Quark Express 6, The industry-leading software for design
QuarkXPress® is powerful layout software with an intuitive, versatile interface that lets you combine writing, editing, and typography with color and pictures to produce dynamic final output.
QuarkXPress is widely used by magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, typesetters, printers, corporate publishers, design firms, catalog houses, book publishers, and form designers. It is also used by businesses with publishing requirements.
Intuitive and adaptable interface
The intuitive QuarkXPress interface is largely based on palettes that let you choose from a variety of tools, styles, colors, measurements, and so on to quickly construct a document. Using the comprehensive editing features of QuarkXPress, you can import and manipulate pictures and text. With the powerful printing features of QuarkXPress, you can output your document to precise specifications.
It’s easy to adapt the interface to suit your work habits. For instance, you can hide palettes that you rarely use and display frequently used palettes at all times. Because palettes are movable, you can arrange them exactly how you want them. In addition to menus, you can swiftly access features using context menus, and numerous keyboard commands let you perform routine tasks quickly. The flexibility of the QuarkXPress interface lets you design a workspace that really works for you.
Picture manipulation and color management
QuarkXPress allows you to smoothly integrate pictures with text. Picture file formats created by image-editing or graphics applications can be imported into QuarkXPress documents. Imported pictures can be scaled, skewed, rotated, and clipped. They can be modified using color and shade controls, clipping path settings, and runaround specifications. The picture manipulation abilities of QuarkXPress give you great creative control and versatility. QuarkXPress also provides ICC-based color management on both Mac OS and Windows platforms. Apple ColorSync and Kodak Digital Science technology are both supported.
Flexible options for importing and editing text
You can write, edit, and check spelling in QuarkXPress. You can also use filters to import text files into QuarkXPress documents to save time and money. Filters for most popular word-processing applications are provided with the QuarkXPress application. The text options in QuarkXPress provide greater flexibility.
Precise and professional typography
The extensive typographic controls in QuarkXPress allow you to manipulate text to meet precise specifications. You can kern and track text in .001 increments in any supported measurement system, use paragraph and character style sheets to quickly and consistently format text, scale text, create custom hyphenation and justification specifications, and more.
Multiple document layout and text flow options
QuarkXPress offers several ways to arrange your document pages. You can create multiple-page spreads, specify facing pages, and use master pages to make global changes to the document. Palettes and menu options make it simple to add, delete, or rearrange pages.
You can control text flow by creating text boxes that automatically flow the text to the next page; you can also manually specify text flow from one text box to the next, no matter how far apart the text boxes are.
Improved long-document publishing features include indexing and default character style sheets for cross-references. You can also specify character style sheets when defining a list, making the List feature more versatile and powerful.
Share attributes among complex projects
Layout spaces redefine the work area. The QuarkXPress “document” is now a “project,” which is a collection of layouts that might include print pages, Web pages, or different versions of either, in varying sizes and orientations. Because several layouts can reside in the same project, you can easily share specifications such as style sheets, colors, hyphenation settings, and lists among them. You can even share content between layouts with the Synchronize text feature. Edit text in one place and corresponding text elsewhere in the project will be changed simultaneously.
Tools for creative document design
QuarkXPress provide functionality that makes it simple to create documents with a visual edge. You can easily organize data, including text and pictures, using tables. Layers extend your design power by letting you isolate and arrange items. You can also use Bézier tools and the Merge menu to create picture boxes, text boxes, text paths, and lines in nearly any shape.
Professional printing capabilities
Whether you output to paper or film, the printing capabilities of QuarkXPress will give you the professional results you need. The comprehensive printing controls allow you to output almost any type of document. For instance, you can output separations, create bleeds, tile oversized documents, and print a non-continuous range of pages. You can also create reusable print styles to store frequently used settings.
QuarkXPress lets you print blank plates when printing separations and provides a comprehensive Preview tab in the Print dialog box. Recent enhancements to non-PostScript printing include the ability to print thumbnails, print rotated TIFF pictures at full resolution, and send composite RGB output to a non-PostScript printer. You can also use the Page Positioning, Fit in Print Area, Frequency settings, and print styles with a non-PostScript printer.
As Is Color Space allows the print device to handle color conversion rather than QuarkXPress. The DeviceN functionality lets you output blends, multi-inks, colorized TIFFs, and other items as composite color while retaining spot color information suitable for in-RIP separations. Because PDF creation technology has been incorporated into QuarkXPress, you can output PDF files directly from QuarkXPress without buying third-party software.
Tools for media-independent publishing
QuarkXPress allows you to create Web documents that contain rollovers, hyperlinks, and forms to meet a variety of requirements. Web documents created with QuarkXPress can be exported as HTML documents that can be posted directly on a Web site. These documents can also be opened and edited in standard, non-proprietary tools such as Dreamweaver. Web documents can be used by anyone in your Web workflow, even if they are using a different HTML editing tool.
QuarkXPress gives you a convenient and intuitive way to create and store media-independent content. You can automate the process of extracting content from QuarkXPress documents; extracted content can then be stored in Extensible Markup Language (XML) format. XML content can then be used with HTML templates to create dynamic Web pages. You can also automatically place XML content in a QuarkXPress document for print, HTML, or PDF output.
XTensions software for customizing workflow
QuarkXTensions® and XTensions® modules allow users to customize QuarkXPress to meet their particular publishing needs. QuarkXTensions modules are developed by Quark, and third-party developers create XTensions modules. QuarkXTensions and XTensions are available for both Mac OS and Windows.
QuarkXPress Passport® is an application with all the features and capabilities of QuarkXPress and the added ability to display menus, check spelling, and properly hyphenate in 11 languages — making your international publishing easier and more efficient. QuarkXPress Passport is often used by companies who output documents in more than one language or that need to communicate with an international audience. Typical users include governmental agencies, embassies, translation agencies, advertising agencies, airlines, multinational corporations, and cultural centers.
