The QuarkXPress 10 Upgrade from Quark allows you to explore creative expression with the right tools. When it comes to professional results, details matter. QuarkXPress 10 has been redesigned from the inside out to deliver high resolution graphics, useful productivity features, and a design canvas to accentuate your creativity. Designed to help you make content for print or digital media as well as tablet and smartphone apps, QuarkXPress 10 allows you to make a creative and professional layout to fit your needs.
Only QuarkXPress 8 and QuarkXPress 9 licenses are eligible for upgrades to QuarkXPress 10. Users of version 7 and earlier will need to purchase a new full license of version 10. Education and Non-Profit licenses are not eligible for upgrades.
Xenon Graphics Engine
Designers no longer have to concern themselves with preview resolution settings and screen performance. Adaptive Resolution in QuarkXPress means the graphics are rendered in real time in the highest required resolution to match image zoom, crop, and position. Text stays as text and vectors stay as vectors with no more low-resolution previews.
High Quality Visuals
The Xenon graphics engine in QuarkXPress 10 has been engineered from the ground up to leverage high performance processor technology. It utilizes the dedicated vector processors within each core of your hardware and supports multi-threading, SSE3, and Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) for high graphical performance. Graphics look sharp in QuarkXPress 10 thanks to a native and deep understanding of image and vector files. Pan and zoom to see graphics come into focus.
QuarkXPress 10 natively understands every aspect of placed PDFs within a layout. This includes fonts, vectors, color spaces, layers, transparency, blends, and gradients. Rather than working with low-res PDF previews, PDFs are dynamically mapped to the Xenon object model and rendered in real-time. Not only does everything from text to radial blends look crisp, it also outputs them faster too.
Advanced Image Control
Control layers, blend modes, color channels and clipping paths for placed Photoshop, TIFF, and PDF files all without leaving QuarkXPress using the new Advanced Image Control Palette. Please note that layer control is not currently supported in placed TIFF files.
HiDPI & Retina Display Support
Mac Retina Display Support
With a pixel density so high that the human eye can't distinguish individual pixels, every element of QuarkXPress 10 has been optimized to take full advantage of high-resolution Retina displays only found on Mac computers.
Intelligent palettes and windows that are aware of their surroundings mean you spend less time arranging and more time designing. Dock palettes to screen edges, turn on hiding, drag and drop, snap to windows and more. The shortcut keys enable even faster access and the enhanced Palette Sets feature remembers your favorite configuration. (Mac only)
Modern Development Environment
QuarkXPress on the Mac is now a native Cocoa app with a user interface that's tightly integrated with the rest of the operating system, including Finder, the Dock, and other Cocoa applications. Users benefit from new OS features and get a thoroughly modern, future-focused application with rapid support for future Mac OS releases and features.
Higher Contrast Color Scheme
The higher contrast color scheme has been applied consistently across the application to ensure that icons, actionable elements, radio buttons, checkboxes, and entry boxes stand out against the background, and palettes and dialogs contrast with the design canvas.
Designers love details. That's why QuarkXPress now offers the deep zooming options so that designers can, for example, position images as precisely as possible.
Dynamic guides automatically appear when items that are created, moved or resized align with other items on the page. Dynamic guides also show when items have the same width and height as other elements on the page or when several items have the same distance to other items to help evenly distribute elements.
Custom Color Schemes
Now you can create your own user interface color settings in the preferences menu. (Mac only)
Full Screen Experience
Expand your design environment to fill your entire screen with one click. When working across more than one screen, palettes can use one screen and your layout another. Set docked palette groups and auto hide for maximum real estate. (Mac only)
Use the enhanced Page Navigator to traverse through the page thumbnails and go directly to a chosen page. The navigation elements and command keys get you to your destination even faster. (Mac only)
The Measurements Palette is now the single most important destination in QuarkXPress. It replaces the functionality of the Modify Dialog including the previous shortcut keys, enabling continued access to your layout while tweaking more than 100 layout settings.
PDF Pass-Through Transparency
Avoid flattening and create smaller, more nimble, device-independent PDFs. QuarkXPress objects can interact with placed PDFs and maintain the transparency throughout your workflow. A deep understanding of PDFs enables transparency information to flow to final output. Placed PDFs can interact with native QuarkXPress objects without either needing to be flattened. Very complex transparency relations can be managed including blend modes and group transparency as well as how it composites from one object to another.
