Quark users in the UK and Ireland have an opportunity to take advantage of a special offer from XChange International: through March 31 you can get a free copy of Enfocus’ Instant PDF 08 when you upgrade or purchase a new copy of QuarkXPress 8.
Using Instant PDF couldn’t be simpler — you simply select “Save as Certified PDF…” from the File menu in QuarkXPress. Instant PDF will then take care of creating your PDF, preflighting it, modifying it where necessary, and even sending it to your print provider. It’s the easiest and most foolproof way to ensure that your PDF files will comply with your print or advertisement vendors’ specifications.
The upgrade to QuarkXPress 8 costs just £279 and is available here.
