Quark 6 vs. In design

There are any number of interesting articles and reviews available. Here's one which may help you make a decision: http://www.creativepro.com/story/feature/20604.html Blatner used to be one of the biggest Quark advocates on the planet. Sandee Cohen was another one. Both switched to InDesign at versi...

Bloody disgrace

Which program was the one which substituted a low-res proxy image to edit, memorized all edits, then applied the edits to the main image on command? I tried that one out in the early '90s. It was FASTER than PhotoShop by far while working with it. You could spin the proxy of a 20 meg image around, l...

Bloody disgrace

PC G R, Good points. I was mostly looking at it if one company or the other had the monopoly, I know which company would handle it better. It's not easy to say what would have happened with PhotoShop had there been any real competition. I know all along the way, several companies have tried. You don...

Bloody disgrace

Why would it be an awful shame if Adobe took over the publishing market? If they treat their customers better, offer a better product at a better price, and the product is reliable, why would that be a shame? I know I'd be happy using the #1 page layout application while paying a fair price, getting...

Why, I ask, why?

Bigfeet, I never suggested InDesign for someone asking a technical Quark question on the MacDesign boards. I won't do it on these boards either. I caught a lot of crap from some users on that board when I said, "It's going to happen, it always does." As far as I'm concerned, that's just being realis...

Why, I ask, why?

Linda, while I agree with you that it is inappropriate in most cases for someone to jump in and shout, "Switch to InDesign" when someone is asking a technical Quark question - I disagree with the following statement you made earlier: These forums are not the appropriate place for anyone to eulogize ...

Why, I ask, why?

I think it's fair game to discuss competing products on message boards. First, you're going to have people who want to evaluate the benefits of both products against one another, especially if they're making a purchasing decision. Second, some people will want to evaluate the program they have to de...

Why, I ask, why?

[strong]Tim OConnor:[/strong] but some days these threads would have to be populated by ONLY Flamers in order to equal Abobe's.

Clearly, I disagree and believe that this assessment is unfounded.

Why, I ask, why?

[strong]Tim OConnor:[/strong]But if these threads were only populated by flamers, many users would feel as unwelcome as many of us do at Adobe's. Adobe's boards aren't only populated by flamers, yet quite a few people who prefer InDesign feel unwelcome on Quark boards. It's not a one-sided issue. Th...
