Truly Global Font Replacement in QuarkXPress

Unfortunately, there is no feature in QuarkXPress that lets you replace one font with another across master pages, document pages and style sheets. Here’s a trick that works:

1. Save the document and close it.

2. Use your font management utility (Suitcase, FontExplorer, FontAgent, etc.) to turn off the font you want to replace. If your font management utility has an auto-activation feature, temporarily turn that off as well.

3. Open the document in XPress again. When the program tells you that a font is missing, click List Fonts. Select the old (now missing) font from the list and click Replace. Choose the new font from the Replace popup menu and click OK.

4. When the document opens, every instance of the old font in your document will have been replaced with the new font.
