QuarkXPress has always been the perfect tool for creating and publishing documents. In QuarkXPress 8 Essential Training, Jay Nelson—the publisher of Design Tools Monthly and a QuarkXPress expert—covers all the tools and features in this updated version of the program, from basic page layout to Flash integration and web page creation. Throughout this comprehensive training, Jay shows what's needed to produce professional-quality projects that integrate text, pictures, graphics, and tables. He also offers real-world page layout techniques that designers can apply to their own projects. Exercise files accompany the course.
When working with multiple pages document, especially those with multiple spreads, you may sometime be called upon to create a spread with more than two pages. Have you ever opened a magazine and then when you flip a page, there is another page to flip open, and so you get three pages in a row? Well, that would be a multi page spread. In XPress, it's really easy to create one of those. You simply go to your Page Layout palette and either drag an existing page right over next to another existing page or drag a master page or a blank page into the position that you want it to be.
So maybe I would take this and drag it here. When I see it's in the position I like, I let go and now I have a third page there. Now you may wonder exactly how many you can put in there. Now you can put as many as you like, let's put another one down here, as long as the combined width of the pages doesn't exceed 48 inches. Knowing how to produce the multipage layout is essential if you have a project that, for example, has three pages that fold out either in a brochure or a magazine or some other publication.
Fortunately, in XPress, it's as easy as dragging and dropping the pages into position in the Page Layout palette.
