QuarkXPress 9 Europe West Edition Full - Price: €1,349.00 ($1,923.30!!!) Upgrade - Price: €399.00 ($568.746!!!) Ridiculous. That's a full CS5.5 suite including spelling in many languages. Are you crazy? Quark? Really???

Once again, MacUpdate is so late it is laughable... Quark 14.2.1 came out on Jan 24 2019. This is why I canceled my membership

I only just noticed this but a Mac App Store version called QuarkXpress 2018 Pro is available for $300 (normally $400, apparently) until Nov. 18th, 2018. The MAS version says it does NOT output to Kindle format, and is not scriptable via JavaScript, but appears to be otherwise the same.

A pretty good step forward! Nice large vertical measurement bar (make the right hand side bar and pointer tool large on retina displays as well please) helpful open type palette, and fonts are now separated by style. One note on that last thing, 2018 takes away the ability to type in a font and it's variation. Bring back the ability to do that immediately!

This software works great. I switched to it from InDesign CC which kept crashing. Initially, I was put off by the "old school" interface, but once I really started working on projects with it, I noticed how well thought out all the details are. It looks like in version 2017, they have really listened to customers: whatever I wanted to do, there was a specific feature for it that made it intuitive and easy.

I havve never been a big fan of Quark. To me its always been the "wanna be" of layout apps. I think the interface is clutsy and non-ituitive and they can't seem to make up their mind what and when to update features. After years of being away, I had to go back to Quark because a client insisted on it. I am recalling why I disliked it, but not I absolutely HATE it. This latest update constantly crashes on me any time I do any work with images. Its baffling and infuriating! I can't wait to be off of this piece of s**t!

So who was the "leader" then before InDesign? Pagemaker? I have the Creative Cloud suite, and InDesign is an absolute convoluted hot mess.

Since I cannot seem to respond to PhotoJedi directly:
I have used Quark since version 3 and frankly, it has never been the leader in page layout, so yeah, that would have been PageMaker. Well, maybe Quark was a leader in the period between PageMaker and InDesign, but it quickly squandered its lead with little or no updates and horrible customer service. I recall when InDesign 1.0 came out and it was indeed a piece of crap; took until version 2.5 to really get it to work properly. Granted, some of the updates have been a little quirky, but by and large, I have always found it to be more intuitive and far easier to use than Quark as well as much more stable. Things that I can do with one or two clicks in InDesign, are more convoluted in Quark or take keystroke combinations that are nigh impossible to do comfortably.

Quark has always had a reputation for being a "johnny come lately" and releasing buggy updates. I work on Mac and have NEVER had anywhere near the problems with InDesign that I have with Quark which are incessant with every update. And I've been working in design and advertising since the 80s.

This version of Quark is the first one I have used and I am loving it so far! I can't speak for how terrible previous versions may or may not have been. Be sure to take advantage of Quark's $400 competitive update that allows you to update from several competitors products (such as InDesign) to the latest version of Quark. I generally like this software a lot more then ID CS6 which is what I was using previously (and still use from time to time.)
