Re: QuarkXPress 2016 has been unveiled

1. Most important: the modal box provides a clear and rational view settings for text or boxes, which allows to intelligently test the changes we want to do. For the user and the creator is an essential tool. Hi Arthur68, You can do the same using the measurement palette! Just use alt-enter after c...

Re: Font names

Hi Petar, yes, font naming is a difficult thing. I don’t think displaying the disk name would be a good idea, since these names are often not human-readable (cf. MinionPro-SemiboldCnItCapt.otf) or not clear enough (cf. BerliNovTexBolIta.otf for Berling Nova Text Bold Italic or GoudyStd.otf for Goudy...

Re: Font names

Hi Petar, renaming fonts isn’t just changing the disk names. Fonts do have several names: they have a name, a family name, a PostScript name, a complete name, a menu name, a FOND name, an OT font family name, an OT style name and a Mac name. (Did I forgot one?) Which one is displayed by QXP? Is ist ...

Re: Quark still ignores Word text boxes!!!

Hi Geir, well, I have to say: I do a lot of my typesetting work in Word. Cleaning up all the mess, authors and editors and translators are putting in—you will know all this (and learn tomorrow something new …). So I don’t have such problems. That’s my workflow in very short: Adding all the necessary...

Re: Fill Frame Proportionally

Hi inflector,

Thank you a lot for updating and sharing this script!

Re: export to pdf 4 pages, stuck

Hi Roger, Quark always exports only one page size. So if you export your layout as spreads, you will get a spread with a blank half for single sides (as your first and last). Two ways to solve this: 1 — Export your layout as single pages and use Acrobat to change the page display on opening — just l...

Re: Why the filename when exporting as picture has a "1" add

Hi Denis,

there are apps to rename files automatically, the one on my Mac is called Rename. They can make your day easier and less boring.

Re: Fill Frame Proportionally

As Ben said in the first post:
“Very often the size/proportions of a picture box are determined by the layout, so 'Scale Picture To Box' is no good because unless the photo and the picture box have the same proportions two sides of the box will not be filled.”

Re: Bug in "lines drag an copy"

Hi Rainer, 1. indeed! This must be a bug. 2. I can’t repeat your issue here. But yes, two lines (grouped or not) have different co-ordinates than the single lines selected alone. A single line coordinates are the middles of the endpoints, but the coordiantes of multiple lines selected together are a...
