There isn't much I miss about Quark Xpress, but I did prefer the way Quark handled text wrap.
In both apps, you select an object and set the text wrap. By default, InDesign applies the text wrap to all objects, regardless of whether the object is on the top or bottom. Quark only applied text wrap to text frames underneath the text wrap.
To turn on Quark-style text wrap in InDesign, go to InDesign > Preferences > Composition... and select "Text Wrap Only Affects Text Beneath." Now text wrap will only impact the frames underneath.
