Efficiently edit text with just a drag (5/6/7)

  • Like with most word processing applications, QuarkXPress enables you to drag and drop text to make editing text a little more efficient.
  • To activate this feature:
    • 1. Choose QuarkXPress > Preferences (Edit > Preferences > Preferences in version 5).
    • 2. Select the Drag And Drop Text check box on the Interactive panel.
    • 3. Click OK.
  • You can begin to cut and paste text using just the mouse—no menu or keyboard commands required.
  • To copy and paste without using key commands or the menu bar:
    1. Select the text (including any needed space characters), and then click and drag the selection to its new location.
    2. Release your mouse button only when the insertion point is properly positioned.
  • You can also copy and paste text this way by holding down [shift] as you drag and drop. You may find this feature very useful for text editing, or you may find it a real nuisance. Try it and decide for yourself.

Take a new direction with your tables (5/6/7)

  • Sometimes you need to convert a horizontal table to a vertical table or vice versa. Rather than deleting cells, adding cells, copying data, pasting data, and deleting the old data after you move it to the new location, there’s an easier way. QuarkXPress has options in the Convert Text To Table dialog box that make switching your table direction a snap.
  • To change your table’s direction:
    • 1. Select the table with the Item tool.
    • 2. Choose Item > Table > Convert Table To Text and click OK.
    • 3. Highlight the text with the Content tool.
    • 4. Choose Item > Convert Text To Table to display the Convert Text To Table dialog box.
    • 5. Select Top Down, Left To Right instead of Left To Right, Top Down in the Cell Fill Order pop-up menu.
    • 6. Click OK and your table is reoriented.
  • If the resulting table has extra cells than the original table had, the original table probably contained returns in the text. Returns will add extra cell to the resulting table.

Prevent pictures from becoming missing links (5/5/7)

  • If you’re like most designers, organization isn’t your forté. Fortunately, QuarkXPress has several features to help you manage all the files related to your document. However, there are still things you should avoid doing.
    • Don’t rename picture files after you import them.
    • Try not to move the original files of imported pictures; instead, keep them in one folder.
    • Above all, don’t throw away any of the original picture files thinking that you don’t need them after you’ve imported them into QuarkXPress.

Avoid adding too much space between paragraphs (5/6/7)

  • When making paragraph styles in the Paragraph Attributes dialog box to separate paragraphs, you may be tempted to add unwanted space between your paragraphs and not even know it.
  • To access the Paragraph Attributes dialog box:
    • 1. Choose Edit > Style Sheets.
    • 2. Select a paragraph style sheet.
    • 3. Click Edit to display the Paragraph Attributes dialog box.
    • 4. Click on the Formats tab.
  • Here you can either numerically add Space Before or Space After. If you add space to both, you’ll end up with undesired space between the paragraphs. Also, keep in mind that text boxes already have extra space at the bottom when they’re top aligned, so you may want to use Space After instead of Space Before.

Control your picture, not its box, when rotating (5/6)

  • Do you ever find yourself rotating the wrong thing when working with a picture box? To rotate the picture and not the picture box, choose the Item tool or Content tool, and then click on the picture. In the Rotation Of Picture text box on the right side of the Measurements palette, enter a negative value to rotate the picture clockwise. To rotate counterclockwise, enter a positive value.

Don't let your facing-pages get lost in the shuffle (5/6/7)

  • When adding pages to a facing-pages document in the Page Layout palette, make sure to pay close attention to the mouse pointer. Don’t release your mouse if one of the arrow icons, such as the right-facing arrow icon, displays—-this will only reshuffle the existing pages, not add to the spread.

Revitalize your InDesign layouts with unique page numbering schemes

  • Finding new ways to make your layouts stand out can be a challenge. One thing that many designers overlook is the opportunity to uniquely number pages. Instead of just placing numbers on a page with little or no thought, we'll show you how you can use them to liven up the pages in your next InDesign publication.
  • To create innovative page-numbering schemes in InDesign, we'll show you how to:
    • Create master page items that enable you to automatically number pages.
    • Enhance page numbers with decorative artwork you can easily create using glyphs.
    • Apply master pages to document pages to ensure accurate page numbering.

