QX2018 – JavaScript (e.g. GREP)

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 28 Feb 2018, 20:27


Built-in modern JavaScript based on V8
Scriptability and extensibility have always been core values of QuarkXPress.

With QuarkXPress 2018 you can now write cross platform JavaScripts to automate repetitive tasks by accessing capabilities beyond the user interface.

For example, you - or anyone with basic Java Scripting and HTML programming skills (HTML DOM manipulation) - can create unique features by accessing application and file system level commands, further you can modify layout objects using document object model (DOM API).

Unlike the competition, QuarkXPress uses an up-to-date version of JavaScript (ECMAScript ES6+).
