Hi Shane,

With testing QuarkXPress 7 release on Windows XP, Mac OS X (PowerPC and Universal (Beta)) i cannot agree with this statement from Galen Gruman. Importing of pictures, full previews of TIFF and EPS, layouting, zooming, scrolling, these every day tasks all feel very fast (still faster than Indesign CS2, except calculation of High resolutin previews), especially in the Universal version on Intel Macs. And this is although the quality of display (anti aliased text and graphics) is much improved and text even looks better than in Indesign CS2.
Text reflow seems to have performance issues, that's correct. I guess this is because of the new Unicode support.

best regards
