QuarkXPress 9.2 extends support for ePUB, Apple platforms

updated 03:15 pm EST, Thu January 5, 2012

ePUB 3 compatibility allows audio, video

Quark has posted QuarkXPress 9.2, an update of the developer's flagship publishing suite. A central focus of the upgrade is on the ePUB format; new projects can now be created specifically for ePUB export, and the software supports ePUB 3, a new standard which allows audio, video, and links. Apple may soon be adding ePUB 3 compatibility to iBooks.

Other ePUB-related changes include the ability to create articles, crop pictures and split text components in a reflow article, and reorder components in the Reflow Tagging Palette via drag-and-drop. Tables of content can be made hierarchical, and the format and resolution of pictures can be adjusted on a global or per-item basis. For east Asian ePUB books, users can set a default story direction.

Templates from the App Studio now support the iOS 5 Newsstand, and follow guidelines for iCloud storage. Hideable media playback controls can be built into layouts; three different pop-up styles have been added, and AVE-MAG issue files should consume less space. The v9.2 update is free for current QuarkXPress 9 owners.
