Geez, you got me extremely excited!!! *sigh*

I thought you were going to tell us something big.......something HUGE..........something bigger than Quark. :(

Anyway, great news if you think Quark is exciting.

Check out Apple's home page. But my question is why? If you have ever used InDesign 2.0, why on earth would you go back to quark? And if you are using quark, why are you not using InDesign? InDesign is a better program by far.

What does everyone else think?

Quark will finally let the dam loose on Mac OS X migration.

1. Quark is only going to work with Mac OS X.
2. Quark users have not been happy with Apple's Mac OS X only booting decision since September
3. Quark users have switched to InDesign if they could afford to.
4. Quark has the niche of the design market only recently is Adobe
making inroads into.

Yes Quark is big, really big. About as big as its namesake is small
in the atom!

Now Apple no longer has any reason to make any more OS 9 capable machines. :D

Quark Xpress sur la gueule!

It's been 2 years... I can't say that I am a proud user of Adobe InDesign since the applications isn't as sharp as Quark. I can't wait to try this new version! (Which might offer new features...?)

well **** me, I never thought I'd see the day. only two years to wait before they release a Panther version now....

could be perfect timing for me though.....oh everything is working out sooooo to plan :D


edit: crikey, how american did that sound? :rolleyes:

edit: but wait! no f***ing manual????? of all the programs that should come with a manual it should be this one.....not because it's necessarily difficult, but because that's the whole idea of the program! grrrr. also feels like you get much better value for your money i reckon

love quark, hate quark...this is still a good thing.

This release means Adobe will have to keep inovating indesign.

er, no i don't think so (damn, that reminded me of Mega-Lo-Mania!)

there's so many scanners and printers out there (among other things) that refuse to work in OS X (unfortunately) that I will probably be buying a new dual 1.25ghz as it's still boots OS 9. I called Heidelberg asking about scanner software and they said they were going to windows rather than writing an OS X complaint piece of software, bastards.

Ouch - look at memory recommendation

System Requirements:
Mac OS X v10.2
CD-ROM drive for installation
Minimum: 128MB RAM, Recommended: 1024MB RAM
230MB available hard disk space for QuarkXPress installation

OUCH! Recommendation of a GIG of RAM! (I am spec'ing all new machines with at least a gig, but plenty of older ones, like the Pismo I'm on now, can't take that much.)

It's about time though...

and quark FINALLY gets multiple undos and a wonderful new spyware copy protection.

I like how they continually treat users like criminals... i'll never forget the hours of hell trying to install Xpress 4 Passport on a g4 350 with no ADB dongle. And how i have to wait 4 weeks for them to send a keyspan...

by that time, i got the quark cracker from carracho and was up and running.

InDesign is FAR superior, and i've noticed no difference in my printed files. And my designs haven't suffered... it IS the talent, after all.

I just prefer ID. And if my printer wants my business, he will too. And he has. :)

Hmm, Apple announced before Quark

So, it's up on Apples site, but not Quarks. The Quark site still shows the preview stuff, but no announcement about a soon to be ship date. Kind of funny that they are so laxed about things that they haven't announced anything yet. But rather it's Apple and all the Apple news sites bringing the announcement to us.

Re: Hmm, Apple announced before Quark

has anyone seen screenshots? the measurements palette is FRIGGIN HUGE

Uck. And teh rest of the palettes seem to have put on some weight too. Looks like Ol' Quark is sagging, showing some age, and eating too many donuts. ;)

poor port IMHO

Actually, the pismo can take a gig of RAM, the ram that they shipped with is removable, not soddered on, go to xlr8yourmac.com and do a search, they have instructions in there. The machine will even register it as a gig, just throw in two 512 chips.


OMG Quark has come to be. This is the last piece of the puzzle for a lot od designers. To a big portion of Mac Users, Quark is the holy grail. I've met very few layout and design pros that really think InDesign is better, most I know have been using it as a stopgap.
