Synopsis:

If you're like most designers and publishers who work with QuarkXPress, you've been waiting a long time for this release.

Well, the wait is finally over, and here to get you up to speed on it quickly and easily is QuarkXPress 6 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide. In these pages, best-selling authors and veteran educators Elaine Weinmann and Peter Lourekas use task-based, step-by-step instruction and loads of visual aids to provide a soup-to-nuts grounding in QuarkXPress 6, including all that's new in this ground-breaking release: project files containing multiple layouts, Synchronized Text, improved table creation, and more.
