Quark has a 1-minute video that shows a nifty trick for creating mirrored text in QuarkXPress. Watch it here.
The technique involves converting the text to a picture box, flipping it vertically, and filling it with a linear blend from black to transparent.
Jay Nelson is the editorial director of PlanetQuark.com, and the editor and publisher of Design Tools Monthly. He’s also the author of the QuarkXPress 8 and QuarkXPress 7 training titles at Lynda.com, as well as the training videos Quark includes in the box with QuarkXPress 7 . In addition, Jay writes regularly for Macworld and Photoshop User magazines and speaks at industry events.