Produce action-packed pages with the use of custom-made filmstrip frames

  • When InDesign's default framing options just won't do, you can always create custom frames for your images. InDesign offers many tools for that purpose. And to put them to good use, we'll show you how to create a custom frame that resembles a piece of 35mm film.
  • To add this custom frame to your collection, we'll:
    • Use the Rectangle and Scale tools to draw a group of frames.
    • Create a uniquely shaped frame using the Pathfinder command.
    • Save the custom frame as a snippet or a library item for future use.

    Add color quickly to your table components (6/7)

    • Here's a quick-and-easy way to apply color to the various components of a table. To do so, click on the table with the Content tool.Next, drag a color from the Colors palette and drop it over a cell, gridline, or border line.Then, press the [command] key ([Ctrl] key in Windows) to apply the color to multiple components as you drag over them.
    • The color’s Shade percent will be the same as was applied to the component last. However, you can reset the Shade value to 100%. To do so, press the [option] key ([Alt] key in Windows) as you apply the color to a component.Then,press the [command][option] keys ([Ctrl][Alt] keys in Windows) to color multiple components and reset the Shade value.

    Create great looking drop caps with style

    • There are a few ways you can create drop caps in InDesign, but only one way gives you both form and function. We'll show you how to create attractive drop caps without losing the functionality paragraph and character styles provide.
    • To design a professional quality drop cap in InDesign, we'll:
      • Create a character style that defines the formatting of the drop cap.
      • Define a paragraph style that includes the character style attributes of the drop cap.
      • Apply the paragraph style and offset the drop cap with a hanging indent.

    View a full-resolution preview without pixelation (6/7)

    • QuarkXPress 6 allows you to use high-quality graphics and preview them at the full resolution of the image file. To take advantage of the full-resolution preview for specific pictures, click on the Item tool or Content tool and select the picture that you want displayed at full resolution. To select multiple pictures, [shift]-click on them. Next, choose Item > Preview Resolution > Full Resolution. Wait a few seconds for QuarkXPress to adjust to the new setting. Once loading is complete, you can zoom in on the high-quality graphic without viewing a pixelated image.

    Blend text layers into a jellylike substance

    • It's easy enough to apply a “gel” effect to text in Adobe Photoshop, but there's a downside--Photoshop rasterizes text, which is great for the web, but not so great for print. We'll show you how to create a gel effect in InDesign that preserves the natural vector characteristics of text for superior print results.
    • To embellish text with a gel effect, we'll:
      • Type and format text to create the basis for this technique.
      • Duplicate layers so that we can build on the effect.
      • Apply transparency effects to soften edges and blend layers.

    Tip: The rule about hairline rules (5/6/7)

    • While hairline rules may look great onscreen and okay printed on a desktop printer, they probably won’t look so good when printed on an output device that prints over 300 dpi. For this reason, it’s best to avoid using the Hairline option (defined as a zero width line) when drawing rules or frames in QuarkXPress. To access the Hairline option, open the Modify dialog box (Item > Modify), click on the Line tab if you have a line selected, or the Frame tab if you have a frame selected. Then, click on the Line Width pop-up menu. To ensure your rules print on any device, always define their Line Width as no less than 0.25 points.

    Tip: Deleting ruler guides in a flash (6/7)

    • If you’ve added horizontal or vertical ruler guides on your page and want to quickly get rid of them, here's an easy shortcut. To delete all horizontal ruler guides from your page, press the [option] key ([Alt] key in Windows) while clicking the horizontal ruler at the top. Do the same for vertical guides, but click the vertical ruler while pressing the [option] key ([Alt] in Windows).

    Tip: Know the differences between creating a New Document and New Project (5/6/7)

    • To create a new project, simply choose File > New > Project to open the New Project dialog box. The New Project dialog box resembles the old New Document dialog box, but with two important differences:
      • The Layout Name text box lets you enter a name for the project’s first layout. Don’t confuse this with the name of the project if you’re creating a project with multiple layouts. Try to name the first layout after the first piece you’ll create. For example, your layout might be called Invitation, while the project is called PartySupplies.
      • The Layout Type pop-up menu lets you specify whether the layout is intended for print or the web.

