You can essentially export style sheets from QuarkXPress for use in Microsoft Word. This can be useful if you’re creating a layout and want to hand over the styles for your writers to sue. Here’s how:
In QuarkXPress, apply your style sheets to some text, then export that text in Rich Text Format or Microsoft Word format. (Choose File> Save Text)
When you open the exported RTF or Word document in Word, the style sheets will be added to Word’s style sheets. Delete the text, then save the file as a template for your writers. The styles will remain, and you can politely request that your writers use them.
