    I think inDesign is getting better every release.
    With the CS6 the digital publishing suite is great if you need to publish something on a tablet. and it's more itnegrated with the adobe suite, if you follow all the workflow from the layout to the editing of the single images/graphics I think it's the best solution.

    Haven't used Quark in years but then again - I'd say it's just a matter of habbit. InDesign offers similar to all other Adobe products interface. So naturally - if you know your way around Illustrator or Photoshop or Fireworks or After Effects etc. you will get the idea of InDesign real quick.

    My personal choice would have to be InDesign because of using Photoshop and Illustrator in my work.

    All in all my suggestion would be to use the one you are familiar with and if you're just starting now - go with InDesign. As someone mentioned - using Quark will have you using Photoshop and Illustrator anyway and Adobes Creative Suite offers really nice compatibility between programs like editing elements without having to Save + Close + Reopen files etc.

QuarkXPress once dominated the market for page layout software with over 95% market share among professional users. While one publisher estimates that share has fallen to below 25% and Adobe InDesign is now the market leader, QuarkXPress still has significant marketshare. There are open source competitors in the page layout space, the most notable of which is Scribus.

    Freehand or Illustrator?

    Quark was my first autoedition application (Pagemaker apart!), so I have a place for it in my heart. Unfortunately they didn't follow the user's needs along the years.

    After a hyper-stable version 3 and a very versatile version 4, Quarkxpress takes too long to launch an update... Adobe launched Indesign about the year 2000 while the next Quark version was launched about 2002; also Indesign 2. While Quark keep its plugin policy, and almost the same interface, Indesign were more "nice" and intuitive for beginners. Some of the effects used to be by pay in Quark were included for free in Indesign: Drop Shadow, for example.
    Also, the compatibility with other Adobe's products were the incentive for designers to do a step to Indesign: copy and paste from Ilustrator to Photoshop, from Photoshop to Indesign, from Indesign to Illustrator...

    Meanwhile, big agencies and press companies were still working with Quark 4 and 3.3 due to the higher cost of their licenses and the need to amortize them.

    But the productiveness of Indesign versus its price where awesome, and almost all of those companies gave the chance to Adobe's application. The advantages of the Adobe's suite were impressive as a cheaper inversion. Indesign could export to PDF without the tedious task of first going through "printing" postscript and this, with the arrival of CTP and the updates of RIP machines which allows to import such files, were decisive in the host by the production and prepress departments.

    Historically, there are some agencies which still use Quark in their workflow... But I think it's only an historically matter: So with Freehand and Illustrator.
    Sometimes I have to work with Quark or Freehand. That's because my clients are still using those apps.

    In fact, you must decide by yourself which is the application that better fits your needs and which is more comfortable for you in your daily tasks.

    Cheers!

    Indesign for me

    I have worked with QX 3.32, 4, 5, 6, 7 and with Indesign 1-5.5. And my verdict is that Indesign is more productive, at least for me. I can do the job much faster with Indesign. Maybe it's because I learned all the shortcuts in Indesign.

    If based purely on function comparison,this is more of a philosophical question. If you really have to get work done, nothing beats a workflow of nondestructive correction layers in Photoshop on RGB images in .PSD format, with realtime update in Indesign and conversion to the desired output color space only on export.

    Quark was the best up until 5.0 after that I believe they broke the program. I have been using InDesign ever since.

    InDesign, since version 1.0... despite all its lacks, I found it already better than Quark!

    But I still use Quark when my customers give me Quark native files. So, whatever the one I prefer, I'm still obliged to have and maintain up-to-date both softwares: cost me almost the double!!!

    (I tried opening Quark 3.x and 4.x files in InDesign... works, but it's not the best solution!
    Markzware Q2ID converter could be a solution, but as good is this company in making converters, and as good are their products, I'm not 100% confident.)
