New Features
System Req.

QuarkXPress is a powerful tool for creating content across publishing platforms. For print design, it gives you precise control over text, images, shapes, colour and opacity, and it¿s compatible with a broad range of file formats. For digital design, you can create and publish richly designed, interactive content for eBooks, the iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Android Tablets, Smartphones and more.

New inside and out, QuarkXPress 10 includes Quark¿s new Xenon Graphics Engine, Retina display support, a modern architecture, and over fifty feature enhancements that streamline the design process and improve the design experience.

What's new in QuarkXPress 10?

New Cocoa environment for Mac OS X

QuarkXPress 10 is the first version of QuarkXPress to run as a native Cocoa app. Cocoa is the current and preeminent application environment for Mac OS X. Being a Cocoa app brings a number of benefits to QuarkXPress 10, including the ability to leverage the latest OS X features, maximize performance, and rapidly support new OS X releases.

Xenon Graphics Engine

The new state-of-the-art Xenon Graphics Engine takes full advantage of your computer¿s processing power, rendering rich PDFs, Photoshop and TIFF images to give you maximum performance at the most appropriate resolution.

  • Native and deep understanding of image and vector files - PDF, AI, TIFF, JPG, PNG, PSD and more.
  • Adaptive resolution - always delivers the best onscreen resolution without compromising performance ¿ in real time and irrespective of zoom, crop and even while positioning graphics.
  • Rich understanding of PDFs - PDFs are dynamically rendered using rich knowledge of fonts, vectors, colors, gradients, and transparency within a PDF for better onscreen rendering and faster output.
  • Takes full advantage of latest processor technology - utilises the dedicated vector processors within core hardware and supports multi-core, multi-processor, multi-threading, SSE3, and Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX).

Modern and Optimised User Interface

In order to further optimize the design environment, QuarkXPress has been overhauled on the outside too with a modern new look:

  • Next generation palettes - dock palettes to screen edges, turn on hiding, drag and drop palettes, snap to windows and more.
  • Full screen experience - expand the design environment to fill the entire screen with one click.
  • Page navigator - easily scan through the page thumbnails and go directly to a chosen page faster with new navigation elements and command keys.
  • Measurements palette - completely replaces the functionality of the Modify Dialog including the previous shortcut keys, enabling continued access to a layout with the option to modify more than 100 layout settings while still interacting with the page.

HiDPI and Retina Display Support

With a pixel density so high that the human eye can¿t distinguish individual pixels, every element of QuarkXPress 10 has been optimised to take full advantage of high-resolution Retina displays.

QR Code Generator

Generate vector Quick Response (QR) codes directly within QuarkXPress then style and colour them the way you want. Supports text QR codes such as URLs and SMS as well as vCards.

East Asian Typography

QuarkXPress lets layout artists work with East Asian typographical concepts such as vertical story text, hanging characters, punctuation character width handling, phonetic text reading (rubi), font sets, character grids, grouped characters, and intelligent font mapping.

QuarkXPress includes deep and wide support for East Asian typography. You can combine vertical and horizontal story text in the same layout, and group sets of characters (such as acronyms) to flow properly in vertical stories.

PDF pass-through transparency

Avoid flattening and create smaller, more nimble, device-independent PDFs. QuarkXPress objects can interact with placed PDFs and maintain the transparency throughout your workflow.

Enhanced Word integration

Take Microsoft Word documents with text, hyperlinks, 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.

Plus more...

Other enhancements include:

  • Print preview - ensure your output settings are correct before you print with new thumbnail page previews in the print dialogue.
  • Full screen colour browsing - utilise the full size of your screen to add and edit colours in QuarkXPress.
  • Improved IME support - correct entered text without having to retype the phonetic again by easily choosing different characters from the candidate list.
  • Layer enhancements - make layers an integral part of your design with support for layers on master pages.
  • Highlight missing fonts - find text that uses a missing font in a layout.
  • Plus much more...

QuarkXPress - Key Features

Streamlined, modern, intuitive interface

The streamlined, modern, intuitive interface of QuarkXPress provides a workspace that lets you achieve your design and layout goals as effortlessly as possible.

Intelligent Palettes

Intelligent palettes and windows that are aware of their surroundings mean you spend less time arranging and more time designing. Dock palettes to screen edges, turn on hiding, drag and drop, snap to windows and more. Shortcut keys enable even faster access and the Palette Sets feature makes remembering your favourite configuration a breeze.

Adaptive Resolution Technology

When it comes to viewing images within a layout, most desktop publishing tools ask designers to compromise on quality, performance or both. In contrast, by utilising the latest processor technology, the Adaptive Resolution feature in QuarkXPress delivers high-resolution images every time without compromising performance.

Task-based Tools

One of the most time-consuming aspects of design and production is getting to the right tool at the right time. QuarkXPress minimises your trips to the Tools Palette by putting the right tools at your fingertips.


Is there a logo, a design, a run of text you use all the time? Put them in a library ¿ then the next time you need it, you can just drag a copy of it from the library to the page.

Multiple Views

To tweak details, you have to zoom in. To get the big picture, you have to zoom out. QuarkXPress lets you do both at the same time. With the Split View feature, you can divide a window into separate views of the same layout, and each view acts like a separate window, with its own magnification. You can even divide views across multiple monitors.

Learn Once for Multiple Channels

QuarkXPress provides a toolset that lets you design and publish for a variety of output formats ¿ including the smartphones, e-readers, and tablets ¿ without having to learn a different skill set for each, learn to write code or programme, or purchase additional software applications.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Years of experience have expanded and honed the set of keyboard shortcuts in QuarkXPress to the point where you can work so fast that people watching you can¿t keep up with what you¿re doing.

Drag and Drop

QuarkXPress lets you drag text and picture files onto the page from your desktop. You don¿t even have to draw a box; just drag it in and you¿re done. You can also drag content to and from other applications, such as Adobe Bridge and iPhoto.
