My copy of QuarkXPress 8 arrived late last week, and I enjoyed the packaging. So… I thought I’d share it with you.
Here’s the outside box:
The “8” you see is showing through a cutout in the outer box, and is actually on the installation DVD.
But there’s an inner box that slips into the top of the outer box as well:
And inside that is a sleeve with the DVD and a promotional piece that points to several additional sources of information and support for QuarkXPress.
And that’s all. There’s no manual, no QuickStart guide, and no training videos. However, the DVD includes a substantial User Guide in PDF format, complete with a hyperlinked Table of Contents, and a 16-page “What’s New in QuarkXPress 8” new feature overview.
I also understand that Quark is planning on posting training videos on their website. We’ll let you know when those arrive.
Jay Nelson is the editorial director of PlanetQuark.com, and the editor and publisher of Design Tools Monthly. He’s also the author of the QuarkXPress 8 and QuarkXPress 7 training titles at Lynda.com, as well as the training videos Quark includes in the box with QuarkXPress 7 . In addition, Jay writes regularly for Macworld and Photoshop User magazines and speaks at industry events.
