About QuarkXPress
For over 30 years, millions of designers have used QuarkXPress® to produce high fidelity print materials. QuarkXPress offers the ultimate in creativity, design control, and professional print output.



Design, Layout and Professional Print Output  

Built on a fast 64-bit architecture with uniquely innovative desktop publishing (DTP) features, QuarkXPress has surpassed the competition. It provides Bézier editing so you can remain in one application for page layout with high-end typography and vector drawing. With the non-destructive image editing capabilities, you can even manipulate images within the context of your design, without having to constantly switch to other image editing software.

Great design, of course, is only half of the equation. The other half is output; the final printed piece must match what’s on the screen. This is ensured in QuarkXPress with print previews, soft proofing features, comprehensive color management, and support for international color standards. QuarkXPress also includes a built-in preflighting feature (called Job Jackets) that can identify potential output issues early in the design process. When your layout is ready to go, easy-to-use presets for print-ready PDFs (PDF/X3 certified) make sure output will go without a hitch.

Digital Design & Publishing  

QuarkXPress delivers a complete set of intelligent cross-media design and export features in a single application.  Create beautiful, functional digital designs and print publications all in the one software tool.

With QuarkXPress print designers are right at home and ready to go with their digital publishing projects. You can easily convert content from print to digital formats. You can synchronise content between print layouts, digital projects, and design for different device screen dimensions and orientations. You can even share colour definitions, style sheets, and other resources between different layouts. Plus, you only have to learn one skill set to design for multiple media — so you’re more productive with a faster time to results. What’s more, there is no coding required! Create it all within the intuitive user interface of QuarkXPress.Things You Can Do:

Integration with other Applications and Formats  

QuarkXPress was designed from the beginning to work with a wide variety of file formats.

Convert PDF, Illustrator, and EPS Files to Native QuarkXPress Objects
Say goodbye to time-consuming projects such as rebuilding logos and reconstructing PDF files sent by your clients. QuarkXPress is the first layout application to import PDF, Illustrator, and EPS files and convert them to native objects. Benefit from fully editable vector graphics, real text, and automatically extracted colors and font information. Simply copy items from other applications such as PowerPoint, Illustrator, or even InDesign and paste them into your QuarkXPress layout as Native QuarkXPress Objects, allowing you to easily complete or reuse them in QuarkXPress.
Import Text, Pictures, and Hyperlinks from Microsoft® Word
Take Microsoft® Word documents with text, hyperlinks, footnotes, and pictures and place them directly into your QuarkXPress layout. Text formatting and Style Sheets can be imported and hyperlinks are automatically added to the Hyperlinks Palette.

PSD and AI Import
QuarkXPress lets you import Adobe® Photoshop and Illustrator files, then hide and show layers and channels, clip to embedded paths, control layer opacity, and apply blend modes — all from right there in the QuarkXPress layout.

Import Tables and Charts from Microsoft Excel
QuarkXPress lets you import data from Microsoft® Excel spreadsheets, make it beautiful, and then update the content from the Excel file without losing any formatting.
