as a long time user of quark (some would say a masochist) I am shocked that they are going to provide an impressive xtension for FREE!! http://www.macworld.co.uk/procreative/news/index.cfm?newsid=17466 I know some would say that some of these features should be in the initial programme, but in fairness they have paid big money and are going to give it away, free! It includes amongst others: XPert Scale: Scale multiple objects and their contents in a layout quickly and easily. yes yes yes! QXP 6.5 is riddled with bugs but 7.1 seems to be the biz I'm in shock think I'll seek medical attention .
