ABO UT THIS GUIDE

Introduction

Before you begin, take time to review this chapter so that you understand how

the guide is structured and how you can get the most out of it.

ABOUT THIS GUIDE

You do not need to read A Guide to QuarkCopyDesk 7 from cover to cover.Instead, use this guide to quickly look up information, find out what you need to know, and get on with your work.

WHAT WE’RE ASSU MIN G ABOUT YOU

In writing this guide, we assume that you are familiar with your computer and know how to:

Launch an application

Open, save, and close files

Use menus, dialog boxes, and palettes

Work within a networked computing environment

Use the mouse, keyboard commands, and modifier keys

Consult the documentation provided with your computer or other resources if you need more information in any of these areas.

INTRODUCTION | 1

ABOUT THI S GUIDE

WHERE TO GO FOR HELP

If you’re new to QuarkCopyDesk®, or if you want to explore one of its other longstanding features, consult the following resources:

The QuarkCopyDesk Help file

Third-party books about QuarkCopyDesk

General books about desktop publishing

If your issues are at the system level — saving files, moving files, activating fonts, for example — consult the documentation resources provided with your computer.

CONV ENTIO NS 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 OK.

References: In descriptions of features, parenthetical references guide you in accessing those features. For example: “The Modify dialog box (Item menu) lets you format items.”

Arrows: You will often see arrows ( ), which map out the menu path to a feature. For example: “Choose Item Modify Text to access the Columns field.”

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. For example, “Click the button on the Measurements palette to center text.”

2 | INTR ODUCTI ON

ABO UT THIS GUIDE

Cross-platform issues: QuarkCopyDesk is quite consistent across operating systems. However, some labels, buttons, key combinations, and other aspects of QuarkCopyDesk must 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 is 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.

INTRODUCTION | 3

MENUS

Chapter 1: The QuarkCopyDesk user interface

Skimming through the QuarkCopyDesk user interface, you will find that many

commands are familiar or self-explanatory. Once you become familiar with

QuarkCopyDesk menus and dialog boxes, you will discover that keyboard

commands and palettes offer convenient access to features that you can also

access through menus.

This chapter is intended to provide an overview of the functionality of the QuarkCopyDesk interface. For an introduction to articles, components, and using QuarkCopyDesk in general, see Chapter 2, “Articles and components.”

MENUS

QUARKCO PYD ESK MEN U — MAC OS ONLY

The QuarkCopyDesk menu is a part of QuarkCopyDesk for Mac OS X. This menu contains the same commands as in the application menu for other Mac OS X applications — to hide or show QuarkCopyDeskand other applications, to access preferences, and to quit QuarkCopyDesk. This menu includes the following commands:

About QuarkCopyDesk: Use this command to display information about QuarkCopyDesk such as the version number.

Transfer QuarkCopyDesk License: Use this command to deactivate QuarkCopyDesk on one computer so that you can activate it on a different computer. Available only when QuarkCopyDesk has been activated.

4 | CHAPTER 1: THE QUAR KCOPYDESK USE R INTERFACE

MENUS

Activate QuarkCopyDesk: Use this command to activate QuarkCopyDesk on your computer. Available only when QuarkCopyDesk is running in demo mode.

Preferences: Preferences enable you to specify default settings and customize the way QuarkCopyDesk works. You can modify application or article preferences. Application preferences apply to QuarkCopyDesk; therefore, they affect the way all articles are handled. Article preferences affect only the active article. However, if you change article preferences with no open articles, the new preferences become default settings for all new articles.

Quit QuarkCopyDesk: Exits the application.

FILE MEN U

The File menu enables you to manipulate electronic files in a number of ways, including the ability to create, open, print, and save. This menu includes the following commands:

New: Choose an option from the New submenu to create an article. If you choose New Article from Template, you can select a QuarkCopyDesktemplate file from which you can create the article.

Open: Use this option to open article files.

Close: Closes the active article.

Save: Use this option to save the active article.

Save As: Use this option to save a copy of the active article.

Revert to Saved: Returns the active article to the state it was in when it was last saved.

Import Text/Import Picture: This command changes depending on what kind of box is selected. You can use this command to import text into a text box or to import a picture into a picture box.

Save Text: Use this option to save the contents of the active text component as a separate file.

Append: Use this option to append style sheets, colors, and a variety of other types of resources from another article file.

CHA PTER 1: THE QUARKCOPYDESK USER INTERFACE | 5

MENUS

Article Setup: Displays the Article Setup dialog box, which lets you set the page size and orientation, control whether the article uses facing pages, and create and configure the article’s master components.

