QuarkXPress 8 full version

Once on the page, the Item tool looks like an arrow can be used to scale, rotate and modify the contents. How about fun? Yes, QX8 is fun. Much like InDesign is fun. And that symbolizes the significant change in this version of XPress. Illustrator users will appreciate this. When I was trying to figure out how to modify an item, I could right-click on it to find many options available without searching through menus.

Much like InDesign, QX8 allows users to move to Photoshop to edit an original graphic or photo with the click of a button. Has version 8 changed the way I look at QuarkXPress? It looks like Quark has produced a worthy competitor in the pagination marketplace. I like what I see. Only time will tell. But it seems, for the present, Quark has leveled the playing field.

Design grids can be assigned to pages and boxes to allow unlimited baseline grids. Hanging characters can be applied and customized by character and amount to hang outside the box. This is the first version to include built-in Adobe Flash authoring. Designers can create Flash content including sound, video, animation and interactivity without programming. With App Studio, which is shipped with QuarkXPress, designers can even create and design their own apps.

It also included a new, modern graphics engine, Xenon. QuarkXPress was the first version to use a different naming scheme. Quark claimed to have added the top 10 of all user-requested features. The release also includes revamped digital capabilities including being able to create HTML5 Publications. Top user requested features include multi-gradient blends and a color picker tool.

QuarkXPress continued the new naming scheme and established an annual release cycle. The headline features include non-destructive image editing, various typography enhancements such as text stroking and text shading, responsive HTML5, and unlimited iOS apps for no additional cost outside of the Apple Developer fees. Other user-requested features included adaptive layout conversion for print, smart quotes, and proportional leading.

On March 1, , Quark announced QuarkXPress , [11] stating it would be available on May 16, , continuing its now familiar annual release cycle. The headline features in version include new OpenType controls, hyphenation strictness, support for color fonts, IDML import to convert Adobe InDesign documents to QuarkXPress and the ability to create unlimited Android apps for no additional cost outside of the Google Play fees. Renamed in to "QuarkXPress Server", [13] the product is now primarily sold with Quark Publishing Platform — the central hub of the company's content automation solutions.

QuarkXPress Server is a Java application that takes content components text, images, video, data, charts, etc. As the content is assembled into templates using granular content components, the output can be highly customized for different audiences in terms of the content and the brand. The system relies on XML. No knowledge of timelines or ActionScript is necessary for this purpose. The same is true of the new ability to quickly rotate boxes simply by dragging on a corner which will encourage designers to break out from predictable grid-like layouts.

Another tool that has been seriously reworked is QuarkXPress 8's Pen tool. Other flyout tools let you add, delete and convert control points, but it seems odd at first that there are no shape tools. In fact this apparent shortcoming proves a strength as you can quickly convert any text glyph to an editable box.

And now you can convert multiple lines, entire stories and even entire spreads while fully maintaining the appearance of the text during conversion. The hands-on drawing power that QuarkXPress 8 offers is impressive and adds another dimension to design work but it can't compete with the dedicated vector handling of market-leading Adobe Illustrator. Quark's solution is to add direct support for Illustrator's native AI files. Page 1 of 3 QuarkXPress 8 review.
