QuarkXPress gains APP studio animation

Quark has issued a free update for users of QuarkXPress 10. The 10.1 update adds HTML5 animation capabilities to App Studio layouts within QuarkXPress and provides version 10 support for the Quark Publishing Platform.

Other useful features include an 800 percent zoom for precise layouts and dynamic guides that automatically appear when items that are created, moved or resized align with other items on the page. The dynamic guides also show when items have the same width and height as other elements on the page or when several items have the same distance to other items to help evenly distribute elements.

Quark has also improved the layout features for books so that users can specify one or more layouts for inclusion in a single book. Books can sync indexes, table of contents and other design elements, such as colours and stylesheets, and can be exported to one or multiple PDFs. This also allows for publications that contain multiple page sizes.

Minor improvements include the ability to export pages, or partial pages as static images and its now possible to modify existing QR codes. Mac users can also create their own colour scheme for the user interface.






Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
