after years of blind faith for Quark and staunch support in the face of all those folks telling me otherwise, I've finally made the leap to InDesign and haven't looked back. Once you're used to the new tools, Quark seems antiquated - even version 7.

I'm glad to see Quark is at least trying to keep up with its competition, but just around the corner will be an ID update that will surpass whatever new features Q7 has. If you're using Quark, more power to you. I hope they keep making updates that offer usable new features, not just stuff to beef out it's numerical count of new stuff.

I've switched to InDesign, also. (two months ago) Been a long time Quark user, since v.3.3

I heard the UB update made it slower on the PPC, but much faster on the Intels. I don't want to start another Quark bashing thread, but let's just say I'm glad I don't have to use it anymore. That, or PageMaker. Ugh. InDesign is fine, but for those who still need to use Quark, I hope this helps. Waiting for that UB update Adobe. Any day now.

I remember the Quark developers saying that they'd never make a UB Mac app. What liars they turned out to be. Guess they weren't expecting Intel Macs to be so popular.

Never really used Quark that much. I think I used it for about a year working here. Then I found out about InDesign.. played with it.. and really liked it. Told my boss I wanted to switch to InDesign. Been using it since 2.0. Up to CS2 now.
