AthenaSoft® AutoCorrectXT® for QuarkXPress is the professional choice for typographers when it comes to "as-you-type" spell checking and AutoCorrections in QuarkXPress documents. It provides a powerful combination of language based Auto Spelling dictionaries, and customized support for correcting misspelled words according to need as you type, enabling editors and typographers at every skill level to create lexically right QuarkXPress documents quickly. AutoCorrectXT provides the tools professionals need in an integrated, streamlined environment. AutoCorrectXT can be used with any form of QuarkXPress story be it shared or synchronized. AutoCorrectXT has two flavors now. One with the Arabic Spell Checking Support in addition to the nine languages and the other without it. Arabic Spell Checking incorporates infix and ignores diacritic rules. AutoCorrectXT now comes with a new feature of 'On Demand' Spell Checking for an XPress story. A user can spell check the entire story with just a click in the Utilities Menu.

Features

AutoSpell

spellDo you frequently have to use your spell checker to know where and what you misspelled? Do you get irritated by the special words you use that get caught as misspelled? The solution to both of these annoyances is to be able to see the misspelled words being underlined in the whole layout by AutoCorrectXT.AOptions

Mark your misspelled words as you type. The words are underlined in red as soon as you misspell them similar to what Microsoft Word™ does. The appropriate language dictionary gets activated as soon as you change the text language.

Spelling suggestions are easily accessible through a floating menu that can be invoked by just a mouse over the marked words.
You can also add words to the user dictionary. These words are ignored while spellchecking. The words are added as belonging to the currently used language. These words are persisted in your local preferences so that they can be used across sessions. The words in the custom dictionary can be added or removed from the "Edit custom Dictionaries" dialog.EditDict

Currently AutoSpell feature supports the following language dictionaries:

  • US English
  • UK English
  • French
  • German (Including Reformed German and Swiss German)
  • Dutch
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Norwegian

AutoCorrect

Do you frequently have to enter the same long names, over and over, in your layouts? People’s names, places, government offices, titles, things like that?

autoCorrect
Does your typing speed get hindered due to common and frequent typing mistakes you do and to correct them manually by moving the caret to and fro?


The solution to both of these annoyances is to take a second and add each long name to AutoCorrectXT replacement list. This feature also provides a pre-compiled replacement list of common typing mistakes that people usually make, same as those provided by Microsoft Word™.ACOptions
 These replacements take place as soon as you make a mistake. You can very easily turn on or off this feature from the preferences.

The AutoCorrect also comes with a handy floating menu showing the options that you need to select. Just hover over the auto corrected word and you can see a button for the context menu. Clicking on the button reveals the context menu where you might manage options for that particular word in the database.

 
AutoFormat

Auto apply numbering as you type characters matching numbering formats, just like MS Word. AutoCorrectXT supports all the pre-built numbering formats that are shipped with QuarkXPress. The user can also apply bullets by typing '*' character at the start of a new paragraph.

AutoFormat also supports bullet/numbering style removal on pressing the delete key at the start of a paragraph, similar to what MS Word does. No more going to the styles tab to remove bullets/numbering.

AutoFormat is available only for QuarkXPress version 9.x and above.
