Copy a Picture File from QuarkXPress

Sometimes, you just want a copy of a picture file that has been imported into a QuarkXPress layout. You don’t care where the original lives on your hard drive or network, and you certainly don’t want to have to go find it. All you want is a quick copy of that picture file.

If you’re on a Mac, QuarkXPress offers an easy way to copy a picture file from a picture box to anywhere on your hard drive. Just select the picture box, and then under the script-shaped menu, choose Images> Copy to Folder…. Choose a destination, and the original picture file will be copied into it.

(By the way, this feature appeared way back in QuarkXPress 4 and has been carried forward ever since.)
