QuarkXPress’ Library feature lets you store often-used objects for later use. Another use for a Library is to provide graphics to someone else to use for laying out pages.
If you give someone a library, they don’t need the high-resolution files, just the screen previews in the library. When you get the file back, XPress will remember the links to your original files and everything will print at high resolution.
