Re: How do I automate some functionalities ? or do I need Ky

Also check out Martin Turner's YouTube video series that covers much of Quark 2017/2018. I think there are a couple in there that illustrate how to use Content Variables and Automated Numbering. Also look at using the Books feature to manage each lesson as a "book chapter"; that should make it easie...

Re: Border Tab in Measurement Panel not showing quarkxpress2

I'm running 10.11 with Quark 2018 with no problems. If your machine and other software will allow, go ahead and consider updating the OS.

Re: Document text highlighting issues

Not being a user of Scribus or anything similar, I can't offer any help for #2, but if you haven't already, check the Facebook group for Quark; plenty of Windows users there that I'm sure could help on #1. I'm on a Mac and the text highlight color is controlled by the system and thus set from the Sy...

Re: Select to Next Tab

Perhaps exploring the possibility of using Conditional Styles to achieve this? Depends on the complexity of your layout and how it runs, but might be worth a look.

Re: Numbering in Quark

Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 4.25.08 PM.png Try this. I was dubious at first but bought it a couple of years ago. To my knowledge it has not been updated since I bought it, but still works on my system, no problems. A great deal of flexibility to it. I use it mainly to do numbering of digital raffle-s...

Re: Decrease page size for project

Maybe check for stray items (unused text/image boxes) appearing on page 1? Your error message is quote as specific to page 1, but you might also check your master pages as well.

If that doesn't help, maybe export a new copy of the file (File/Export/Layout as Project…) and try again.

Good luck.

Re: Drag Copy - item shifts

Sorry to report that I could not duplicate your problem. Typically I use the Dynamic guides and have snap to guide turned on, and that keeps the y coordinate exactly the same, but even with it off, using the option-command drag, I get the same measurement across the axis in question. May be a bug th...

Re: Fill in blanks on forms

BP, I make a few forms myself, and I've noticed this problem as well. No solution that I've found, either. You may have noticed this as well, but it is also a good idea to check the "fill" character field; it accepts up to two characters and I've found that it is sometimes difficult to see if there ...

Custom Page Size Enhancements

I like that we can now create our own list of custom page sizes, but how about a couple of simple enhancements: I'd like to be able to reorder the list within the Custom Page Size dialog box; just a simple drag with the mouse, much as iOS allows you to rearrange lists by tapping and dragging to the ...

Re: No composition zone import possible?

I'm not a heavy user of composition zones, and I can't tell from your post if you had picked up on the new way of managing zones or not. It took me a lot of digging around to discover that you now go to the Utilities Menu>Job Jackets Manager…>Resources>External Resources[ . There are some other trea...