PDF: Use this option to create a PDF from the active article.

Print: Lets you print the active article.

Exit (Windows only): Use this option to exit the application.

EDIT MENU

The Edit menu enables you to edit text, use the Clipboard, search and replace text and formatting, change application defaults, predetermine text formatting, create lists, and customize common printing procedures. This menu includes the following commands:

Undo: Undoes the last action.

Redo: Redoes an undone action.

Cut: Cuts the active content.

Copy: Copies the active content to the clipboard.

Paste: Pastes the clipboard contents in the active component.

Clear (Mac OS only): Deletes the active content.

USING PALETTE GROUPS

The Palette Groups feature lets you combine several palettes into one.

This palette group shows the Style Sheets, Colors, and Lists palettes attached as one, which economizes space while providing easy access to functions.

20 | CHAPTER 1: THE QUAR KCOPYDESK USE R INTERFACE

PALETTE GROUPS AND PALETTE SETS

To attach a palette to a palette group, Control+click/right-click the title bar of a palette group and choose an unchecked palette name. When you attach a palette that is already displayed, the palette moves to become part of the palette group. To detach a palette from a palette group, Control+click/right-click the palette name and choose Detach <palette name>.

PALETTE SETS: SAVIN G A PALE TTE CONFIGURATION

The Palette Sets feature lets you store and recall the position and status of all open palettes and libraries, so that you can easily switch between different palette configurations.

Different palette sets can align with the stages of your workflow. For example, if you compose text in QuarkCopyDesk at the start of a project, you might want to have only the basic Tools and Measurements palettes handy while you type. But a later stage in the process might require the Style Sheets and Lists palettes, followed by a stage when you need libraries and graphic-intensive tools for color and image management.

To create a palette set, first display all of the palettes you will need for a particular task and hide all other palettes. Then choose Window Palette Sets Save Palette Set As to display the Save Palette Set As dialog box, enter a name, and optionally assign a key command.

To retrieve a palette set, choose Window Palette Sets [name of palette set] or press the keyboard combination for that palette set.

UNDERSTA NDING ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

Chapter 2: Articles and components

Articles and components are the basic building blocks that you work with in

QuarkCopyDesk. This chapter describes both in detail.

UNDERSTAN DING ARTI CLES AND COMPONENTS

An article is the main format used by QuarkCopyDesk. Each article consists of one or more components, and each component is an independent text flow or picture. When you select a text component in QuarkCopyDesk, you can edit and apply formatting to the text in that component. When you select a picture component in QuarkCopyDesk, you can crop, scale, rotate, and even perform image-editing operations on the picture in that component.

One way to create an article is to simply choose File New Article in QuarkCopyDesk, and then add the components you need. (You can create a component by choosing Component New.) You can also create an article in a QuarkXPress project by adding text and picture boxes to an article icon in an Article palette in QuarkXPress.

There are two ways to open an article that was created in QuarkXPress. One way is to export the article from QuarkXPress as an article file and then open the article file in QuarkCopyDesk. The other way is to simply open the

22 | CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

UNDERSTANDING ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS

QuarkXPress project file in QuarkCopyDesk. Whichever method you use, the stories in the QuarkXPress article’s text boxes become text components and the picture boxes in the article become picture components.

For more information about creating and exporting articles in QuarkXPress, see Chapter 12, “Multiple Article XTensions Software.”

You can also import content from an article’s components in QuarkXPress. You can import the contents of a text component into a text box, and you can import the contents of a picture component into a picture box.

READING ORDER

Components in an article occur in a particular reading order — the order in which the components should be viewed, regardless of how they’re physically arranged — which you can change if you need to. Every component also has a name, so you can descriptively label your components. For example, you might name the first component in a story “Headline,” the second text component “Story,” the following picture component “Photo,” and the last text component “Caption.”

TEXT COMPON ENTS AND PAGES

Each text component can be viewed and edited as a series of one or more pages. If you add content until a page overflows, QuarkCopyDesk creates another page. If you delete a page of content, QuarkCopyDesk automaticallydeletes the empty page from the component.

You can import a variety of types of documents into a text component, including Microsoft® Word files and articles saved by versions 2.22 and later of QuarkCopyDesk. You can also export text from an article in most of these formats.

CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS | 23

UNDERSTA NDING ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

EDITING PICT URE COMPON ENTS

Among the ways QuarkCopyDesk lets you edit pictures are the following:

Rotating

Scaling

Cropping

Applying picture effects (including Brightness/Contrast, Blur, Despeckle, and others)

Picture editing must be done in WYSIWYG view. Pictures can only be viewed in Full Screen and Galley views.

