Press Quotes

“QuarkXPress 2015 is a valuable upgrade for QuarkXPress users who make ePub files, work with lots of tables or footnotes, or need running headers. By also providing the top 10 most-requested feature improvements, Quark has made this an upgrade every user will want.”
- Macworld

“Recommended Overall score: 1.6 (Good). QuarkXPress 2015 is a versatile design tool that inspires. In addition to an array of advanced functionality in the new version, a surprising number of third-party developers have already made available XTensions, which will benefit many users.”
- Macwelt

“Even faster. With its new 64-bit architecture, QuarkXPress 2015 offers users a performance advantage. Designers will appreciate a number of new user-requested features for the production of print and digital content, such as interactive fixed layout books and custom page sizes.”
- Prepress – World of Print

“Performance improvements, PDF/X-4 export and interactive fixed layout ePub make an upgrade to QuarkXPress 2015 worthwhile for many. With the improved graphics engine, QuarkXPress brings text and images to life in greater detail and quality on the screen compared to InDesign.”
- Mac&i

“User feedback drives QuarkXPress 2015. The new version of QuarkXPress shows off new features based on users' wishes without losing Quark’s strategic focus on advancing HTML5-based digital publishing.”
- Publisher

“Quark has clearly thought about how to make QuarkXPress feel faster. QuarkXPress is quite quick to use with plenty of short cuts and a general sense of having most tools at hand without searching through menus. Is it worth the upgrade? For many people, the move to 64-bit programming with the subsequent improvement in performance will probably justify the cost of upgrading.”
- Spindrift

“The combination of maturing web and e-book technologies, combined with Quark's steady pursuit of a platform that takes all forms of publishing equally seriously, has really come together in QuarkXPress 2015. The program's roots in ‘desktop publishing’ still show - a delight for "old print guys" like me - but as we've grown and gotten more versatile in response to a changing market, so too has QuarkXpress. It's good to see our old friend again.”
- MacNN

“4.5 from 5 Stars - very good. QuarkXPress 2015 is up to date and lets layouters work better.”
- MacLife

Support for Verified PDF/X-4 Output

Work Smarter with Designer-Controlled Automation

Work Smarter with Designer-Controlled Automation

QuarkXPress has always been about automation. From the early days of style sheets, master pages, indexes and TOCs to more recent additions such as shared content, conditional styles and callouts. QuarkXPress 2015 builds on this legacy with new long document features including:

  • Automatic footnotes and endnotes
  • A new, faster alternative table tool for superior Excel integration with table styles
  • Content Variables for automatically populating reoccurring fields – like running headers, page numbers, dates, references and static text
Fixed Layout eBooks with App-like Interactivity

Fixed Layout eBooks with App-like Interactivity

Building on the popularity of reflowable eBooks (ePub) and stunning interactive apps from App Studio, QuarkXPress 2015 combines the best of both worlds with a new digital output format. You can now create HTML5 fixed layout eBooks without any additional software or costs. The fixed layout eBook format (ePub3 or Amazon’s KF8), displays pixel-perfect layouts such as science reports or colorful animated kids books without the complexity and cost of creating and maintaining native apps. Unlike many fixed layout creation tools, your layouts need not be static either. You can add interactive enrichments such as slide shows, page flips, animations and more.
