Hi everybody,

I'm starting using Quark Xpress for a translation project.

I'm familiar with Adobe InDesing so, at a fist look, it seems Quark version 6.1 - even if less user-friendly - is not much different.

But there are two issues I can't manage.

First of all, I don't know how I can disable hyphenation (with Adobe InDesign it's quite simple, you have just to flag a box in the text window), but I can't find anything similar in Quark and I really don't know how I can proceed (because I don't want hyphenation).

Then I can't trasform a .qpx file into a .pdf - I've been searching on the web and it seems the only way is to use Adobe Distiller (while with InDesign, you have only to press a button - and it's clear indeed because they're both Adobe products). But I was guessing if there are any alternative solutions (I don't have Distiller).

Thanks in advance,
Chiara

I guess you can use any printer driver that produces the PDF files. Personally, I always print to PS file and then use Distiller.

HTH,

PDF is under file/export Jun 14, 2005

Hi Chiara,

The PDF export is under File->Export or File->Esporta->Layout come PDF. The hyphenation is part of the Hyphenation and Justification settings (Edit->H&J or Modifica->S&G). The "Standard" template has hyphenation enabled, so either disable hyphenation in the Standard style or create a new one. It's applied by assigning the desired style in the paragraph settings.

I guess it also uses Distiller Jun 14, 2005


The PDF export is under File->Export or File->Esporta->Layout come PDF.


Isn't this function connected with Distiller?

Nope. Quark made a big point about it. It's kind of slow, though. I still prefer the method you mentioned, i.e. printing to a ps file.