MASTER COMPON ENTS

Each component is based on a master component. A master component is the equivalent of a master page in QuarkXPress; it dictates the properties of components you create from it. For example, if you create a text component from a master text component that has particular margin, column, and gutter values, then the text component inherits those margin, column, and gutter values.

When you create a QuarkCopyDesk article from scratch, QuarkCopyDesk uses the first master text component to create a single text component. If you create a new component, and multiple master components of that type are available,

you must choose which master component you want to use.

If you change a master component (File Article Setup), the change affects all components that are based on that master component. This includeschanges to the margin guides, number of columns, and column guides.

24 | CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

UNDERSTANDING ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS

The Article Setup dialog box lets you work with master components.

MAS TER COM PONEN TS AND QUAR KXPRES S

When you open a QuarkXPress project in QuarkCopyDesk, that project’s master pages become master components. Any items on such master pages are ignored; only the text-related specifications of the page (such as margin, column, and gutter values) are used.

TEMPLATES

A template is a locked article that you can use to create articles that have preexisting components or content. You can save any article as a template. To create an article from a template file, double-click the file’s icon or choose File New from Template in QuarkCopyDesk and then select the template file.

CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS | 25

UNDERSTA NDING ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

QUARKCO PYD ESK LIGHTWEI GHT FILE FORMAT

In addition to its native file format, QuarkCopyDesk lets you open and save files in a lightweight file format. This format can be useful in situations where file size is an issue. Where the QuarkCopyDesk 7 format includes all content in a project, the lightweight file format includes only those items that a QuarkCopyDesk user is supposed to work on. The lightweight file format can also contain a page picture to show what the layout looks like, either within the article file or as a separate file.

ARTICLES AND QUARKXPRESS

The QuarkCopyDesk 7 file format is based on the QuarkXPress 7 file format. Consequently, you can open a QuarkXPress project in QuarkCopyDesk. You cannot open a QuarkCopyDesk article in QuarkXPress, but you can import the contents of an article’s components into text boxes and picture boxes.

A QuarkXPress project can contain items that have been marked as articles. To create articles in QuarkXPress, you must have the Multiple Articles XTensions module loaded. After you have created articles in QuarkXPress, you can either open the project file in QuarkCopyDesk or export the articles as article files (in either the QuarkCopyDesk 7 file format or the QuarkCopyDesk lightweight file format). For more information about Multiple Articles XTensions software, see Chapter 12, “Multiple Articles XTensions software.”

When you open a QuarkXPress project in QuarkCopyDesk:

If the project contains an article, QuarkCopyDesk lets you edit the contents of the components in that article. Non-article content is displayed if you are in WYSIWYG view, but it cannot be edited.

If the project contains more than one article, QuarkCopyDesk displays a dialog box and asks you to choose one of the articles.

If the project does not contain articles, and all of its layouts are Print layouts, you can view the contents of the project’s layouts but you cannot edit them. (Use the tabs at the bottom of the article window to navigate between layouts.)

26 | CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

UNDERSTANDING ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS

If the layout contains more than one layer, all items on all visible layers are available in QuarkCopyDesk. There is no such thing as switching between layers in QuarkCopyDesk; all components from every visible layer are available at all times. QuarkCopyDesk keeps track of which items are on which layers internally, though, so if you edit such an article in QuarkCopyDesk and then open the project in QuarkXPress, all items remain on the layers where they were.

Components on layers that are suppressed cannot be printed from QuarkCopyDesk.

WYSIWYG VIEW

QuarkCopyDesk gives you three ways to look at the components in an article: Full Screen View, Galley view, and WYSIWYG view. Full Screen view and Galley view are designed to let you concentrate on the text, and WYSIWYG view is designed to show you what the text looks like in the context of the layout.

When you use WYSIWYG view, you see a visual representation of the actual layout. You can identify the components that are included in an article by their colored outline. Items from the layout that are not included in the article are neither selectable nor editable.

For more information about the three views, see Chapter 8, “Views.”

WYSIWYG view is relevant only to QuarkXPress projects that contain articles and articles that were exported from QuarkXPress layouts.

CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS | 27

UNDERSTA NDING ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

OVERSET AND UND ERSET

If a text story in a QuarkXPress text box gets too long, the box overflows and the last part of the text does not display. (There are exceptions to this rule, but this is a common scenario.) The portion of text that does not display in this scenario is called overset. If there is not enough text to fill the space available, this is called underset. Copyfitting is the process of working with text until it fits the available space.

