Sneak Peek of QuarkXPress 2019: 9-Point Reference Grid

Post by Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 16 Apr 2019, 03:00

QuarkXPress 2019 is coming this summer! We are so excited about the new version that we want to start talking about it now! As you may know, we release a new version of QuarkXPress every year. For each release we develop new and innovative features that will benefit QuarkXPress users. Many of the new features we develop come directly from requests from customers.

As a sneak peek into what you can expect from QuarkXPress 2019, we wanted to tell you about a feature taken from the top of our customer wish list: 9-Point Reference Grid.

What is 9-Point Reference Grid?
When you need to create or adjust boxes and lines on a page, you often need to align items to specific coordinates or to other objects. QuarkXPress already helps you with that by offering calculations in the measurement palette and dynamic guides.

However, in many cases designers want to specify exact coordinates of the center of a new box, for example, or the space between the edge of a box and the spine, without using complicated calculations. To help with this, QuarkXPress 2019 will add a 9-Point Reference Grid selector that allows you to specify the exact coordinates of the center point of an object and all four corners and four edges.

Even better, when rotating a box, with one mouse click you can specify the center of rotation. Imagine all the time you’ll be saving!

If you are not using QuarkXPress 2018 yet, you can now upgrade using QuarkXPress Advantage. You will get the latest version of QuarkXPress, free and unlimited tech support and you will be guaranteed to receive QuarkXPress 2019 for free when it is released.
