What customers say:
"QuarkXPress is an essential layout tool, and frankly the best layout app for any graphic designer. With its intuitive tools and “box’ approach to page layout, it's surprisingly easy to add content and elements to a document, and then arrange and output them into a compelling and dynamic presentation."

"Simply put, this latest version of Quark is the powerful culmination of many years of development, industry-standard publishing, and a responsive, state-of-the-art piece of software that has adapted and improved to changing technologies, and the evolving needs of designers and publishers."
Turn your ideas into reality with QuarkXPress. It’s the graphic design software that gives you precise control over text, images, shapes, color, opacity, and it’s compatible with a broad range of file formats. No design is too simple or too complex — and no page layout software gives you more control.

It provides Bézier editing so you can remain in one application for page layout with high-end typography and vector drawing. With the non-destructive image editing capabilities, you can even manipulate images within the context of your design, without having to constantly switch to other image editing software.

Design, Layout, and Professional Print Output
Great design, of course, is only half of the equation. The other half is output; the final printed piece must match what’s on the screen. This is ensured in QuarkXPress with print previews, soft proofing features, comprehensive color management, and support for international color standards.

Digital Design & Publishing
With QuarkXPress print designers are right at home and ready to go with their digital publishing projects. You can easily convert content from print to digital formats.

This version of QuarkXPress 2018 Pro does NOT contain the feature to export as Kindle (export as Android app, iOS app, ePub and HTML5 Publication are of course possible). Of course you can convert the exported ePub file yourself into Kindle using KindleGen (free download from amazon).

PDF/x 3-2002 Format

Software does not support PDF/x 3-2002 format. I have PDF with PGB images to publish on Lightening Source.

Still great after all these years

I've used Quark since 1989...version 2.1, so iI've been a user for 30 years! However, one problem that has come up for me is in making press-quality PDFs for printing, some images (mostly .tif files and a few ads saved as PDFs) are coming up blurry, even tho the original photos and PDFs are razor sharp. I had a printer in FL show me that, and yes, I guess I've been so used to not hving any problems with Quark for years, I've gotten lazy and not looking as closely at the press-quality PDFs as I should have. So, if you're listening, Quark, please address this issue. I've even gone back to an earlier version to compare, and the older version (9.1) gets it right every time...where an image in Quark 2018 Pro is blurry in a press-quality PDF, importing the same file into an older version gives me perfect results! You get 4 stars until that is fixed.

Great to hear that you like QuarkXPress.

We are not aware of QuarkXPress outputting blurred PDF, unless you have used a compression in the PDF settings. Can you please contact with an example? If that's a bug in QuarkXPress, then of course we want to fix that. Thank you!

Watch Out In Design!

I've been a happy Quark Xpress user since version 3.0, but this new version (18) is knocking my socks off. I love the sleek new interface, with descriptive font listing. I am working on various customers' work at the same time, so need to keep lots of fonts open. What a lifesaver to scroll the list visually now. And the new opentype features are very helpful. Also, so happy to be able to open up those pesky InDesign files in Quark and edit comfortably. Can't wait to get some color fonts and try those out! I am mainly a print designer, so I haven't yet delved into the digital publishing abilities, but I'm sure they are as useful as those for print. Overall, would recommend Quark Xpress to any desktop publisher looking for an intuitive, sleek and powerful application.
