Meadows Publishing Solutions: DesignMerge®

Workflow Solutions


DesignMerge is an XTension to QuarkXPress and requires QuarkXPress to be resident. DesignMerge supports QuarkXPress in both Macintosh and Windows environments and can output to Canon imagePRESS devices in both PostScript and PPML.

DesignMerge supports QuarkXPress versions 4.11, 5.01, and 6.5 for Macintosh, and versions 4.1 and 5.01 for Windows. PPML workflow requires the DesignMerge PPML driver and a ColorPASS server.

DesignMerge has been tested in conjunction with a Canon imagePRESS and a ColorPASS server and has been awarded the Canon Compatible logo. For more information about the testing process and results, the Compatibility Report for Meadows Publishing Solutions can be downloaded at
