QuarkXpress 8 XML placeholder window

Post by RogueFour » 04 Aug 2008, 03:18

I'm trying out the test drive version of Quark 8 and can't seem to find the placeholder window for XML files. With vrs. 7 you needed to download an Xtension, is this going to be the same for vrs. 8? Please can someone help? TIA.

Quark has now released 8.01, but is there any news on XML usage in version 8?
I notice on the knowledge base it mentions XML and version 8, stating:
"More Information:QuarkXPress 8 can import XML into a template that has been set up withplaceholders."
But this isn't strictly true, is it?
Also when you look for the Placholder option in the Window menu list you still get Welcome Screen where placholder should be.
Please what's going on?

I've spent an hour to find what is the placeholder. Help doesn't contain any information.By searching on the Internet, I finally learned what it should be, and wondering why no XML XTensions are installed.Will they be included in the future XPress update? Or should we buy them separately?Tim, or some other person, please mention the latest situation about XML XTensions ASAP.

How soon is the near future now? As we heavily rely on this feature, this issue has become a stumbling block to upgrade our 5 copies of Q 7.5 to Q 8. Indeed it will prevent us from adding more copies as we expand.Help.

So it is looking like has quark abandoned XML in version 8, yes? I just downloaded the trial version of 8 and it doesn't seem that there is any XML support at all.
Should I come back and try again when they release version 9, or is this a permanent change?

After much digging around and some frankly useless replies from Quark Customer Services along the lines of "it'll be ready when it's ready", I got this prompt reply from Tim Banister, General Manager, Desktop Technology"Good day -Our XML Import for our version 8 software and will be available within 60 days. Thanks"within a few hours of me mailing him.This was on the 12th June so I'm waiting with bated breath until mid-September, at which point I will probably make the decision whether or not we should finally make the jump to inDesign if Tim doesn't make good on his promise.
