QuarkXPress PowerPC

QuarkXpress is a professional and very powerful page layout and graphic design software that lets anyone create and publish rich, compelling material for print, the web and other digital media using one easy tool.  Its proven QuarkXpress is the must have software for in house, agency and independent designers.   The newest version 9.5 is Intel only but looking back, I found some previous version that are PowerPC friendly.

* QuarkXpress – 8.5.1 – 10.4/10.5 (Tiger/Leopard) – (Free 30 days Test Drive) – http://www.quark.com/Products/QuarkXPress/  –  Before purchasing, please contact the developers to make sure they will provide the right version and the compatible license, because you are required to sign-up before you can download, and try it for free.

  1. A free DTP-package is Scribus. Current version is Intel-only, I will try to find out if there is still an older PPC-version.

  2. QuarkXPress has some awesome features, especially for ePublishing, and there are valuable QuarkXPress solutions from Quark and Markzware to help Mac and Windows users take advantage of those features. Serious DTP’rs will want to check out the QXP solutions on those websites and get QXP tips from the Quark and MarkzwareTV videos on YouTube.

  3. The only serious free option for desktop publishing right now is Scribus (http://www.scribus.net/). It’s software, not web-based. I’ve used it a few times and it’s pretty decent. Of course, I also have QuarkXPress, which I prefer. Hope that helps!
