QuarkXPress users have always been very passionate. So it is no surprise that there exist many enhancement wishes for future versions of QuarkXPress, from small improvements to large feature requests.
In order to give the individual enhancements the right priority, in 2014 Quark conducted a survey to have users rank the wishlist (by individual importance).
The result of the ranking drove the development of QuarkXPress 2015 and 2016.
For example, in 2014 PDF/X-4, larger page size, footnotes/endnotes, multi-color gradients and color picker (eyedropper tool) had been ranked in the TOP 20 and therefore were built into the last two versions.
Of course there will be a few features where Quark will add some new innovations, like in QuarkXPress 2016 with HTML5 Publications and Convert PDF to Editable Objects.
And now Quark is asking you again, though there is no major new version on the horizon yet.
Remember, it’s pre-ranking time, so it is building the wishlist currently, meaning Quark is asking you, which features should be put on the ranking ballot.
So please participate.
Of course if you have submitted a wishlist item before, through tech support, Quark’s forums or social media sites or over the phone, these are already on the wishlist.
Enter your suggestion here please:

Though there can’t be any guarantee that your feature wish will be implemented, the past experience shows that Quark let you – the users of QuarkXPress – set the majority of QuarkXPress’ roadmap.
