The Print dialog box in QuarkXPress 7 and 8 looks quite different from previous versions. If you’ve ever wondered what all those options do in the Print dialog box, follow along with me as I lead you through each and every one of them — throwing in a few tips along the way.
You may be surprised at how some feature will make your printing life a lot more pleasurable. For example, do you know why you might choose “Rough” in the Pictures area of the Print dialog box? How about enabling or disabling the downloading of particular fonts? How about creating a new Print Style from within the dialog box?
Yes, gentle people, all these and more are explained in this 13-minute video, which was made possible by our friends at Lynda.com. They were gracious enough to share a selection of chapters from my “QuarkXPress 7 New Features” video training, so I hand-picked several that I thought would be most appealing to new users of QuarkXPress 7 and QuarkXPress 8.
This is the eighth in the series. You can also watch my previous videos:
“Automatic Color Management in QuarkXPress 7 and 8“, “Synchronized Items“, “Using Photoshop Files in QuarkXPress“, “The Amazing (and overlooked) Glyphs Palette!“, “Using Picture Effects to Edit Images in QuarkXPress“, “Alpha Channels” and “Multiple Windows“
