Just a quick note to say how great the Quark training was – the trainer knew the package well and was able to cover all the areas that Manana and I specifically wanted to do. We are now able to create the documents in a more efficient manner and also in the correct way. I have found in the past that users of a particular software are much better tutors and this was demonstrated over the past couple of days
