By procuring one of the editions of MarkStein Publisher, you have access to a layout software with which you can easily create your own magazines, books, brochures and flyers. MarkStein Publisher is characterized by its ease of use, despite its large scope of performance. Even newcomers can work productively in just a short period of time, with the supplied design patterns providing both help and inspiration.
MarkStein Publisher differs from classic desktop publishing (DTP) programs, such as Adobe InDesign and Quark XPress, in its innovative interface concept with panels and inspectors, which considerably simplify work. All essential design settings are not located in hidden submenus, but in clearly arranged inspectors. This provides a better overview and leads to faster results.
The program interface can also be adapted to your preferences with many options. For example, you can freely select the color of the tools and toolbars, or set a bright or dark overall image of the software.
The free basic version, MarkStein Publisher Standard Edition, allows private users to create, print and output publications as e-books. The paid version, MarkStein Publisher Professional Edition, is very inexpensive compared to common DTP programs, and also comes equipped with integrated PDF functions for the output and placement of PDF files as per the industry standard.
The MarkStein Publisher Workgroup Edition version is aimed at small publishers and corporate workgroups. This version offers additional functions for collaboration between graphic artists and copywriters, as well as for exporting to digital media.
