What's New in QuarkXPress 2018

PDF support

Tagged/Accessible PDF

Accessibility compliant PDFs are not just important but often mandatory. Many large corporates, governments suppliers are required by law to supply information published online in an accessible format. HTML5 is an obvious choice; often workflows require accessible PDFs. The new PDF engine in QuarkXPress 2018 combined with new tools for accessibility make this possible. Even if you don't need tagged PDFs for accessibility reasons, there are many benefits to understanding the text flow embedded within your PDFs.

Now with leading PDF technology, QuarkXPress 2018 is the first layout application with the ability to create one single PDF/X-A file that complies with both the PDF/X-4 and PDF/A-2b standards. Combined with the new built-in JavaScript capabilities, the new PDF Print Engine opens up a broad new way for print production automation.
