Better Small Caps

The default “small caps” proportions in QuarkXPress are ugly — they’re too small, and the small caps appear thinner than the tall caps.

Better Small Caps

One solution is to make the small caps slightly wider than the tall caps. This makes them slightly thicker, to more closely match the weight of the tall caps.

To do this in any version of QuarkXPress, change the Small Caps preference from its default width and height 75% to 85% high and 90% wide in QuarkXPress> Preferences> Print Layout> Character.
