Re: Returning to XPress

Hi Erik, On the Quark website, you can download the key command PDF for the Mac. I use Windows and it is ctrl+shift+alt+. (period) and modifies the text size 1 full point. Using the comma along with the other keys mentioned decreases one full point. ctrl+shift+. (period) does, to me, weird increment...

Re: Option drag duplicate destroys object hierarchy

I have nothing to really add to this discussion... But your example of physical tools (X-Acto knives, T-squares, rulers, etc.) reminds me that they too are not fully immune to change. I do wood working as a hobby largely using hand tools. My hand tools, many/most 200 years old and some more than tha...

Re: How to rotate the image inside the frame by 45 degrees?

Hi Jiri,

Yes, constraining just an image for rotation doesn't seem to work. One can type in the amount in the Measurement palette. And if a publication has many to rotate, one can create an Object style.

Sorry. I was hoping there was a means.

Re: Photo resolution

Hi John, Original files are always best...if they still have them. You could try exporting as PDFs and see if that helps. If that doesn't help, there is software that can increase "resolution" and if the image files are reasonable, it can do a decent job if the increase isn't above 200% in my experi...

Re: Setting preferences for imported photos?

Still worked for me in 2017 (and 2018), but I use Windows. If you are using a Mac, I believe there is a menu choice. If so, one would set a particular frame the way one would ant for default, then...look through the menus. Likely a Synchronize Default, or Set Default or something along those lines. ...

Re: Giving up on Xpress

Sirish Nair (Quark): Invoke Preferences dialog > Go to Key Shortcuts pane . Correct answer: Be glad you work on MAC. Windows users do not have this option at all ! Yes! This is one of those things that I would think could be classed as low-hanging fruit . It should simply be added (and the Mac-only...

Re: How to manage PDF styles

I usually create new output styles via the Edit menu. That seems to always work fine for me.

Re: Giving up on Xpress

... But if a GUI is that bad you can not figure things out without consulting handbooks and forums, it is just bad software design. You describe a lot of changes seemingly all at once and all the newer software was basically canned for similar reasons. I use QXP & ID just about each day depending o...

Re: IDML-Import -> profile lacking

I was thinking just deleting X number of pages.

But if you would like, just upload the IDML to dropbox or the like and either post the link here or send me a Private Message for the download link.
