Video Tutorial: Delete Unused Colors in QuarkXPress 8

Many longtime users of QuarkXPress don’t know that since version 4 there’s been a feature that lets you delete all the colors that aren’t being used in the current Project. Here’s how to make use of it:

Choose Edit> Colors
From the Show popup menu, choose Colors Not Used

Press Command-A (Windows: Ctrl-A) to select all the colors in the Edit Colors dialog. You can also Shift-click to select a range of colors, or Command-click (Windows: Ctrl-click) to select discontiguous items.
Click the Delete button.

Pretty simple, huh? I think it would be more convenient if that feature were in the Colors palette, but Edit> Colors isn’t too bad…
