If you have a Project in QuarkXPress that has only one Layout, and you want to get rid of the extraneous Layout tab at the top or bottom of the window, you can convert the Project to Single Layout Mode. Choose QuarkXPress> Preferences> Project> General and tick the Single Layout Mode checkbox. (Windows: Edit> Preferences> Project> General)
If you change your mind later and want to add another Layout to your Project, just choose New… from the Layout menu.
