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.
Often the text you receive from a client has some, shall we way, unfortunate text case formatting applied to it. Fortunately, QuarkXPress offers the change case feature. Let's say I have some text that was typed with the Shift key or the Caps Lock key held down. OOOPS! THIS TEXT IS IN ALL CAPS. Okay, let's zoom in and see what we can do about it. If I select the text, I can go to the Style menu and choose any option here: Uppercase, Lowercase, or Title Case. In this case, I'll go to the Lowercase and there my text has been converted to true lowercase, even though it was originally typed in all caps using the Shift or Caps Lock key on the keyboard.
If we look at this headline here, we can explore the other change case options. Convert it to uppercase, convert it to lowercase and convert it back down to Title Case, like it was before. This little tool is incredibly handy during the course of a project and I'm relieved that Quark finally added it to QuarkXPress.
