Compatibility of XTensions

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.

Compatibility of XTensions

Post by Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 10 May 2017, 02:51

Hi all,

as you know, QuarkXPress 2015 and 2016 share the same XTensions interface (API). This means that most XTensions that support QuarkXPress 2015 will also run in QuarkXPress 2016.

It's different for QX2017:
In QuarkXPress 2017 the API changed slightly, as we added many features that required a change.
So all XTensions running in previous versions need to be made compatible by their vendors/creators.

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?
