Quark announces new 2015 version

Quark Software has shown off the next major version of its layout program, QuarkXPress 2015, which will be released in the first quarter of next year. It will use a new 64-bit architecture, which should see an immediate performance boost.

Quark has also added new document features including automatic footnotes and end notes, a faster table tool for Excel integration with table styles, and a text variables feature for automatically populating reoccurring fields – such as running headers.

Other tools include a dedicated Orthogonal Line Tool, larger page sizes, Format Painter and the ability to Relink Any Picture in the Usage Dialogue. It brings Tool Palette, Measurement Palette and Palette Group Docking to Windows. It also supports Apple’s new Yosemite OS X as well as 64-bit versions of Windows 8 but not 32-bit versions.

Matthias Guenther, director of the QuarkXPress business unit, says that the new version includes the top 10 most-requested enhancements, adding: “We always strive to ensure the new features we develop are the ones that will make a real difference to customers’ workflows.

The new version of QuarkXPress will continue to be sold as a perpetual license. In addition, starting from today, anyone buying or upgrading to QuarkXPress 10  before December 31, 2014 will receive a free upgrade to QuarkXPress 2015 when it is available. Existing customers will be able to pre-order it for £199. Hopefully Quark will release more details of the new software before these offers expire so watch this space for further news.
