"It'll be great once they get it working"

What do you like best?

I like the automation features such as master pages and content variables. Edit once, update everywhere.

What do you dislike?

Crash, crash, crash. When I pay $800 for software in 2018, I expect it to run. Quark doesn't. Simple operations like pressing Ctrl+Z or switching focus to another program frequently trigger crashes. This is all on a modern PC purchased in the last year which runs InDesign just fine. The user interface has odd behavior when switching between desktop programs, and the interface flashes as you move things around. A simple page with maybe 30 elements on in will scroll slowly, while InDesign scrolls smooth on the same conditions. No simple way to send Quark feedback (hence me coming to this random review site to give my feedback.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you decide to go this way, back up all your stuff. Skim the guide on their web site to make sure you catch all the cool features. Quark's flashing interface and constant crashing will make you pull your hair out, so consider working with a friend by your side so you don't feel like you're losing your mind..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating technical user manuals for food processing equipment. Automatic section and subsection titles at the top of the page are easy to create. Powerful tools for paragraph style sheets let us achieve a manual that looks up to par with industry standards.

"QuarkXpress is still King of the layout software options"

What do you like best?

Typography has always been easier to control in Quarkxpress. Also being able to import pdfs and vectors and editing them within Quark is a massive timesaver. I find I'm not jumping back and forth from Quark to Illustrator since the introduction of editing vectors within Quark, it's a massive timesaver. I generally find it more intuitive than Indesign (I also have to use Indesign as some of our bigger clients insist) and it's all round general performance is better and faster than Indesign. I personally wouldn't use anything else if I wasn't made to.

What do you dislike?

The updater kicking you out of whatever app you are working in. The lack of background outputting/printing. I think that tables could still be improved and setting application default preferences has taken a big step backward for objects and type boxes although I can see why they have done what they have. Just need to be able to set runaround preferences in the default preferences pane. These are all small niggles though and general performance is greatly improved over previous versions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We personally find it speeds up our workflow compared to doing the same jobs in Indesign. We design all of our clients printed material in QuarkXpress unless told otherwise. We're are currently learning the digital side of Quarkxpress.

"Still using for legacy files"

What do you like best?

Its familiar for me. short cuts are embeded in my flow, so its tough to switch to InDesign. They basically do the same things as a solo designer.

What do you dislike?

Used it since its inception, but do to cost of the software and constant updates requiring new purchases, much more cost effective to use Adobe.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most of the world is using InDesign these days, so if you work with outside sources for files or are required to edit others work, you might want to consider the alternative.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quarkexpress lets me design and layout print advertising for all sorts of media.

"Discovering Quark Xpress 2018"

What do you like best?

Discovering Quark Xpress 2018 has been like opening a beautiful Pandora’s Box of hidden treasures. Transformative and revelatory in equal measure. Thank you Quark.

Kind regards, Mike Lethby

What do you dislike?

The (now long forgotten) years of Quark losing its former No 1 position to competitors. But now it's back, it's beautiful and it's intuitively refreshing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Forget the old clichés about Quark being slow at responding to design trends. It may have been true once, but the company shows a refreshing attitude these days that is re-orienting its market leadership.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A seamless integration of multi-platform media, with the power of content automation, that allows much more advanced and logical solutions to a host of design problems. The benefits come in terms of time saved, and thoughts focused, for everyone on a team with responsibility for the productivity and effectiveness of the chosen route/s of communication.

There's a Reason it's the Industry Standard

Pros: The flexibility to do what I need, quality pixel perfect output

Cons: Very small learning curve (I came from using InDesign)

Overall: My output doubled with QuarkXPress. Easy to navigate, allowed me to be more creative without having to worry about USING the tool. I just did, and let the creativity flow.

My Go to Print Layout Choice For Years

Pros: Since I first used this software in college (which was more than a while ago) although it has changed and evolved in my opinion it has never stopped being the best layout creation tool there is. I've used it over the years professionally across all kinds of projects and niches and even personally to create materials for the kids' soccer teams etc. And customer service always has been truly top notch, something that is increasingly rare these days.

Cons: The newer Adobe integrations can be annoying and for my purposes not that helpful. Yes, there are days when I wish it had never happened but not to the point that I will actively go looking for something else as an alternative.

Overall: I've been using Quark for so long now that I find it hard to imagine using anything else. At a client's encouragement - and because they owned the software - I did try Scribus but for me it just did not have the same feel or great function that Quark has so after a few hours experimentation I politley delined to keep using it and went back to what I know (and achived excatly what they were looking for anyway)

Cons: I found it difficult to navigate the interface.

Professional software

Pros: The best part of the QuarkXPress is the variety of different functions that will allow user to work on either small of big scale publishing project. I used it for 4 page marketing booklets and over hundred pages product catalogues. Love it.

Cons: You have to wait before it will run, the software is huge.
