At the Macworld UK website, Michael Burns presents a step-by-step process for creating or converting your QuarkXPress print layout to a Web page, including interactive menus, buttons, forms and Flash content. Here’s the introduction to the article:
QuarkXPress has been able to produce web content since version 5, but compared to print there are more restrictions in terms of graphics and font support. However web content can incorporate features unavailable in the flat print world and web layouts created in QuarkXPress can offer interactive elements, such as user-activated buttons, menus, hyperlinks, submittable forms and Flash content. We’ll explore a few of these options here, and see how QuarkXPress 8 also lets you convert an existing print layout to a web layout.
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.