    Tip: Create metatag sets only once, but use them frequently (5/6/7)

    • The meta tags you create in a QuarkXPress web document are stored in sets. Once you create a meta tag set, you can assign it to other pages in the same document or append the set in other web documents. To create a meta tag set for the active page in your open web document, choose Edit > Meta Tags to open the Meta Tags dialog box. To create a new meta tag set, click the New button. In the resulting Edit Meta Tag Set dialog box, enter a name for the set. Then, click the Add button.
    • If you create a meta tag set when you have no QuarkXPress documents open, it becomes the default set for future web documents. This eliminates the need for you to repeatedly append a frequently used meta tag set.

    Tip: Evenly distribute your items (5/6/7)

    • The Distribute Evenly option in the Space/Align dialog box is useful when you need to evenly distribute two items. When you select this option in the Horizontal area, the left- and rightmost items stay put and the items in between move. When you select this option in the Vertical area, the top- and bottommost items stay put and the items in between move. You can achieve different results depending on which Between option you choose in either area.

    Tip: Avoid the facing page shuffle (5/6/7)

    • To avoid the workaround for starting on a left-facing page and to prevent the negative effects of shuffling, some graphic designers never use facing page documents. Instead of selecting Facing Pages in the New Document dialog box, they simply create one master page for right-facing pages and one for left-facing pages. Then, they use the Document Layout palette to place pages side by side.

    Tip: Quickly drag and drop colors on your objects (6/7)

    • To speed up your production time, you can drag and drop a color swatch from the Colors palette onto your QuarkXPress-drawn objects. Even better, you don’t have to first select your object to apply the color.
    • To try it, draw a few objects on a document page. Keep one object selected so you can access the Colors palette. Next, drag a color swatch from the Colors palette over your objects. As you drag across your objects, their background colors change to the color you selected. However, the color won’t “stick” unless you drop, or release, the color on an object. If you want to apply the color to several objects at once, you can press the [command] key ([Ctrl] key in Windows) as you drag the color swatch across your objects. This makes the color stick without having to release the mouse. You can also use this trick to change the color of text boxes, but it won’t change the color of the text itself.

    Tip: Use anchored items to add versatility to your designs

    • An anchored item, or inline graphic, is one that you can paste, or anchor, onto a text box or text path. These items include a line, picture box, text path, text box, table, group, and shapes. Anchored items function like characters in that they move with the text if it reflows. They also remain totally editable.
    • To anchor an item to text, choose the Item tool from the toolbox. Then, select the item to be anchored, such as an interesting graphic. Then, choose [command]C ([Ctrl]C in Windows) or cut it by choosing [command]X ([Ctrl]X in Windows). Next, choose the Content tool from the toolbox and click in a text box or on a text path to create an insertion point. Finally, choose [command]V ([Ctrl]V in Windows) to paste the graphic. Your object is inserted and is now anchored on the text path.
    • You can do almost anything to an anchored item. You can reshape it, rotate it, scale it, add a frame to it, or color it. You can also change its contents, convert its shape, or apply a Runaround value to it. They're very versatile and they add a nice interesting element to your text.

    Tip: Prevent pictures from becoming missing links

    • If you’re like most designers, organization isn’t your forté. Fortunately, QuarkXPress has several features to help you manage all the files related to your document. However, there are still things you should avoid doing.
    • Don’t rename picture files after you import them.
    • Try not to move the original files of imported pictures; instead, keep them in one folder.
    • Above all, don’t throw away any of the original picture files thinking that you don’t need them after you’ve imported them into QuarkXPress

    Tip: Quickly double your magnification using keystrokes

    • For reading, editing, checking alignments, or adjusting small details in QuarkXPress, zooming into 200% is essential. The quicker you can do it the better.
    • Many people are accustom to using [command]+ or – ([Ctrl]+ or – in Windows) to zoom in and out of their projects. This method zooms in increments of 25% and only on selected items. If you have a large item, it will zoom to the center of that item, which may not be the location you desire to view. This creates extra repositioning and using the key command four times as much. Use our method for the most efficient and accurate way to zoom from 100% to 200%.
    • To quickly shift from 100% to 200% view:
      • 1.Point your mouse to the place you want to zoom to.
      • 2.Press [command][option]-click ([Ctrl][Alt]-click in Windows) to toggle back and forth between 100% and 200%.

