Retraining the QuarkXPress Mind

Appendix. Retraining the QuarkXPress Mind

You’ve been humming along with QuarkXPress all these years, spending more time with it than with your friends and family, pumping out document after project after layout as the software is updated. You barely have time to keep up with your work, much less learn new features. If this sounds like you, a glance at QuarkXPress 8 might be stressful. What happened to the tools? What’s going on with my old friend the Measurements palette? Not to worry—everything you need is there, and it’s easier to use than ever before.

Think about when you’re renting a car. You know how to drive, but you may not know how to operate the headlights, windshield wipers, GPS, and the like on the car you’re renting. Customer service representatives at the nicer car rental agencies show you how these necessities work. You may have to figure out the radio yourself, but they’ll make sure you get on the road safely. Think of this appendix as your QuarkXPress 8 customer service representative. It’s not going to teach you to drive—just get you going.
