What Customers Say about QuarkXPress 2017

“QuarkXPress 2017 introduces a set of image manipulation controls that effectively end the back-and-forth required between software applications. For users who are still stuck with page layout software that can’t directly manipulate images, QuarkXPress 2017 presents a compelling reason to switch.”
Martin Turner, Brandmotor UK

“I love the UI with the flat tool icons.”

“I’m using QuarkXPress for my paper and it makes great PDFs. I have the Adobe Suite as well, but keep using QuarkXPress because I find it’s more intuitive.”

“QuarkXPress is my first choice to produce all of my clients’ marketing materials. I use it every day and my clients love the creative work I produce for them.”

“I’ve been using QuarkXPress since 1992 and I don’t see myself working with another program.”

“I’ve been giving QuarkXPress a solid workout with my latest project.”

“I’m very pleased with its speed, stability, flexibility, etc. I know I’m barely harnessing its power and capacity, but even at the (outdated) level of my usage, it’s a pleasure to use. And I can’t stress enough my delight in its stability.”

“So, it’s a pleasure to tell you I think the Quark team has more than brought the application back from the brink, and I’m glad I have an alternative to Adobe that is so satisfactory to use.”

“I rarely enjoy long support calls, but this was exceptional — I throughly enjoyed your support.”

“Working with the new version of QuarkXPress is so much fun. I really like the dynamic guides that save me lots of time in creating and aligning items.”
