True for some, but we upgraded from Quark 4 to 6.5 primarily because a publisher that we do a lot of work for stipulated it as their software of choice. If we didn't upgrade, it was made clear that we'd lose the contract. No choice.

I'll keep that in mind! Thanks! I Thought this was a forum where people could express there thoughts and experiences with Quark.

How can it be the fault of the user if the software is full of bugs. I am not saying InDesign is perfect but I find it a lot more stable.

All anyone has to do is mention that they are having a good experience with InDesign, compared to Quark; Scripting Queen goes ballistic and launches into a tirade of personal insults.

In the larger community of DTP and graphic design, there are people who are interested in these issues. People want to make informed decisions about upgrades and which product suits them, and why. People like to share their experiences, good and bad. Scripting Queen always tries to stifle the topic.

Hmm... I must be missing the "between the lines" message where the tirade of personal insults was launched.

It doesn't take much to see it, really. It doesn't.

It's all in one post.

Scripting Queen: "How much more desperate can someone get?"

Was that a personal insult? Yes.

Scripting Queen: "On some points that were brought up in later posts. How could you blame Quark's productivity when worked over a network when the apllication itself is not made to do that. And that is not mentionning the fact that they are boosing on the job (That can only improve productivity right?")

Personal insult? Yes.

Not only that, if Scripting Queen can't figure out that Quark isn't working properly for this person on a network, and InDesign IS working properly on a network, his criticism is weak.

Scripting Queen: "Really people, be bitter all you want but the "true" culprit here is your poor "decision making process" in choosing a software that works for you as well as your inhability to organise your workflow around the tool of YOUR CHOICE."

Personal insult? Yes.

He's gone off before. He'll go off again.

I vote

longtimedesigner and Scripting_Ace meet in a dark allyway
and slug it out.

Keep the hate off the forums...

And longtimedesigner there is no need to jump in and start the abuse every time Scripting_Ace types something.

and visa versa...

marcus, I don't give scriptingqueen a hard time whenever he types something, and you know it. I didn't start the abuse, and you know that too.

I dont' even give scriptingqueen a hard time every time he launches into one of his insulting tirades.

I wouldn't mind seeing you criticize scriptingqueen for jumping on someone's case unnecessarily. Scriptingqueen's insults are where the abuse started. It could have been a friendly thread, and he was the first one to go hostile.

Maybe he'll learn not to take any mention of InDesign personally. I doubt it, but there's always hope.
