Quark alters licensing
Quark has altered its licensing for QuarkXPress, allowing users to run previous versions of the publishing software on the same computer with QuarkXPress 7. The licensing change enables customers who are planning to upgrade to QuarkXPress 7 to do so while testing their workflows at a pace that meets their unique needs while using previous versions of the software to support production and client requirements. "Quite simply, this is in response to customer feedback and is another example of how Quark has fundamentally changed its approach to doing business in the last two years," said Richard Pasewark, Quark senior vice president of sales and marketing in the Americas. "Customers are thrilled with QuarkXPress 7 and based on user feedback this policy change will help streamline and fast-track the upgrade plans for many customers."
The company also announced 'rave' reviews of Quark Interactive Designer, its new software enabling creative professionals to create rich, interactive content using QuarkXPress 7. The application allows designers to easily design Macromedia Flash layouts for the Web, without the need to know complicated code. Users simply design for multiple channels inside QuarkXPress using the Flash creation application with built-in collaboration features.
