other retail sites for XTensions offer similar serivces, and most XTensions developers have websites of their own. To find information about other retailers or a particular XTensions developer, use your favorite search engine to perform a search for them.

Quark homepage

In addition to providing information about the entire Quark product line — QuarkXPress, Quark DesignPad, Quark Publishing Platform, and more — Quark offers demo versions of products; technical notes and access to technical support via e-mail; program updaters; and free Quark-developed XTensions, including updated versions of word-processing filters.

Quark forums

Exchange ideas and discuss solutions with other QuarkXPress users on the Quark forums. You can meet community experts, and you’ll also find employees of Quark Software, Inc., participating in discussions.
