QuarkXPress 9 Part.I

Now over 25 years that the veteran of the layout is to work.

The design and publication of paper documents are still the heart of the target and the ninth version brings some new tools. They consist mainly of changes in this version. One also wonders why some of them (e.g. Clone) were not incorporated into the software from version 3.32 ...
