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.

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!

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.)

Top notch quality upgrade, very impressed, this is a compelling upgrade from older versions and even from InDesign! The Typography engine is significantly improved, best in the business!

It is only $850 if you live in an area that Quark services. In South Africa, we HAVE to go via a reseller, pushing the price to double that. I've complained, quark ignored, indesign won.

I used QuarkXpress for years in the industry. However, they never listened to their users, even as the newer pups came biting at their heels with the features everyone wanted. Transparency anyone? This completely frustrated me and reluctantly after trying my best to persevere, I started using the competitors, and I've never looked back. With the droves of users abandoning Quark, it took them till only recently to start listening, and $849? I can't see them clawing them back now. Possibly if they offered it for $200. It's a shame, as I'd like to see viable competition and InDesign is far from perfect, but you know what they say - once bitten, twice shy.

Can't wait for Affinity Publisher to come out and drive the final nails in this coffin. $850 for this piece of trash, expensive upgrade prices every time, still horrible UI. How is this company still around? Who is paying upgrade fees for it and why do you do it?

Well, Quark has risen from the ashes and is now what I believe to be the best publishing app out there. Versatile, fully featured for print and electronic work... No, I'm not an employee and I have no connection whatsoever with the company, but I've used QXP since version 3 and after buying the lacklustre v10 I, too, thought Quark was done for. V11 was pretty stunning, but the new one knocks spots off its competition. If you haven't used QXP for a few years, or you simply want to know what you're missing out on, download a demo. From a company once infamous for ignoring its customers' problems and queries, posts to the company's Facebook page get answered promptly - often within a few minutes - and they help with the older versions, too. I cannot praise Quark or the new Quarkxpress highly enough. Once a no-hoper, Quark is now one of the best, most responsive companies out there. Wish I could give it six stars.
