Here’s the list of all the main new features and improvements
included in this comprehensive upgrade:
Images and Vectors
Designers have to master a range of tools including page design, vector drawing and image editing. However, having to switch tools frequently is highly inefficient. QuarkXPress already provides Bezier editing so you can remain in one application for page layout and vector drawing. With the new image editing features in QuarkXPress 2017 you can also stay in your favorite design application while you perfect your images too.
New Non-destructive Image Editing (Adjustments)
Edit images by adjusting levels and curves, changing brightness and contrast, applying gamma correction and much more. All of your adjustments are non-destructive, so your original images stay intact. That means you can quickly remove effects and use the same image in multiple instances with different adjustments applied. You can also automatically create new, unique versions of one or all images with all of the adjustments applied. This includes downsampling, applying clipping (based on its picture box), and changing the color mode or image format. And all the new images created are automatically linked to the layout.
New Non-destructive Image Editing (Filters)
QuarkXPress 2017 also offers non-destructive filters for images. Filters include unsharp masking, embossing and contour tracing. This means you can easily apply these effects, like unsharp masking, at the end of the workflow, so just one image is needed even if there will be multiple destinations (different sizes, web, mobile, etc.).
New Transparency blend modes
QuarkXPress now introduces support for blending between two or more overlapping objects including images. Using the Image Editing palette you can easily multiply an image with its background, apply screening, color dodge and many more effects.
Designers use subtle typographic effects and micro-typography to underline and support marketing messages. These effects are only possible if your design software supports advanced typography requirements. QuarkXPress has always provided powerful typographic tools such as the still unmatched ability to apply horizontal AND vertical kerning as well as editing kerning pairs. QuarkXPress 2017 adds powerful new possibilities. Here are some highlights:
New Text Stroking
Use text stroking to create text outline styles without the need to convert text to a box. Create stunning effects by defining stroke line width, join points, miter settings and of course outline colors. And the text stays as text, so you can always edit it.
New Text Shading
Highlight a single word or a complete paragraph. You can adjust shading (a text background color) in numerous ways and of course the highlight moves with the text if it’s changed or adjusted. You can also set the frame around the text with or without text shading and add this effect into style sheets to be applied automatically.
New Column Spanning/Splitting
You need to span a headline in a 3-column text box over all columns quickly. With QuarkXPress now offering the ability to split and span column flow in a single text box, it’s just a click away. It even works if you want to split an existing textbox or even a column into more columns.
New Line Between Columns
To simplify the creation of column rules (lines between columns of a text box) QuarkXPress 2017 adds the capability to simply apply automatic rules to multi-column text boxes.
With QuarkXPress 2016 we introduced HTML5 Publications that display pixel-perfect layouts on all modern desktop, tablet, and mobile browsers, providing an easy and effective online experience. With HTML5 Publications you can go beyond static print layouts to add interactive enrichments such as scrollable areas, slide shows, animations and more. Quite possibly the easiest way to share your final magazine, newspaper, comics, reports, ads and more. With QuarkXPress 2017 we continued to innovate the digital output plus we added an option to even create iOS apps completely free on your desktop.
New Responsive HTML5 Publications (Multi Device Output)
QuarkXPress 2017 can export multiple digital layouts of different sizes as a single HTML5 package. For example, you can create a layouts for an iPad (Vertical and Horizontal), duplicate it using Adaptive Settings to iPhone (V and H) and adjust it. Both sizes are exported into the same HTML5 Publication so your readers will see the correct layout depending on the size of their viewing device. This happens responsively, meaning if your readers use a desktop browser to view these and decrease the browser window, they will suddenly see the iPhone layout instead of the iPad layout. Of course, you are not limited to two sizes, you can create as many different sizes as you need. Now your readers can have the most device-appropriate layout automatically.
New Adaptive Layout Conversion for Digital
QuarkXPress supports the rapid conversion of print layouts into digital media through adaptive conversion. Adaptive conversion lets you convert a print layout into a digital layout and automatically resize all design elements, even if you convert the layout to different aspect ratios. Adaptive Conversion allows you to specify which attributes of your design will be adjusted and which will stay in their original size. This speeds up conversion significantly between different media and devices.
New “Unlimited”* iOS Single App creation
Use the QuarkXPress digital layout capabilities to create innovative interactive experiences, all 100% based on HTML5. Now you can create as many single iOS apps as you like. No subscription, no per-app-fee, all done directly from within QuarkXPress 2017.
*The app creation functionality is subject to certain restrictions. You will need to create your own Apple Developer ID which is subject to Apple’s terms and conditions. Please see the QuarkXPress End User License Agreement for full details.
