QuarkXpress 4 for PC is simply fantastic. It does everything you could possibly want in DTP, and it does it powerfully. Quark is able to handle enormous documents as if they were a sheet of A4. Getting used to the Quark interface is an easy process as so many of the icons are self-explanatory. You can size boxes down to a tenth of a millimetre and the 'show grid' option enables you to drag multiple items to line up exactly. At the click of a mouse you can also flip, rotate and duplicate boxes, and as Quark works with Pantone you can fill them with any colour you could think of. The transparency option means that you can put layer upon layer to create great multi-faceted documents with real depth. Quark handles images brilliantly too, allowing you to link to an original image whilst having only a low reoslution replica in the actual document, making loading and saving very fast, as well as speeding up the process when you want to print proofs. You can convert text to boxes and fill them with imagery and colour, you can draw your own text paths so you can have your letters take all sorts of journeys around your page, and the leading box lets you dictate just the spacing you're looking for. This is only a small taster of what Quark can do. I can't recommend highly enough that - if you/your company can afford it - you try it for yourself and start producing the kind of results you always suspected you were capable of but never had the tools to prove it. And don't worry if you're new to DTP or upgrading from something like MS Publisher, the manual and tutorial that comes with Quark covers everything you need to know in a straightforward, easy to follow style.

Nice review

As a Quark user on the Mac platform for 10 years now, it is obviously the best. It's nice to hear someones comments from the PC side of things. As I am trying to get people in other departments to purchase it for their PC's I feel your opinions will help me in my quest - Thankyou. And if you get any problems feel free to e-mail me.
