I hate the complete overhaul of Quark 2019. I have been using Quark since the late 80s and I have always loved it. A perfect program. This overhaul is completely pointless and confusing. My fondest wish would be to have it back the way it was. I waste more time ****ing about looking for things I never had to think about. There is no improvement. Just some idiots who decided to put everything we were used to in a different spot.

I am forced to use Quark when working with client files. I cringe every time. I've lost track of the number of crashes.

Too huge! Too complicated. Support stinks. Horribly expensive. Affinity Publisher a much better choice, a lot less expensive too!!!

The software itself works very well except from the startup process which takes too long time to be convenient. The installation process was quite complicated and a hurdle since you needed to make go through a special application process to get the validation code -very inflexible method. Quark have stopped the support for Quark 2018 already after two years. No download file at the support pages since they want to force you to upgrade to latest version. After a long time chatting with the support they reluctantly mailed me the download link. So, even if you own the software, it is very difficult to re-install in case of you change computer or need to restore it.
