Our one client (of about 200) that still uses Quark switched platforms (from Mac to PC). We told them that we weren't going
to buy the PC version, but that I'd be happy to walk them
through making a proper .pdf file from PC Quark 6. After
about 10 minutes I started geting perfect .pdf files from them.
I'm still happy with my pdf workflow, they are happy (I guess)
with Quark. Let the love fest begin :)

I use both Quark XPress & Adobe InDesign. Both are good, neither is perfect. No point trading insults over which one's better.

Look at the bright side -- No one's arguing any more about the advantages of PageMaker over Quark!

Well I guess it could be worse, imagine if they were using something like Publisher? :roll:

Worst layout app choice I've had to deal with? Client once brought me a newsletter done in Powerpoint, with the slide size set to 8.5 x 11. Amazing.

And most recently I was asked to convert a design to a Word template which would still separate to a 2-color print job. Weee!

Bascially anything from Microsoft for high end reproduction spells headache.

Yeah, well, I have a client who still uses PageMaker & Mac OS 9. So I still do a lot of work in it, too. Books, no less!

Anyone still using Ready, Set, Go! (silly name for a page layout program) or UniQorn?

Old, forgotten software...

How about Letraset ColorStudio? It was an early Photoshop competitor, eventually morphed into Fractal Painter, which is now owned by Corel.

Or Macromedia XRes (another Photoshop-style program)?

You know, at one point, Quark was working on a photo/paint program, but it ever got past the development stage. I can't think of the name right now.

Come to think of it, now that Macromedia is part of Adobe, maybe Quark could buy FreeHand from them!!! Is that a great idea or what???
