QPS (Quark Publishing System) now supports Adobe InDesign with a streamlined workflow. The announcement came during Graph Expo and IFRA. QPS can of course use QuarkXPress with QuarkCopyDesk but now you can also use it with Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy in a single workflow at the component level. Quark fans rejoice!
According to Linda Chase ( GM, Quark Publishing System,) they talked to newspaper, magazines, marketing groups and advertising agencies and asked them their most pressing needs for collaborative publishing. Most responded that they needed to support Quark and InDeisgn in one workflow. With the QPS XTensions for InDeisgn they can spend more time collaborating and less time worrying about what sections are made in InDeisgn and which were made in Quark.
You can get the QPS XTensions for InDesign for both QPS 7.5 and the newer QPS 8. The software is now available for both Mac and Windows platforms. For more info check out http://dynamicpublishing.quark.com/qps/QPS_InDesign.html
It’s good to see Quark still fighting the big “A.” This will make it easier for people to support Quark without having to give up their favorite layout software. For the designers and typesetters out there, which are you using? Are you an InDesign user or a Quark user?
