    I read an arti­cle about their new pre­flight fea­tures with­in the appli­ca­tion. I used PasteBoard and FlightCheck Professional from Markzware for over 7 years now. I think they have a patent on their prod­uct. I hate to see Quark and Adobe rip­ping off oth­er com­pa­ny patent. Adobe In-Design has pre­flight build-in but its so lame. I still use FlightCheck Professional, it save my life so many time and I will con­tin­ue to stick with it.

    Call me crazy, but I am look­ing for­ward to the Quark event. I’ve don­wloaded and used Quark 7 beta 1 and 2, and I am real­ly impressed with the qual­i­ty of the pro­gram, espe­cial­ly on the Mac plat­form. I’ve used the soft­ware on Windows XP and Mac OS X. I tried both InDesign CS and QuarkXPress 7 and I feel that Quark has the upper-hand for my work. I can run QuarkXPress 7 beta 2 just fine on my iBook G3 with 768MB RAM. Try that with InDesign CS2 and you won’t get past the instal­la­tion pro­gram since it requires a G4 proces­sor, and is WAY too slow for me. The text qual­i­ty of InDesign CS is excel­lent, but I need lay­out speed. Quark delivers.
