Fill a title with color gradient

Post by ndubau » 12 Jan 2017, 03:45

Hello,
French user, I ask for your indulgence on my employment of the English language!
What I would like is coloring a title with a gradient of colors? Is it possible?
Thank you for sharing and regards
Noël

Hi ndubau,

do you mean coloring the characters itself?

You can convert them to boxes and then apply a gradient.

Thanks
Matthias

Hello Matthias
Thanks for that very fine answer !
I used in a distant past a version 3 of QXP; So I have many things to discover!
Is there an online tutorial for essential manipulations (block wrapping, multi columns, block chaining ...)?
Thanks again !
Noël

Hi Noël,

welcome back then!

There are many tutorials out there. First, maybe the manual will help? It is included on your harddisk (in the Documents folder inside the QuarkXPress folder). If not, please download the French version here: http://www.quark.com/fr/Support/Documen ... arkXPress/

Then, Lynda.com has a recent tutorial (in English): https://www.lynda.com/QuarkXPress-tutor ... 428-2.html

And Martin Turner posts a 10 min tips and tricks video every Wednesday: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... i-pLNrwXMO
