Re: How may I control the resolution in my document?

One thing that's helpful in the 2015/2016 versions of XPress is that you when you select any imported picture in your layout, the Measurements palette will tell you what that image's printable DPI is. By "printable" DPI, I mean that if you imported a 300dpi image at 100% size, it will tell you it's ...

Re: Doubt about managing bleeds in QuarkXpress

you can create custom guides yourself in the layout (and put them on the master page if you want them on all pages). Just drag them past the page wherever you need them. If you can't get it exactly where you want, you can double-click the guide and type in exactly where you want it to be, -5mm, for ...

re-integrate Imposer and/or MarkIt back into XPress?

Any chance of resurrecting one (or both) of these former ALAP Xtensions (which were rolled into Print Collection then abandoned) into the 2017 release? I know everyone says "you can do this in PDF", but I know I'm not the only designer who would prefer to be able to print imposed spreads (and genera...

Re: Question about registration marks

Using Acrobat 9 or below isn't an option. I do have imposition software for PDF (Imposition Wizard) which DOES allow one to specify either "registration" or "black" for the color of marks. Since I know it's possible in other software, that is why I was asking about adding this to Xpress. The only pr...

Re: Question about registration marks

I was wondering if there was a way to create a way to tell Quark to emit crop marks ONLY (and in black). In the old ALAP Xtension MarkIt (which was once part of Quark's Print Collection), a user had the ability to create custom sets of marks, color bars, etc. I was hoping there might be a way for yo...

Question about registration marks

Hello: Is there ANY way in Quark XPress (2016 or earlier) to change the output color of registration marks to BLACK, rather than "registration color"? The reason I ask is whenever I print a job that has a black-and-white page on which I want to use registration marks, my color digital press sees tha...

Subscriptions

Ditto! The fact that Adobe went to a subscription model might be Quark's best chance of getting people to switch back, once they see what a scam the subscription model is.

Will an imposition solution finally be coming back in v10?

I would like to know if the developers ever concidered re-instating Imposer (or the whole Quark Print Collection or some alternative) to Quark XPress? The "answer" that Quark gave us back with version 8 (that people should just export files to PDF) is lame. Contrary to popular opinion, there are tho...

MAJOR problem with PPD manager (qxp 7.3)

[quote:59b76a487a]Don't move the PPD files. Instead use your Quark menu -> Utilities -> PPD Manager and uncheck all the PPDs you don't want. Then click on "Update" and then "OK" Well, after I did that, I moved them all back where they were originally and tried the menu thing, and it wouldn't work. S...

MAJOR problem with PPD manager (qxp 7.3)

Well, although I cannot still see the entire list, I trashed the ENTIRE Xpress Prefs 7.0 folder, and THEN pointed to a "new" PPD folder. I can now see the ones that I need. Still odd that I cannot see the full list anymore, though.
