The opinions of the Macworld editorial team and the magazine’s readers are ones that we have huge respect for. QuarkXPress 9 launched into a very dynamic market with the fast-paced change that digital publishing is driving – especially as a result of the iPad. Therefore significant credit must go to the engineering and product management teams at Quark for their continued innovation to meet the evolving needs of our customers and establish a leadership position for digital publishing. I can t think of a more fitting way for Quark to celebrate 30 years of revolutionizing publishing."
