Quark Software Inc. in March of 2015 plans to make available QuarkXPress 2015, the next major version of Quark’s design and layout tool, with what the company describes as the 10 most-requested enhancements from its user community.
This is to include new 64-bit architecture and support for PDF/X-4 output. The exported PDF/X-4 files are certified with the same technology used inside Adobe Acrobat. With this latest standard, Quark explains designers can preserve transparency to enable faster output, smaller files and higher quality print output.
QuarkXPress 2015 will also continue to be sold as a perpetual license. Along with PDF/X-4 support, QuarkXPress 2015 will include the following enhancements:
4x Larger Page Sizes
