Quark, Macromedia Launch Bundle Offer

Freehand, QuarkXPress available together for $999 By Dave Nagel
Quark and Macromedia have launched a new bundle offer. The deal includes QuarkXPress 6 and Freehand MX together for $999. The offer is valid through March 2004.

QuarkXPress 6, of course, is Quark's flagship page-layout application for Mac OS X and WIndows. The latest release adds a number of new features, including workflow, production and output enhancements. It normally sells for $1,045. Freehand MX is Macromedia's vector illustration tool, which includes the ability to extrude 2D objects in simulated 3D space with complete editability and options for extrusion methods. It can also use paths to shape the extrusion. And its Eraser tool allows users to erase portions of vector objects, similar to the way eraser tools work in raster imaging programs. For effects, Freehand MX includes a Multiple Attributes feature, which allows an unlimited number of attributes to be applied to a single object, such as transparency, strokes, fills and effects. It normally sells for $399.


The QUarkXPress 6/Freehand MX bundle is available now through March 31 for Mac OS X and Windows for $999. For more information, visit http://www.macromedia.com/software/freehand/.
