Video: Adding and moving pages

Manipulating pages in QuarkXPress is central to all the work that we do, and like many of the other features in QuarkXPress, you'll find several ways to do it. Let's open a document with multiple pages for example the Petstumes Project, and when you see this just hit Continue, because we'll be dealing with fonts later on. Now if we zoom out, we'll be able to see the multiple pages here. In fact, if we look at the Pages palette, you'll see that there are three pages. There are several ways to add a new page or remove existing pages.

Adding and moving pages

Manipulating pages in QuarkXPress is central to all the work that we do, and like many of the other features in QuarkXPress, you'll find several ways to do it. Let's open a document with multiple pages for example the Petstumes Project, and when you see this just hit Continue, because we'll be dealing with fonts later on. Now if we zoom out, we'll be able to see the multiple pages here. In fact, if we look at the Pages palette, you'll see that there are three pages. There are several ways to add a new page or remove existing pages.

The Page menu is one of them. We can insert any number of pages, before a certain page, after a certain page or at the end of the layout. If the master page assigned to this page has an automatic text-box on it, this will be available. And here you can choose which master page you want to assign to the new page that you are creating. But I'm going to cancel out of that because I don't want to do that right this second. Also into the Page menu, you can Delete Pages, choose the pages you want to delete, page 1 through page 2, or just page 2 through page 2.

You can even type-in words like End, and it will delete all the pages from Page 2 to the end of the document however many there are. Also into the Page menu you can Move Pages. So please move pages 1 through 2, after page 3, and it will move those pages. That's all great if you like dialog boxes and typing-in numbers, but if you prefer a more visual approach, the Page Layout palette is your friend. As you can see there is three different master pages on this document and there are three document pages on this document as well.

The little icons at the top of the Page Layout palette let you do different things. If you hover your mouse over any of them it tells you what it's going to do. If I click this, it will create a blank single page, meaning a page that isn't based on any of the master pages. And I can click-and-drag it into the position where I want it to be, say down here. Similarly up here, because we are working with a facing pages document, you can also drag a facing pages page onto the document. Now if you want to create a new document page based on one of these master pages, you simply drag it from here to the position you wanted to be in your document.

It can be down here, next to another page, between two pages, and it will push that other one over. But I'll just drop it here at the end, and notice it has an A on it indicating that it's based on Master page A. Now let's say you want to delete a page. You simply select it here, and click the little Trashcan up here. It asks you if you are sure you want to do this? I'll say yup, and now that page is gone. Also in the Page Layout palette, there is a little Palette Options menu up here. When you click on it, you can also create New Master Pages, Insert Pages, Delete Pages and Move Pages.

You can also get to those options by simply Ctrl-clicking or Right-clicking on the palette itself, and they pop-up again based on what you got selected. Now, since I don't have any pages selected, my only option is to Insert New ones. But if I select a page, I can then Ctrl or right-click on it, and it will allow me to Insert Pages, Delete, or Move pages for example. The third way to move pages around is to use the Thumbnails feature. Under the View menu, you see an option called Thumbnails. If you select that, you see your pages at about 10% and from there, you can simply move pages to where you want them.

So I'm going to click-and-drag this blank page here, and put it up here. One thing to remember about all this page moving around business is that it's not undoable. In other words, once you move a page, it's there for good unless you revert your document and go back to where it was the last time you saved it. So be careful when you are moving pages around. It's a permanent change. Now, the final thing I want to cover is how you move pages from one document to another or from one layout to another. Let's shrink this window up a bit, so that we can see more than one at a time, and let's create a new document, and shrink its window up a little bit, and put it next to this one.

If both documents are being viewed in Thumbnails view, so we are going to switch this one to Thumbnails, you can then drag pages back and forth form one layout to another, whether that layout is in a different project or even in the same project. So if I want this first page over here to exist also in this document, I simply drag it over and now that page has a copy in the other layout. So there is a lot of different ways to move pages around within a QuarkXPress document or a cross QuarkXPress document. That's really cool, because it adapts to the way you want to do your work.
