Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Getting better at QuarkXPress translates directly into getting more done in less time...which translates directly into more cash. (Or at least less unpaid overtime.) So QuarkXPress 6 Killer Tips will pay for itself -- early and often.

Start with settings. (Hate those Greeking bars? Turn 'em off. Clear out those bogus RGB colors you shouldn't be using -- permanently. Change your Tool preferences for all your documents, not just one. Set a better runaround default (the built-in 1 point setting is never enough). Use the Grabber Hand and Live Scroll to get more control over scrolling. Discover how to instantly align identical headers or footers for facing pages with a lot less fuss and muss than you're used to. Learn how to do more with libraries, how to organize all those master pages, and more.

You'll find a full chapter on working with lines and boxes (including mini-tips for quicker Bezier curve drawing and editing). You’ll find more than 20 tips on selecting and transforming items; plus a chapter on manipulating pictures (including quick, on-the-fly color conversion). There are loads of tips for better text entry and import, niftier typography, more effective style sheets, working with color, and thankfully, preflight.

This book contains nearly 200 tips in all: It’ll be a rare QuarkXPress user who doesn’t strike gold here. By the way, since QuarkXPress upgrades are occasional and sometimes less than overwhelming, many of Eda Warren’s tips will apply in QuarkXPress 5, or even 4.x. And that goes for Mac and Windows.
