Re: [BKARTS] Text software



Printing prepress departments prefer Quark.  They do not appreciate any
text files such in Word, CorelDraw or Publisher format.  And from what I
understand, InDesign still has a few bugs. Most printing companies work
with Macs and the other programs cause major headaches.

I have heard some great things about InDesign. Personally, I'm a little
weird, I use Corel Draw for all my book layouts.
