Create one PDF out of a book

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 17 Feb 2015, 06:31

Hi all,

have a QuarkXPress book with several chapters (QuarkXPress documents) and want to create one combined PDF file?

As we do get this asked frequently, just to reiterate, QuarkXPress 10 (and therefore also QX2015) offer the ability to create a book and then create one single PDF file, containing all chapters.

That's even possible when the chapters (QuarkXPress files) have different page sizes.

And that's possible using all layouts in a single QuarkXPress document.

Here's how the book palette looks like in QuarkXPress 2015:

Hi Matthias.

I have tried this, and although this work with no problems, the table of contents I have built (and the bookmarks) all point to page 1.

Could you advise how I get tem to look at their correct locations without having to update each individual bookmark please?

Kind regards, Wayne

Hi Wayne,

I just tried it in QuarkXPress 10.5 and it works for me.

Did you synchronize the List and style sheets? Does your list palette for the entire book already show page numbers incorrect?

Thanks
Matthias

Hi Matthias.
Thanks for the reply.
List and style sheets syncronised although the list palette for the book does not display page numbers.
I'm using version 10.2. Would that make a difference?

Hi Wayne,

maybe. Please update for free to 10.5 and try again.

Thanks
Matthias
