OT Presidential primary elections and caucuses

Iowa has caucus. New Hampshire has a primary. It depends on what each state calls them. Essentially, they are the same. They weed out the weak candidates before the party chooses a candidate. It has sadly become an opportunity for the media to attempt to prematurely announce who the president will b...

Is anyone adding a surcharge for Quark files?

[strong]PrintHead:[/strong]Jim Oblack, I'm having a rough time trying to figure where you're coming from. I'm simply coming from the point of seeing the history of shops charging extra for 'PC' files and seeing if such silly charges are still being done, and if they are being done for specific file ...

my quark site!

[strong]Drew Bartlett (Quark):[/strong]As Jim and Thing often mention, some don't feel QuarkXPress is a viable web tool... I hope I did not miscommunicate. I have said QuarkXPress can produce capable web sites when the user is knowledgeable about web design and can overcome some of the limitations o...

Quark 7 FREE book released

[strong]Marc Horne (Quark):[/strong]If we do a second edition, we'll change that. Or you can always petition Adobe to add that feature. While the rest of us aren't held too highly to strict professional standards here, that comment is a pretty poor reflection of Quark. Is the design software used to...

Quark 7 FREE book released

Marc, we appreciate the best practices documents, and this one does have useful information to a point, but with all due respect what silly person wrote this? Check out this lunacy in the book: Page 21: [quote:9df5e6d04a]IMPORTING PDF QuarkXPress 7.3 can import PDF files up to version 1.5. The defau...

Quark 7 FREE book released

I see the 'HUH' but I do not understand the question or confusion. Creative folk can be so uncreative that they think that only one platform or one application can make them the most creative. They stick with what they know, even if that ignorance of other tools actually limits their own potential. ...

Quark 7 FREE book released

Sure people can be sold on it. Plenty of people on these forums have InDesign as part of the suite but barely peek at it. Quark's marketing has always promoted a familiar interface and taught us to not look elsewhere. Plenty of folks on this forum say 'I don't want to have to learn a new software' o...

Quark 7 FREE book released

[strong]thing:[/strong]And there is the last point - if you have a CS3 package that includes Illustrator and Photoshop then you have ID too. Why buy XPress? That is the big point. This is just marketing to keep existing QuarkXPress users content with their purchase and to assume that they are better...

Quark's trying, but not hard enough

Wouldn't you put these guides in a separate layer so that you could hide them easily?

Alt-click the layer to 'select all' then apply 'overprint stroke' in the attributes window.

my quark site!

RE: howesoundhypno.com

I'd cast a vote for slightly larger body text. On Windows (the preferred platform to check design work since most use), the page only looks good in Safari. IE and Firefox render the type too lightly (possibly due to font smoothing).
