PDF merge book chapters on Quark 9 ?

It's two years since I wrote this original request and I'm astonished that creating PDFs from the book panel hasn't been addressed. It's a normal function within InDesign for creating PDFs that are required for services like Amazon's CreateSpace and Lightning Source. From ID's book panel I can build...

Gluon Pro Pack offer?

Has anyone received the free Gluon Pro Pack during the QXP9 offer last month?I upgraded to v.9 a few weeks go and am still waiting on this pack.I did email Quark Support last week but haven't heard back from them either. Curious to know.

Using the Book Palette

Brilliant! That is exactly what I am looking for despite Tech Support's strange reply. Your workaround is a bit arcane but I tried it out on a former book and it worked as you described. Many thanks! I have been using InDesign to circumvent this very problem as it does recognise a chapter's left or ...

Using the Book Palette

I recently asked Quark Techinical Support this question: As a book designer, I am needing some help with QuarkXPress book palette and chapters. While creating books via the Book Palette, a chapter in the palette always begins with a right-hand page but if the chapter ends its last page on the right ...

PDF merge book chapters on Quark 9 ?

One of the disappointments with Quark 8's book panel is that chapters had to be output to PDF individually and then compiled in Acrobat. Has this changed in Quark 9 to be able to output a complete chaptered book as a single PDF like InDesign? Add to that is InDesign will recognize left and right Mas...

Unnecessary complexity

LuisV, briliantly said! This is a decade of transition for graphics and media, so the designer from the 90's into the last 10 years will need to adapt. I am one of those. Quark is transitioning, as is Adobe and how this all shakes out with the applications we use could determine a new pecking order ...

QXP + Adobe + FreeHand

But one thing bothers me about the text tool still - if I create and fill a text box - and then change the box in any way then the text goes all peculiar - all stretched out, or squashed or whatever. Why can't I resize the text box and have the text flow properly, as in Quark? With FreeHandMX, only...

Developer suggestions.

I'm pretty much a similar user like you are; upgraded to QXP 8.1 in January from 6.5. I'm on an older G5 dual with Leopard and I installed all the various updates. But I have to say that glitches you spoke of, I haven't seen myself. Placing the pointer in a text box switches to text tool if I double...

Understanding Quark's True Customer

The balance of adding new features over fixing old problems is really balancing new customers and exisitng users. There are some badly needed fixes, one of which I ran through tech support and ultimately posted here, concerning PDF output with Long Doc/Book publishing from the Book Palette. Its the ...

VECTOR please!

I took a side-by-side screen grab of both apps a few months ago.The tool bars aren't the same but the palettes are very close and why FH would fit pretty well with a few tweaks and a facelift to version 8's style.
On the left QXP8.16, on the right FHMX (11.02)
