Guide Color Defaults

Post by prepress57 » 01 Nov 2017, 17:28

In older versions of Quark we could go to the preferences without a document open and select our guide and margin colors in order to make this the default for all new documents. I haven't found a way to do this in Quark 2017. Is there still a way to change the default margin and guide colors?

Hi prepress,

it's still there in QX2017:
1) Close all documents
2) Go to Preferences>Default Print Layout>Guides&Grids.
3) Set your preferred colors there.

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?
