QXP 2015: Some additional minor changes

Postby PetarMakedonecot » 27 May 2015, 04:50

1. Under "Edit > Underline Styles... > Underline Attributes", "Line Styles" must be added.
2. Under "Dashes & Stripes...": names "Dotted" and "Dotted 2" should be replaced with "Dashed" and "Dashed 2", respectively.
3. When creating frames "Line Width" and its' attributes should be added into "Measurements Palette".
4. It would be much easier to manage "Character Styles" and "Paragraph Styles" if they are into "Measurements Palette" under "Character Attributes" and "Paragraph Attributes", respectively.
5. "Classic" tab under "Measurements Palette" should be renamed to "Frames" and everything right to "Flip Horizontal/Vertical" icons should be removed, because it is allready into "Character Attributes" and "Paragraph Attributes".

6. Under "Guides > Create Grid...", a "Center: Page Boudary / Margins" should be added just as it is under "Guides > Create Rows and Columns...".

You can put there "Super Step and Repeat", "Scale", arranging objects (Forward, to Front...), "Shape", "Content"...

7. There is no "Flip Horizontal/Vertical" tools for Bezier drawn objects, freehand drawn objects, text boxes, rectangulars, ovals, lines, tables -- in the "Classic" tab of the "Measurements Palette".

Hi Petar,

Select the bezier box -> Go to Item menu -> Flip Shape -> Horizontally/ Vertically. You can use these options to flip any object.

I know that, but you didn't read the whole post. There is no "Flip..." in the Measurements palette.

8. Creating of user-defined measurement units.
9. Allowing font size to be in other measurement unit than points.

You can do. Just write 10mm and Quark is converting to 28,346 pts :)

That is a conversion directly in font size box and I know that. But I want to choose/change it in Preferences.
