QuarkXPress 9.3

Quark continues to focus on ebook publishing with the release of QuarkXPress 9.3, which now enables you to export content directly to Amazon’s Kindle format without additional plug-ins. The update also provides support for inline tables of contents in EPUB files, a variety of unnamed fixes and enhancements to EPUB and Reflow views, and a fix for occasional crashes that occurred on some MacBook Pro models while concurrently saving a document and running a Time Machine backup. Additionally, the release resolves issues with facing page reordering, EPS/PDF previews, PDF box sizes, and more. ($849 new, free update, 1.1 GB, release notes)
