Somewhere else. I'm not travelling. Just trying to do my job. Holidays are over :-)Though I'll try to find a classy set of colours (of mines) next when I'll find some free time.

QuarkXPress 8: Creating a custom color scheme (Easter Egg)

Thanks Matthias, I was looking for this old theme. The fonts of the UI in the tool box at the bottom of the screen is back to normal too ("normal" meaning back to the size it was in Quark 7 and lower).

Yeah, I think this should be an option in the Quark Preferences, so that the user can easily change it.

Sorry to dig up this old thread, but does this trick work with Quark 9?

Hi fb_eye,
no, it unfortunately doesn't and also won't with QuarkXPress 10, as we ported the UI libraries to Cocoa.
That said, we will put it on our roadmap. And I might have a new Easter Egg for you with v10 regarding shortcut keys.
Regards

Hi all,
please note that custom color schemes are a feature of QuarkXPress 10.1 on OS X now. So no need to use an Easter Egg, you can change all UI colors in preferences.
