Overview

While QuarkXPress is the most-widely used page-layout program in the world, Adobe InDesign is rapidly gaining ground with better typography and transparency features, speedier performance, and more overall control. Plus, InDesign 2 is Mac OS X native, QuarkXPress 5 isn't. But if you're a QuarkXPress user thinking of making the switch to InDesign, you know you can't afford to lose time and productivity at the office while learning a new program. Thanks to InDesign for QuarkXPress Users, you don't have to.

InDesign for QuarkXPress Users is the only book on the market that shows experienced graphic designers how to use InDesign from a QuarkXPress user's perspective. Using an easy-to-read and easy-to-digest style, this unique title focuses on common tasks, giving you quick solutions rather than bogging you down with lengthy theory. Written by well-known experts in the field, the book is abundantly illustrated and covers topics such as using InDesign's transparency features (possible in QuarkXPress only by unwieldy workarounds), and making the most of master pages and style sheets. It's also loaded with real-world tips on how you can apply your QuarkXPress know-how to this up-and-coming software.

    InDesign Bounding Boxes

    In Quark it's very easy to just create a text box and insert text. But in InDesignCS it's not quite that simple, if you're not familiar with Bounding Boxes. They can literally wipe out (actually hide) previously inserted text if you don't understand the Bounding Box feature. This important 'bump' is not properly explained in this as well as most Quark to InDesign CS training books. It has to do with the Text Wrap feature, hidden inside the Windows drop-down window, Type and Tables drop-down buttons at the bottom. If you usually drop text from, say, MSWord, this feature will drive you nutz until you figure it out! Normally, also in Quark, Text Wrap is an important feature. CS treats it quite differently. Fore-warned is fore-warned.
