The file I translated was a large file … There were hundreds of names on a gray background which translated just fine except there were multiple text boxes … And … a white background around the text. Other than that it was flawless.
– Joel Klaassen, ID2Q user & reviewer

“The Beauty of QuarkXPress
Just wanted to share my happiness with QuarkXPress. After years of using InDesign (and stopping at Version CS 5 – I refuse to subscribe to my software), I made the decision to come back to QuarkXPress. … The issue I just sent to press was the first completed cover to cover in QuarkXPress. Stepping out of what was my comfort zone and trusting QuarkXPress to deliver the goods. Very satisfying. … I’ll also add that Quark support has been amazing and VERY responsive.”
