“Details matter more than ever for today’s designers. We set out to modernize QuarkXPress 10 – not just technologically, but from a usability perspective too. Every update and new feature will offer designers more precision, more flexibility, and a more intuitive design space,” said Gavin Drake, Vice President of Marketing, Quark Software Inc. “Though a behind-the-scenes element of QuarkXPress 10, the new Xenon Graphics Engine won’t go unnoticed, especially for designers working on highly graphical projects. It will set a new bar for how designers view the images they work with every day.”
