QuarkXPress 7: Thumbs Up In The UK
Review gives V7 thumbs up for powerful features
A review of QuarkXPress 7 has just been published in The Independent, a major daily newspaper in the UK; it comes down strongly in favor of the newest version of Quark’s flagship.
Cited with praise are such items as additional new features without a multiplicity of new palettes, and while the interface, which has suffered few changes since the V4.x days, seems dated, this works in XPress’s favor since it keeps things as uncluttered as the user wants. Also viewed with favor are job jackets, transparency, image handling, and PDF exportation. Coming in as a hit, however, is the XPress learning curve; the reviewer seems to feel that new XPress users might have a difficult go.