QR Code Creator
Bridge Online & Offline Marketing
Generate vector Quick Response (QR) codes directly within QuarkXPress then style and color them the way you want. Supports text QR codes such as URLs and SMS as well as vCards.
Design Content for Tablet & Smartphone Apps
App Studio is a cloud-based HTML5 solution that creates high quality apps for the iPad, iPhone, Android and other mobile devices. QuarkXPress works directly with App Studio to give you complete control over the design of your app content for multiple devices and orientations. Create digital magazines and newspapers, highly interactive eBooks, catalogs, research, financial reports, digital brochures and more.
How It Works
1. Create a free App Studio account 2. Add an App Studio layout in QuarkXPress for all the device sizes you wish to support 3. Design your app content with control over pictures, layout, and typography 4. Use the HTML5 palette to include engaging interactive behaviors such as slideshows, audio and video, hotspots and popups, buttons, scroll zones and zoomable images 5. Upload your layouts to the App Studio cloud using the App Studio Publishing palette 6. Get started for free and then upgrade to a paid publication plan once you're ready to publish 7. Optionally sell your content using in-app purchases and in-app subscriptions
Export to ePub & Kindle
Convert Your QuarkXPress Layouts into Standards-Compliant eBooks
With the QuarkXPress eBook Export feature, you can convert your QuarkXPress print files into well-structured, reflowable eBooks for popular reading devices such as the iPad, Sony Reader, and NOOK, or submit to Amazon for the Kindle. Use Reflow view to extract text and pictures from your QuarkXPress layout and turn them into text and picture components, then order and tag the content for consistent display in the Amazon Kindle e-reader and any eBook reader that supports the ePub standard.
What is ePub?
Electronic Publishing is an open standard for electronic books and Web publishing from the International Digital Publishing Forum. Introduced in 2007 as the successor to the Open eBook format, ePub documents are marked up in XHTML.

East Asian Typography Features
Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, & Korean Layouts
QuarkXPress lets layout artists work with East Asian typographical concepts such as vertical story text, hanging characters, punctuation character width handling, phonetic text reading (rubi), font sets, character grids, grouped characters, and intelligent font mapping. QuarkXPress includes deep and wide support for East Asian typography. You can combine vertical and horizontal story text in the same layout, and group sets of characters (such as acronyms) to flow properly in vertical stories.
At a Glance
Enable and disable East Asian Typography features in the QuarkXPress Preferences
Control the width of full-width punctuation characters depending on where they fall relative to the beginning of the line, the middle of the line, the end of the line, and other punctuation characters
Maintain perfectly aligned margins with predefined classes and sets of hanging characters, or configure your own classes and sets for different uses
Apply phonetic reading text (rubi) to text, and even automatically pull rubi text from the system dictionary for some languages
You can define different page grids for different pages, or even for different boxes on the same page. You can precisely control baseline position, cell alignment, and whether guides appear on the topline, centerline, baseline, or for the full cell. If a font is missing, the Font Fallback feature makes sure that a recognizable character displays, rather than a box. And custom font mapping rules enable you to properly handle projects that use UDA/VDA characters.
Ensure your output settings are correct before you print with thumbnail page previews in the print dialog.
Full-Screen Color Browsing
Utilize the full size of your screen to add and edit colors in QuarkXPress. Browse rich Pantones in multiple views to choose the one that's just right for your design.
Books & Collaboration
The rebuilt book feature now works seamlessly with projects and layouts so you can specify one or more layouts for inclusion in a single book. Books can sync indexes, table of contents and other design elements such as colors and style sheets and then export the book to one or multiple PDFs. This allows you to create publications that contain multiple page sizes.
Improved IME Support
Correct entered text without having to retype the phonetic again by choosing different characters from the candidate list. Send text to Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and 3rd-party IMEs.
Make layers an integral part of your design with support for layers on master pages. Paste also now remembers layers and if those layers don't exist in the target layout, QuarkXPress will create layers automatically. Use the palette preference to turn this feature on or off.