    Tip: Scale your picture to fit the box proportionately

    • Here's a couple of ways to fit a picture to its box while maintaining its proportions in QuarkXPress 5 and later. It can be done using the Style menu or using key commands.
    • To proportionately fit a picture to its box using the Style menu:
      • 1.Select the Item or Content tool.
      • 2.Click the picture.
      • 3.Choose Style > Fit Picture To Box.
    • To proportionately fit a picture to its box using the key commands:
      • 1.Select the Item or Content tool.
      • 2.Click the picture.
      • 3.Press [command][option][shift]F ([Ctrl][Alt][Shift]F in Windows).
    • This key command method also works for QuarkXPress 4.11. If you find the need to squeeze a picture into its box, there are key commands for that also. The commands stretch the image into the picture box without maintaining its original proportions. The keystrokes are [command][shift]F ([Ctrl][Shift]F in Windows).

    Tip: Save time using the PSD Import to adjust image tints (6.5/7)

    • Do you want to eliminate the time-consuming task of going from QuarkXPress to Photoshop, and back to QuarkXPress to re-import the image? Instead, adjust the tint right in QuarkXPress. You can adjust the overall tint setting of a selected channel, such as a spot ink channel in a Photoshop duotone, using the PSD Import XTension.
    • To adjust the tint of a PSD in QuarkXPress:
      • 1. Display the Channels pane of the PSD Import palette (Window > Show PSD Import).
      • 2. Click on the spot color channel to highlight it.
      • 3. Select Channel Options from the palette menu (the same as you would when using Photoshop).
      • 4. Adjust the Shade percentage. The default is 100%.
      • 5. Click OK

    Tip: Simplify tasks in QuarkXPress with these 3 key commands (5/6/7)

    • When using QuarkXPress on a Mac, here are three shortcut keys that will dramatically speed up your design time when used in combination. Hold down [shift], [option], and [command] and then do one of the following:
      • Click on a tool to lock it. By locking it, you prevent it from returning to a default tool after using it.
      • Repeatedly click on layers of objects and/or text boxes to cycle through what’s below the top box.
      • Drag your picture box handles to change its size and stay in proportion with content.

    Tip: Setting up styles without using styles (5/6/7)

    • Once you've set up local text formatting on a block of text and you need to use it repeatedly in your document but you don't want to create a style sheet, you can save a lot of time simply by copying only one or two characters and pasting them at the location where you want to repeat the style. Then, highlight the one or two characters and type in the new text. The formatting is preserved. This will save the repetitious mouse clicks required to set create a new style each time.

    Tip: Create metatag sets only once, but use them frequently (5/6/7)

    • The meta tags you create in a QuarkXPress web document are stored in sets. Once you create a meta tag set, you can assign it to other pages in the same document or append the set in other web documents. To create a meta tag set for the active page in your open web document, choose Edit > Meta Tags to open the Meta Tags dialog box. To create a new meta tag set, click the New button. In the resulting Edit Meta Tag Set dialog box, enter a name for the set. Then, click the Add button.
    • If you create a meta tag set when you have no QuarkXPress documents open, it becomes the default set for future web documents. This eliminates the need for you to repeatedly append a frequently used meta tag set.

    Tip: Control your picture, not its box, when rotating (5/6)

    • Do you ever find yourself rotating the wrong thing when working with a picture box? To rotate the picture and not the picture box, choose the Item tool or Content tool, and then click on the picture. In the Rotation Of Picture text box on the right side of the Measurements palette, enter a negative value to rotate the picture clockwise. To rotate counterclockwise, enter a positive value.

    Tip: Don't let your facing-pages get lost in the shuffle (5/6)

    • When adding pages to a facing-pages document in the Page Layout palette, make sure to pay close attention to the mouse pointer. Don’t release your mouse if one of the arrow icons, such as the right-facing arrow icon, displays—-this will only reshuffle the existing pages, not add to the spread.

