Quark Releases macOS Sierra Update for QuarkXPress 2016
Denver, CO - 10/5/2016 - Quark Software Inc. released today the October Update for QuarkXPress 2016. With the new update, QuarkXPress 2016 now officially supports the new OS version 10.12 (Sierra), released by Apple on September 20. In addition to supporting macOS Sierra, the new update to QuarkXPress addresses additional known issues.
The update is for both Mac and Windows versions of QuarkXPress 2016 and free for all current QuarkXPress 2016 users. It can be downloaded using the built-in Auto Updater in QuarkXPress or downloaded here: http://www.quark.com/Support/Downloads/.
QuarkXPress 2015 will also run on the macOS Sierra and users will have access to customer support. Users should check for known issues on Sierra before using QuarkXPress 2015 on Sierra.
Attention QuarkXPress Users on Versions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10
