Quark has introduced platform-independent licenses for its flagship software program, meaning a single licence will ensure a copy will work on both MAC and PC. Jürgen Kurz, senior vice president of desktop products at Quark, says the move is part of the company’s aim to provide customers with the most efficient and effective way to use QuarkXPress.

“Creative minds should be free to design and innovate on any platform, and Quark is continuing to provide that freedom with our creative tools,” says Kurz.

Individual QuarkXPress users can now double-activate one license on different platforms at no additional cost, and customers can use the same QuarkXPress 7 license on both the Windows and Mac OS. In addition, previous versions of QuarkXPress can run under the same license when users are upgrading to QuarkXPress 7.

In connection with the change, separate part numbers for the Mac OS and Windows versions of QuarkXPress 7 and the part codes for platform cross-grades – changing from one platform to another – are no longer required and will be phased out. All orders will be fulfilled using a platform-independent validation code.
