Bespoke QuarkXPress 7- 1 Day Upgrade Overview

QuarkXPress Logo and New Features Course Delegates

QuarkXPress™ is the standard in page layout for many professionals working in print and design industries. The principle is simple: QuarkXPress allows you to place elements created in other applications onto a page and to flow text around those objects. There are many other 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 new features and enhancements in QuarkXPress - the most significant upgrade in the application's history. This course is designed for current users of prior versions of QuarkXPress who want to ensure they can maximise the benefits of QuarkXPress's new features in production as soon as they upgrade.

By the end of this course, you will be familiar with all the new features in QuarkXPress, enabling you to start work with the new version with confidence and increased productivity.
