About QuarkXPress

QuarkXPress is used by hundreds of thousands of professional designers and hobbyists around the world to perform almost any print or digital task. Built on a fast 64-bit architecture with uniquely innovative features, QuarkXPress has surpassed the competition in many areas. Unlike any other tool, QuarkXPress provides Bezier editing so designers can remain in one application for page layout with high-end typography and vector drawing.

Now, with QuarkXPress 2017, which introduces new non-destructive image editing capabilities, designers are able to manipulate images within the context of a design without having to constantly switch to image editing software. Designers can also place, convert, and edit almost any graphic format – including Photoshop, PDF, and Illustrator files – directly within QuarkXPress. Also, to make switching to QuarkXPress even easier, designers can import or convert existing layouts and graphics created with InDesign, CorelDraw, or Microsoft Publisher via PDF or copy and paste using the “convert to native objects” features in QuarkXPress.
