XTensions (plug-ins) in QuarkXPress 2019

Discuss third-party XTensions® software for QuarkXPress 2017, QuarkXPress 2018 and QuarkXPress 2019.
As the API hasn't changed between 2017 & 2018 & 2019 versions, most XTension running in QuarkXPress 2017 should also work in QuarkXPress 2018. If not, the XTension might have a hard-coded version check. Please contact the vendor of the XTension for compatibility information.

XTensions (plug-ins) in QuarkXPress 2019

Post by Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 08 May 2019, 04:00

Hi all,

currently we are 99.99% certain that the QuarkXPress 2019 XDK (QuarkXPress interface for XTensions) will stay compatible with QuarkXPress 2018.

So that means that most XTension that run in QX2018 will also run in QX2019.

Two exceptions:
  • The XTension makes use of a feature that is fundamentally different in 2019. Tables come to mind.
    More likely, the XTension developer hard coded a version check into the XTension. Then they need to recompile the XT, please contact the XT vendor for compatibility information.
Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?
