QuarkXPress 8 Tip: The Master Page Toggle

QuarkXPress 8 adds a powerful new way to work with Master Pages: the Master Page toggle button. You’ll find it at the bottom left of the project window, just to the left of the horizontal scroll bar.

The Master Page Toggle

When you click this button, your page view will swap between the same position on the project page and on the master page on which it is based. So, if you’re zoomed in on a detail on your page, you can instantly view that same area on the master page, just by clicking this button.

For even greater power when using it, try opening a new window on your project (Window> New Window or Window> Split Window…).

Then, you can watch in real time as the adjustments you make to your master page affects your project page. Cool!
