Aligning stroked text

I was delighted when stroked text was introduced with Q2017 (decades late by the way!). However, I don't like the way the stroke width setting currently works. As the stroke width is increased it overlaps the fill area and starts to rapidly reduce the visibility of the filled character. It would be ...

Re: Building the wishlist

I would like to see a Text Style sometimes called Stroked Text. This creates a line or stroke around the normal (filled) shape of the type. If the stroke is white it helps the text stand out on a coloured background. The key thing is that the text can still be edited. In other words the text should ...

Re: Find/Change window

I had been closing the Find/Change window prior to quitting Q2016, but the window kept opening automatically when I ran Q2016 again. However, Matthias's suggestion worked (I deleted my Preference files), and now all is well. Yes, Q2016 always crashes for me if I click characters in the PopChar windo...

Re: Find/Change window

Thanks, Matthias, 1. Where do I find the Preferences file please? 2. Regarding PopChar X. I have had a response from PopChar and they confirm the behaviour I describe. See quote below... ------------------------------- Thanks. I could reproduce the problem, but there is no way we can work around thi...

Find/Change window

1. The Find/Change window opens automatically every time I run Q2016. Is there a way of turning off this behaviour? I can't see anything in Preferences or the Windows menu. 2. When I try to use PopChar X to enter a character in either the Find or Change to slot, it crashes Quark completely. (I have ...

Re: Building the wishlist

Sorry I don't use Facebook, so am asking here...

Please offer a 'Fill Frame Proportionally' option as discussed in the Suggestion Box topic of that name which I first made a year ago. See also my response to that topic earlier today.

Thanks.

Re: Fill Frame Proportionally

Unless I have misunderstood you, A. Palaniappan, your suggestion does not give the fill option I am looking for. I do NOT want to stretch an image in one direction to make it fit because this distorts the proportions of the image. Distorting a photo can rarely be an acceptable option. I want the ima...

Re: Photos in Quark 2015

Hi I too have this problem - even when the preference box is set to 'Quality'. The image is definitely still displayed in low resolution even with a high quality image source. In earlier versions (Q9?) when a document was loaded it was possible to select Item > Preview Resolution > Low or Full Resol...

Re: How do I delete PDF Export Options?

Go to Edit > Output styles..

Select style you wish to delete. Click Delete.

This stumped me for ages too. It's not intuitive.
