The Fastest Way to Learn QuarkXPress 5

When you have completed this book, you will be able to produce flyers, brochures, newsletters, and magazines. You'll be able to change the appearance of text, paragraphs, tab stops, and you will be able to import and manipulate graphics. There is a module in this book that will show you, step-by-step, how to combine text and graphics on a page to produce a flyer that includes a clipping path and auto text wrap.

You'll learn to use and modify style sheets that will enable you to quickly format consistent-looking documents. You'll also learn how to control text flow, create and use master pages and libraries, and control tracking, kerning and hyphenation... all necessary skills that will dramatically improve your productivity.
