  1. I think it will be the same for QXP 2019. It is their discrete way of saying "the real price of QXP is 400 EUR now" until they officaly announce it. I can't say if they will go further with price dropping to 200 EUR via competitive pricing, after that.
  2. So, where they are? Are Quark keeping them in secret for something spectacular? I doubt.
  3. Hi Whitedog, I can only partly agree with you. Quark is not so expensive now. They cut the price by 50% for competitive upgrade (https://shopew.quark.com/p-189-quarkxpress-2018-competitive-upgrade.aspx) so you can buy it for 399 EUR instead for 829 EUR and you can upgrade for the same price if you own versions 2016 and 2017 (https://shopew.quark.com/default.aspx). IMO, Quark must cut the price once again by 50% and sell it for 200 EUR, because they can't offer what Adobe has (ID, AI and PS) and what Affinity has (Photo, Designer and now Publisher). To be honest, Quark can't compete with Photo and Designer and, even now, I can use Publisher for about 80% of my tasks. Publisher mainly lacks footnotes and Book feature (of course, a lot of other features, too) to be useful for creating long documents like books, manuals... And you are wright that Quark killed itself. No other to blame. Adobe just grabe the chance. They saw it and they managed. Quark is not so well organized as ID is. They need to work on Measurement palette, menus... In one word, they need to hire somebody to do it.

    PDF import, PDF Page Boxes

    Hmmm. I think that Affinity should enter a new feature if only it is prepared to all OS's and hardware. This way some users (usually Windows ones) are disciminated. Yes, I would like to have Mac Book Pro or iMac very much, but I can't afford it right now, so why to be put aside from the others?

    PDF import, PDF Page Boxes

    Sorry, but I can't find this drop down. I know that in Designer, when you try to import multiple images, there is a drop down menu with all imported images shown, to place them one-by-one into objects, but I can't find such in Publisher if it was that what you thought of.

    No, it is from CorelDRAW latest version, not X5 as it is shown at Mike's post. Thanks, Chris.

    PDF import, PDF Page Boxes

    Sorry Chris. I don't think I understand you well. Would you be so kind and explain it to me more thoroughly?
  8. Hi, When I Copy/Paste formated text with styles from ID, I get the text styles also, but it not works from Quark. Please, can you add this feature in Publisher. It is timesaving feature.
  9. Hi, I. Standard PDF import When I click to import the PDF page 1:1 the page is not shown corectly. Also, when I drag to resize the PDF page while importing, it is shown differently then in no. 1. Please, offer us a page range to import. II. With Page boxes Page boxes does not work corectly. I attached the PDF file (boi na muzej.pdf) I used to import and there are various kind of problems with the page box. Here are some of them: Just try all options from page boxes and you will see that they don't work as it should. III. Other My opinion is that page box options should be offered while importing PDF file, not when it is already imported (InDesign) When importing PDF page(s) there must be an option for embedding or linking the images. When I try to import multipage PDF file, Publisher offers me to link the pictures instead of embedding, which is correct. But, when I click "Yes" to accept linking and then click on a document page (A4 format) to place the first page I got only a thumbnail of the page (see the wrong size.png attachment) and the real size of imported page is 126 x 236 mm. Also, when I start resizing the thumbnail in one moment it stops showing the linked image(s). The second page and the others are not possible to import. boi na muzej.pdf
  10. Thanks, again. Can you explain to me what do you mean by: "- It is now possible to select the desired Page Box for a Placed PDF"?

    Excel tables

    Will Publisher's table cells adopt to the excel table (width, height, color...)?

    Excel tables

    What to do with the existing Excel tables? retyping them? And it is much easier and faster to make a table in Excel. And you can do calculations in Excel, as you know. With additional linking of the Excel tables it will be really great to combine these two softwares.

    Excel tables

    Yes, I know it is not a table as you can see from my request above.

    Excel tables

    No, you didn't understand me. I meant the second option "Paste Special > Windows Enhanced Metafile" with the first table.
