Quark 8 - still low-quality for EPS files?

Actually, the Rant and Rave section of Craigslist would be good for a lot of the bellyaching. More or less like an online bar, without need for ID checks...

Quark 8 - still low-quality for EPS files?

This is set by default to preview placed artwork in low-resolution mode. InDesign is also set this way, and looks pretty much identical layout-for-layout with Quark (and just had an editor ask why an Illustrator EPS was displaying ragged in ID). I do a lot of magazine design--if all of my placed EPS...

QXP8 does not play nicely with others...

The extension compatibility issue is to expected any time an application undergoes a major upgrade. Illustrator or InDesign will present the same problems when the CS4 upgrade comes out...

Quark 8 - The Good news and the Bad news...so far

Thanks for the info. Could the PDF trap engine be a proprietary technology that Quark can't get?IIRC, some time ago, there was a lens technology that Canon had developed, and Nikon needed. Of course, it was in Canon's interest to keep this advantage away from competitors. Later, Nikon did have some ...

Quark 8 - The Good news and the Bad news...so far

Almaink--I have been scouring the site--is there any plan to have a live transparency export? I remember you pointing out that JAWS supports this, what else could be holding up Quark?And, how is artwork preflighted for a live transparency workflow? I produce magazines, and run all submitted artwork ...

QXP8: an hour in

That is a given--pretty much the same with any app. Since Extensis and Gluon have yet to upgrade their XTs, I will not be moving major work over to 8 yet. Just testing it out now...

Well, I'm still going through it all, but the greatest news is that the alien is still there--that retro blast from the past!

Color Printer Purchase Help Please

Other posters have good suggestions, but another cost to keep in mind is paper. Good proofing stock is quite expensive--you should expect at least $2 per sheet (same goes for good photo paper) in larger sizes. Not meaning to complicate things, but this is an area where consumables can quickly outstr...

They can't release QuarkXPress 8 yet !!!

It will indeed, be interesting.I use both Quark and ID, and admittedly, both have their strengths and weaknesses. For reasons of competition and innovation, I hope that Quark keeps it enough together to be a viable alternative, and not have Adobe be the only game in town.