    Tip: Avoid hand collating your projects (5/6)

    • To print two or more copies of a layout so that they output with all pages in the correct order for binding, you must collate them. If you print five copies of a layout and select the Collate check box, QuarkXPress prints one complete copy of the layout before beginning the second copy. If Collate is deselected, QuarkXPress prints five copies of the first page, then five copies of the second page, and so on. You’ll then have to manually place them in sequential order, which can be time-consuming or cost you extra money if you have the print vendor do it.
    • To collate your project, choose File > Page Setup to display the Print dialog box. Next, type the number of copies that you wish to print in the Copies text box. Then, click on the Layout tab and select the Collate check box. Finally, click Print when finished.
    • When you select the Collate check box, QuarkXPress sends a layout to the printer as though you were executing more than one Print command, so it will take longer to print than noncollated copies.

    Tip: Reusing custom colors in all your documents (5/6)

    • When you create colors in an open QuarkXPress document, they’re saved in that document only. Of course, you can always append colors from one QuarkXPress document into another via the Colors dialog box (Edit menu). If you consistently use the same custom colors, it might be easier to make them default colors. To do this, create your colors while no document is open. This will add them to the default colors in the Colors palette in all future QuarkXPress documents, as long as your Preferences file remains the same.

    Tip: Reusing custom colors in all your documents (5/6)

    Tip: Add color quickly to your table components (6)

    • Here's a quick-and-easy way to apply color to the various components of a table. To do so, click on the table with the Content tool. Next, drag a color from the Colors palette and drop it over a cell, gridline, or border line. Then, press the [command] key ([Ctrl] key in Windows) to apply the color to multiple components as you drag over them.
    • The color’s Shade percent will be the same as was applied to the component last. However, you can reset the Shade value to 100%. To do so, press the [option] key ([Alt] key in Windows) as you apply the color to a component. Then,press the [command][option] keys ([Ctrl][Alt] keys in Windows) to color multiple components and reset the Shade value.

    Tip: View a full-resolution preview without pixelation (6)

    • QuarkXPress 6 allows you to use high-quality graphics and preview them at the full resolution of the image file. To take advantage of the full-resolution preview for specific pictures, click on the Item tool or Content tool and select the picture that you want displayed at full resolution. To select multiple pictures, [shift]-click on them. Next, choose Item > Preview Resolution > Full Resolution. Wait a few seconds for QuarkXPress to adjust to the new setting. Once loading is complete, you can zoom in on the high-quality graphic without viewing a pixelated image.

    Tip: Set your default font to the one you use most often (5/6)

    • Helvetica is the default font for a text box or line when the Content tool is selected. However, most of us don’t use Helvetica on a regular basis for text. It seems like Times would have made more sense for QuarkXPress to have as the set default.
    • You can change the default font very easily in the Character Style Sheet dialog box. To do so, just launch QuarkXPress, but don’t create or open a new document yet. Choose Edit > Style Sheets to open the Default Style Sheets dialog box. Then, select the character’s Normal style and click Edit. From the Edit Character Style Sheet dialog box, select the font you want as the default from the Font pop-up menu. Click OK, and then click Save. Now, whenever you click on a text box with the Content tool, your default font will be the font you selected, until you decide to change it again.

    Tip: The rule about hairline rules (5/6)

    • While hairline rules may look great onscreen and okay printed on a desktop printer, they probably won’t look so good when printed on an output device that prints over 300 dpi. For this reason, it’s best to avoid using the Hairline option (defined as a zero width line) when drawing rules or frames in QuarkXPress. To access the Hairline option, open the Modify dialog box (Item > Modify), click on the Line tab if you have a line selected, or the Frame tab if you have a frame selected. Then, click on the Line Width pop-up menu. To ensure your rules print on any device, always define their Line Width as no less than 0.25 points.

    Tip: Create metatag sets only once, but use them frequently (5/6)

    • The meta tags you create in a QuarkXPress web document are stored in sets. Once you create a meta tag set, you can assign it to other pages in the same document or append the set in other web documents.

