Quark tweaks QuarkXPress with 10.2 update

Quark has updated its XPress page layout program to v10.2. This now offers more control over the Xenon graphics engine with an option to balance between maximum performance and highest image display quality.

Other new features include Redlining, which can track changes within QuarkXPress documents so writers, editors and project managers can see what changes have been made. There’s also a Notes ability to store comments in a project without affecting the actual content of the project by adding reminders and comments on the text content.

Quark also claims that this version is ready for PDF/X-4 and passes all version 4 Ghent Workgroup Output Tests (http://www.gwg.org/download/test-suites/ghent-output-suite/), which is especially important for PDF/X-4 based workflows.

It’s a free update for anyone already using v10 and will also be part of Quark’s Creative Pro bundle of additional tools until the end of August.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
