Multiple Views

View articles in Galley, Full Screen, or WYSIWYG view, or all three at the same time using Split view. Content edited in one view updates in the other views simultaneously. Each view shows how your copy fits in the layout, as well as line counts, line breaks, and column breaks. Split view supports working with two monitors.

QuarkCopyDesk continuously displays under-set or overset amounts, word and line counts, and column depths, along with previews of images anchored in a text component.

Import and Edit Images in Any Format Supported by QuarkXPress

Import images in a variety of formats, including native Photoshop® (.psd) and Adobe® Illustrator® (.ai) files. And use the same image-editing features as in QuarkXPress to apply cropping, scaling, and rotation.

Notes and Redlining

Place electronic notes directly in article text. Notes travel with the article, even when it's checked into Quark Publishing Platform and imported into QuarkXPress.

Use redlining to track revisions and provide production teams and others with a record of changes. You can even view insertions and deletions made to an article, along with the details of who made each change.

Compatible with Industry-standard Word Processors

QuarkCopyDesk contains filters for exchanging text with Microsoft® Word and other common word processing formats.

Language Support

QuarkCopyDesk supports 12 user interface languages: Dutch, International English, U.S. English, French, German, Swiss-German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.

A menu selection allows users to choose the user interface (UI) language displayed in their specific regional edition. All UI languages are included in the QuarkCopyDesk® Plus edition. Users can choose among dictionaries and hyphenation in more than 30 languages.

Dual Activation / Dual Platform

You can install your single-user license of QuarkCopyDesk on a secondary computer (either a Mac OS® or Windows® computer) for concurrent use only. To activate dual licensing on the second computer, simply install QuarkCopyDesk on that computer.
