GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – November 16, 2022 – Quark Software, the global provider of content design, automation and intelligence software, today announced the release of QuarkXPress 2023. The world’s most powerful page layout and digital publishing software now accelerates design projects by featuring tools for converting book projects to eBooks, plus ‘first-to-market’ Picture Content Variable functionality that simplifies the picture placement process and provides a single point of control over picture updates across multiple layouts. Additionally, new support for long document creations empowers users – from students, independent designers and content design teams – to create and import long documents up to 10,000 pages, a 5x increase from 2,000.
“QuarkXPress 2023 has some excellent new productivity features to support the end-to-end creative process, with the power to deliver projects big and small,” said Deepak Goyal, Sr. Vice President R&D, Quark. “Everything we do is about enhancing the content design process and delivering the capabilities to support the ability to produce and publish brilliant content design ahead of deadline. QuarkXPress gives content designers the power to bring their creativity to life while increasing productivity and ensuring timely output with 100% accuracy.”
QuarkXPress 2023 is compatible with macOS Ventura. Additional new features and enhancements include:
Picture Content Variable – Users can create a Picture Content Variable from either the Content Variable palette or the Content Variable menu by selecting any image. Once created, the Picture Content Variable can be used with any picture box across multiple layouts of a project, to be the single point of control for any picture updates.
Long document support – Support for the number of pages has increased from 2,000 to 10,000, empowering users to import long documents from various file formats, including Adobe InDesign in IDML or INDD file formats.
Project conversion capabilities – Users can export a Book as a Reflow ePub with the option to easily generate a Table of Contents for the ePub. Users can also merge chapters of a Book as a single project, including Table of Contents and Index entries, and control duplication of print and digital layouts, and page order prior to final content output.
More spell check engine choices – Users can now select either Hunspell or Dieckmann spell check engines and see the selected dictionary in the spell check palette.
Current users and new customers also can purchase QuarkXPress add-ons through the Quark online store.
