In this tutorial, they showed how to use the linking tool. They used it to link text boxes together by starting with a text box, then drawing another text box and clicking on that to make the text flow into that box. Alignment was also demonstrated using the space/ align tool under the item menu when all of the boxes are selected. An even amount of space is then distributed between the boxes.

This tutorial is intended for the one that I missed last week. If there is any problem or if this one is unacceptable, please let me know. This informative tutorial documents the process in creating a one-page magazine article. We are first taught how to size the document and set guides. Then we place and insert the background pictures. Next, we are guided through the process of placing the title and the illustrations in a similar fashion. The text is then runaround the images. Once this is complete, the document should appear finished. The tutorial concludes by showing us how to go about printing onto a 11 X 17 sheet of paper. Posted on

- QuarkXpress Training Tutorial
This website has good information about the basics from the beginning even though it is not finished yet. When you open a new document you can decide everything about the page; page size, columns, margins. There is also a check box for an automatic text box which is usually a good thing to check. After you have your page, you may import text and graphics. In order to import text or graphics into Quark, you must first have an item, meaning a text or picture box selected, in which the text or graphic, the context, then appears. On the tool palette, the item or move tool deals with the item. The context or text entry tool deals with the context. Posted on 11/23/2004

These boxes can have many sides and can be positioned to within 1/1000th of a point. Posted on 11/23/2004
