  • Bespoke QuarkXPress 2020 - 1 Day Introduction

    Course Details

    QuarkXPress continues to be the standard for page layout for most professionals working in print and design industries and now includes exciting new feature for digital design exporting to ePub & eBook formats. The principle is simple: QuarkXPress allows you to place elements created in other applications onto a page and to flow text around those objects. But there are many new and exciting features to this powerful tool including advanced typography tools, utilities for precise aligning and positioning, tables and layers to name but a few.

    In this 1 day course we focus on learning the key features of QuarkXPress required to produce well-formatted, print-ready colour documents. You will learn how to flow and format text, place and position images, align and adjust layouts and create multi-layout files.

    By the end of this course, you will have a groundwork knowledge of the main elements involved in producing professional print-ready documents with confidence and will have a sound working knowledge of the key requirements of good quality press documents. Please note however that QuarkXPress is a large application and for a more fully comprehensive introduction we recommend the 2 day introduction course.

    Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites:

    This course is intended for designers, pre-press professionals, architects, production managers, marketing, small business owners, and web designers.

    You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media.
