Many users were affected by our recent Activations database failure and we are taking steps to ensure this cannot happen again. Part of these changes will mean that older versions of both Blacklining for QuarkXPress and Blacklining for InDesign will not only no longer be supported but will actually cease to operate in the new secure enviroment. We will publish a date of changeover and of the Blacklining versions that will need to be updated nearer the time and there will be an overlap of some months of both activation systems to provide a smooth transition. As a guide it is expected that the changes will begin in June and please be aware that it is likely that any versions prior to 2019 will continue to operate after the overlap period has expired.

Blacklining for QuarkXPress & InDesign

Blacklining works with QuarkXPress or InDesign to allow a user to retain a complete revision history of all changes made to text. Those who work with financial, legal, medical and other exact documentation will find this an essential tool.

Blacklining is approved for use in new listing and other documentation submitted to many of the world’s stock exchanges including the London, New York, as well as for filings and submissions to the regulatory bodies.

Net Change and Compare Blacklining

The QuarkXPress version of Blacklining has an optionally available a Net Change or Compare View feature in strike view to show only the differences between specific revision cycles from first draft to the final version or any cumulative revisions. This provides a unique feature of tracking different revision cycles, showing a complete history of all the text changes made to a document as it passes through the revision process as well as a beginning to end comparison.