    Tip: Evenly distribute your items (5/6)
    • The Distribute Evenly option in the Space/Align dialog box is useful when you need to evenly distribute two items. When you select this option in the Horizontal area, the left- and rightmost items stay put and the items in between move. When you select this option in the Vertical area, the top- and bottommost items stay put and the items in between move. You can achieve different results depending on which Between option you choose in either area.

    Tip: Consider this when scanning a bitmap image (5/6)

    • An important thing to remember about a bitmap image is that enlarging it above 100% in QuarkXPress diminishes its resolution and output quality, while shrinking it increases its resolution and output quality. If you're scanning an image to be used as a bitmap you should plan ahead and save it at the appropriate resolution and size.

    Tip: Use a checklist to verify picture status in QuarkXPress (5/6.1)

    • A common caveat in most print jobs is due to improperly prepared image files.  To avoid this and other problems, you should run the Collect For Output command prior to submitting a layout to a service bureau for printing.  In addition to collecting all the files necessary for output in one folder, this command creates a report that lists layout attributes, such as fonts, colors, trapping, and so fourth.  In the report, you can view information about placed images, such as their file format, resolution, and color space.  But don't rely on the Collect For Output command entirely--there are several things QuarkXPress doesn't report that could cause trouble on the RIP.  For example, placed raster TIFF files should be sized at 100% their size to preserve their resolution, and text in vector EPS files should be converted to outlines to avoid font defaults.  Also pay attention to the way images are positioned in picture boxes--rotated or skewed images may print with a moire pattern, not to mention slow down the RIP.  It's also a good idea to label FPO (for placement only) images in the file (on a separate layer) and on the hard copies to ensure the high-resolution versions are swapped during processing.

    Tip: Getting black to look better when output from QuarkXPress (4/5/6.1)

    • The black in your Colors palette is defined as 100 percent black ink.  This black can print dull and semitransparent.  It isn't noticeable in text and small shapes and lines, but when you have a large area of solid black, a mix comprised of all four process-color inks looks much richer.  The suggested mix is 40% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, and 100% black.  Continue to use the default Black in your Colors palette for text and thin lines to prevent misregistration.

    Tip: Edit a picture's original file while in QuarkXPress (Mac 6.1)

    • Generally, you should edit pictures in their originating application as you may degrade their integrity editing them elsewhere.  In QuarkXPress 4 and 5, the Subscriber feature allowed you to double-click on a picture to open the original file in the application in which it was created (providing the application is installed).  In version 6.1, the Edit Original XTension has replaced the Subscriber feature.  When this XTension is installed and active, simply double-click on a picture with the Content tool and click the Edit Original button in the resulting dialog box.  You can also update a modified picture by clicking the Update button.  As long as the status of the picture isn't Missing, it will update automatically.  If the file can't be found, an alert displays the following message "The disk file for this picture does not exist or cannot be found."  Click Cancel or List Pictures to open the Missing/Modified Pictures dialog box, click Update to display the Find dialog box, locate the missing picture, and click Open to update the link.

    Tip: The return of our friend the martian (Mac 4/5/6.1)

    • The Alien Delete Easter egg in QuarkXPress 4 and 5 went MIA in version 6 but has returned in 6.1.  To have a close encounter of the alien kind, choose Fit In Window from the View menu and select a text or picture box (that you don't mind losing).  Then, press [command] [option] [shift] K ([Ctrl] [Alt] [Shift] K in Windows) and the box "melts."

    Tip: Prevent "File not found" errors from occurring (Mac 5/6)

    • You can easily save down a QuarkXPress 6 project to a QuarkXPress 5 document, but the way in which you name the file is very important.  If you name the document the same as the project, it may not open and you may get a "File not found" error-especially if the two files are stored in the same location.  To ensure that you'll be able to open a saved-down version of a QuarkXPress 6 project in QuarkXPress 5, you should rename the document or save it in another location.

    Tip: When not to use DeviceN as a color space in QuarkXPress (6/6.1)

    • DeviceN enables you to output spot-color blends and spot-colorized grayscale TIFF images from QuarkXPress but not from anywhere else.  For example, Adobe Illustrator can't parse QuarkXPress EPS files saved in the DeviceN color space.  If you need to output a QuarkXPress frile from another application, choose a CMYK color space instead.
