Hey i no it is unusual but i love creating logos in QuarkXPRess not in a vectorprogram.
Once the buyer decided which logo he want i start rebuilding them in illustrator.
i know i can export text to paths so i didn't need illustrator but what if there i a special form behind the relevant logo is it possible to convert this form to a path as well so when i export my file i have a vector graphic ?
I hope you understand the meaning of this topic
my language is german so i gave my best here in english

Hello nivoa,

Any project made with QuarkXPress can be saved/exported into more formats.
If you need a logo saved/exported as vector, you can export it as EPS or PDF file.
If you don't want to use Illustrator, there are free alternatives for every major OS, like Inkscape, or a paid, but cheaper software like Afinity Designer.

If the image you refer to was created as a vector object in Quark, then saving as PDF or EPS should preserve the vector information when re-opened in Illustrator. If the object or image is a raster you'd need to outline it with the pen tool. I don't believe Quark has any option for converting raster to vector automatically. And honestly I've never found the automated options for that to be of much value in Illustrator or Photoshop, either. You'll get much better results working by hand.