If you are working in WYSIWYG mode, an overset occurs when the last text box in a chain overflows and new pages are created at the end of the article. In Galley view and Full Screen view, the Measurements palette includes a Depth field that indicates when text is underset, fit, and overset. Galley view and Full Screen view also include special characters that indicate column breaks, page breaks, and overset. (Keep in mind: Overset can only occur in an article that was created in QuarkXPress.)

PICT URES

In WYSIWYG mode, pictures display as they display in the source layout. In Full Screen view and Galley view, QuarkCopyDesk displays cropped views of pictures.

Technically there is no such thing as overset and underset for pictures. However, in QuarkXPress you can specify effective resolution requirements for various types of pictures, and QuarkCopyDesk will alert you if the picture in a picture component does not adhere to those requirements. (Effective resolution is the resolution at which a picture will be imaged; it is equal to resolution divided by scaling.)

GEOMETRY

The shapes and positions of items in a QuarkXPress layout are collectively referred to as geometry. A layout’s geometry is, essentially, the collection of boxes and lines in that layout.

28 | CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

UNDERSTANDING ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS

When you open an article exported from QuarkXPress in QuarkCopyDesk, QuarkCopyDesk displays the layout’s geometry in WYSIWYG view. Text boxes that are designated as part of the article display as text components, and picture boxes that are part of the article display as picture components. You can edit the contents of components that are part of the article in QuarkCopyDesk, but you cannot edit the geometry of the layout.

ANCHOR ED BOXES

In QuarkXPress, you can paste a box into a text story so that it flows along with the text like a character. Such a box is called an anchored box. You can work with the contents of an anchored box in QuarkCopyDesk, but you cannot create an anchored box in QuarkCopyDesk.

If you open a QuarkXPress project with an article that contains an anchored box, QuarkCopyDesk displays the anchored box inline. You can edit the contents of such a box in all three view modes.

If an article contains an anchored table, you can edit the contents of the table only in WYSIWYG view. An anchored table displays as an icon in Full Screen and Galley views.

WORKI NG WITH ARTI CLES

An article is basically a container for components. You can open article files that were exported from QuarkXPress or create articles from scratch in QuarkCopyDesk.

CREATING ART ICL ES

When you create an article, you can choose whether the article will consist of single pages or of spreads with leftand right-facing pages. You also have the option to create up to 30 columns and specify the width between the columns.

CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPONENTS | 29

WORKI NG WITH ARTICLES

To create an article, choose File New Article (Command+/Ctrl+N).Use the controls in the New Article dialog box to configure your article.

To specify page size, choose an option from the Size drop-down menu. To create a custom-sized page, enter dimensions in the Width and Height fields.

To specify the position of the margin guides, enter values in the fields in the

Margin Guides area.

Check Facing Pages to specify that the article contains both left-facing and right-facing pages. When you check Facing Pages the Left and Right fields in the Margin Guides area change to Inside and Outside.

To specify the number of columns on article pages and the spacing between them, enter values in the Columns and Gutter Width fields.

Use the New Article dialog box to set up an article.

SAVIN G PAGE PICTURES

When you export an article from QuarkXPress, you have the option of including a page picture. A page picture is an image of the page from which the article was exported. A page picture can be displayed when you’re working in WYSIWYG mode to give you some context for the work you are doing.

30 | CHAPTER 2: ARTICLES AND COMPON ENTS

WORKING WITH ARTICLES

When you export an article that has a page picture from QuarkXPress, you can choose whether to include the page picture by choosing an option from the Page Pictures drop-down menu:

In Same File: Embeds the page picture in the article file.

In Separate File: Includes the page picture as a separate file. This can be useful in some workflows.

None: Does not include the page picture.

Note that to create and export articles, you must have the QuarkCopyDesk XTensions modules installed in the XTensionsfolder within the QuarkXPress

application folder. These XTensions modules can be found in the "for QuarkXPress XTension"folder within the QuarkCopyDesk application

folder. For more information about creating articles in QuarkXPress, see Chapter 12, “Multiple Article XTensions software.”

SAVIN G ARTICLES AUTO MATI CALLY

The Auto Save feature protects your work from power and system failures. When Auto Save is on, QuarkCopyDesk automatically records changes made to all articles and saves them to your article folder. Auto saves are performed at user-defined intervals (during idle time, if possible).

To turn on the Auto Save feature, display the Save pane of the Preferences dialog box (Edit/QuarkCopyDesk menu), check Auto Save, and enter an

interval in the minutes field

QuarkCopyDesk does not overwrite the original files until you choose File Save. When you choose File Save, the auto-saved version is deleted, and

the interval starts again.

Auto Save only works with saved articles. If you have an unnamed article that was never saved, it is not protected by Auto Save.
