CMYK colours changing in QXP 10

I must be missing something here - why are you putting RGB images into a doc if you're creating for output or repro in four-col process?

Importing Objects

Hello Lyndon, I always 'import' - cmd-E (assuming Mac) - never think to do it any other way, so I'm not clear on pros and cons of drag-and-drop, of what's causing your multiple boxes. As for moving objects and content... Having used older versions for so long, I'm still finding the tool functions in...

Tables and line segments

I usually get myself in real mess with the Tables feature - the work I do seldom involves extensive tables, so I've never used it often enough to become fluent with it. If it's just those 5 columns, I think I'd construct the table with the required cells, but then construct the outlines and rules as...

Quark 10 Picture boxes Disappear

Just to be clear - and I apologize if you already know this - when you restart the application it will create a new Prefs file if there isn't one there. It will have all the default settings, so you'll need to reset any custom ones you had set (for e.g.. tool functions, defaults for new docs). When ...

Keyboard shortcut for box content

Yes, I think you are right JM - it doesn't matter what I change the shortcut to, or which modifier key I use. When I first discovered this, the shortcut worked for picture boxes but not text boxes... very strange... but now not at all. I haven't yet tried trashing the prefs or any system-wide measur...

Keyboard shortcut for box content

I've used a number of custom keyboard shortcuts in previous versions of Quark, but have found a problem with one when set for Quark 9 it's for setting the box content to "None", which worked in v6 (and, I think, v4). The action works ok when selected from the Menu, but the keyboard shortcut (althoug...

page numbers appear but are not on master page

I'm not certain, but I think that changing the Delete/Keep changes settings for Master Pages will only affect subsequent actions - I don't imagine it can unwind and re-set revisions that have already been made proir to the doc being saved.

Split a text flow into separate boxes

Very sorry to hear that, Emma.
I've seen similar situations first-hand and know how unsettling and dis-spiriting they can be. Hope things work out ok for you, one way or another.

Box Underline Text

Jean-Marie - it took me ages to work out what was happening and I used to get very frustrated with paragraph rules! Mike - I don't think I've ever encountered that problem with the leading - ; I can't think what's happening there - I'll try to have a play with that later.The type will move, en masse...

Box Underline Text

Erik - in your example, is there a particular reason you used 'rule below'? Using 'rule above' would mean you could do without the baseline shift.
