The new 14.3 release introduces a range of usability updates that span the entire platform, as content development teams will benefit from more new functionality that improves ease-of-use and boosts productivity. These include time saving, editing and saving improvements, major enhancements to copy-and-paste, new and intuitive content structuring functionality, and additional features such as responsive pop-ups and large table handling. “The biggest driver behind our continuous updates to the Quark Content Automation Platform is helping our customers work as efficiently as possible,” said Chris Hickey, Quark CEO. “The many updates in the 14.3 release improve how content teams across marketing, sales, HR, legal, operations and other departments create, edit and update content. With better content processes, these teams can better serve their customers, partners and employees.”
Whether creating new content, updating existing content or collaborating on content across departments, the 14.3 release of the Quark Content Automation Platform “will improve how teams develop business-critical content,” the company added. The release also includes dozens of new customer-requested features and functionality that fall into major categories including:
• Enhanced editing and saving. New functionality takes the guesswork out of daily content editing and saving. From new spellcheck functionality and periodic local saves, to document history snapshots and error recovery, content teams will not lose content and – all changes will be saved and tracked.
• Major enhancements to copy/paste. Copy-and-paste is a critical function of day-to-day authoring processes. New functionality improves how to copy and paste footnotes and endnotes, track changes, comments and more.
• Intuitive content structuring. It’ now easier to move and restructure content within a Quark Author document. To add sections before and after existing sections – or change the hierarchy of sections of a document – users simply click on the section and choose from a menu of options.
