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.
Printing from QuarkXPress usually takes one of two forms. You are either going to be printing directly to a printer in your building or you are going to be sending your files to an output service or a printing service to print them for you. Now, if you are going to send them to an output service, all you really need to do is go to the File menu and choose Collect for Output. If it prompts you to Save, go ahead and click Save, then choose a location to save your files, decide whether you want to include the Fonts or not and the Color Profiles along with the Layout and the Pictures and click Save.
It will create a folder and put all that stuff in it for you and then you can send it off to your printer. Now, if your output service prefers to have a PDF file, along with the QuarkXPress file, you can either choose File > Export > Layout as PDF or click this little arrow down here and choose Layout as PDF, and either way, you just need to choose the PDF Style for output, usually either press or one of these PDF axis will do it for you, and when you click Save it will generate a PDF for you. One thing to remember whenever you are collecting for output or exporting a PDF is that you are only collecting one layout.
To collect all the layouts in a project, you need to process each one separately.
