INTRODUCTION

Introduction

This Guide explains the functionality of the workflows included with Automation Services for Quark Publishing System® (QPS®).

Where we're coming from

This book assumes you are familiar with your computer and know how to:

Launch an application

Open, save, and close files

Use menus, dialog boxes, and palettes

Use the mouse, keyboard commands, and modifier keys

If you need help performing any of these tasks, consult the documentation resources (user or reference guides) provided with your computer.

Conventions in this book

Formatting conventions in this guide highlight information to help you quickly find what

you need.

Bold type style: The names of all dialog boxes, fields, and other controls are set in bold type. For example: "Click Storage in the Administration pane."

References: In descriptions of features, parenthetical references guide you in accessing those features. For example: "The System Storage controls (Administration pane) let you designate asset storage."

Arrows: You will often see arrows (>), which map the path to a feature. For example: "Choose Administration > User Profiles to add a user."

Icons: Although many tools and buttons are referenced by name, which you can see by displaying ToolTips, in some cases icons are shown for easy identification.

INTRODUCTION

Cross-platform issues: Some labels, buttons, key combinations, and other aspects of QPS client applications differ between Mac OS® and Windows® because of user interface conventions or other factors. In such cases, both the Mac OS and Windows versions are presented, separated by a slash, with the Mac OS version presented first. For example, if the Mac OS version of a button is labeled Select, and the Windows version is labeled

Browse, you are directed to "Click Select/Browse." More complex cross-platform differences are mentioned in notes or parenthetical statements.

Notes provide helpful information about particular features and general techniques for

using the software.

UNDERSTANDING WORKFLOWS

Understanding workflows

A workflow is a predefined sequence of actions for creating output. You can also think of a workflow as a framework on which you can build an automated task. For more information, see "Understanding workflows" in A Guide to Automation Services.
