Draw brand new illustrations directly in QuarkXPress 8 with the redefined Bézier Pen tool — just like you do in Illustrator® and other major graphics applications. Most importantly, you can focus on the task at hand because we’ve separated illustration tools from the tools you use for basic page-layout tasks.

Easy Page Layout with Drag and Drop
Little things make a big difference — we think you’ll love the way we handle drag and drop.
Design as quickly and fluidly as your ideas. When you move your text or picture content to the page, the box is automatically created — no need to pre-define boxes!
You can drag text and pictures from your desktop, Adobe® Bridge, iP®, or any other application that supports drag and drop, and your box is created for you. You can even drag picture boxes from QuarkXPress to your graphics application to customize your images.
At a glance
- Drag and drop from your desktop or other applications that support drag and drop, such as Adobe Bridge
- Drop a text file in the midst of existing text flow
- Drag and drop images from your layout to the editing application of your choice
- Work with or without pre-defined boxes

Streamlined Tools with Familiar Keyboard Controls
Picking the right tool for the job is easy in QuarkXPress 8.
We've streamlined and simplified our Tools palette, so the tools do more and it's easier to choose the right one. Even familiar tools like the Item and Content tools get major boosts. For example, you can rotate any box simply by grabbing its corner.
You’ll also enjoy single-key commands — consistent with familiar applications such as Photoshop® — to select tools, as well as keyboard modifiers for duplicating, scaling from center, and performing other common tasks.
By aligning with your other mission-critical tools, while keeping everything you love, QuarkXPress gives you the best of both worlds!
At a glance
- Use any box tool to draw a box without worrying about its content (an easy keyboard shortcut enables this for template creation)

Creative Suite Integration
Today, QuarkXPress® 8 has tighter integration with Photoshop® and Illustrator® than ever before, and through standards like HTML and CSS, QuarkXPress users can publish across media both independently and alongside Adobe® Creative Suite® applications like Adobe Flash® (SWF) and Adobe Dreamweaver®.
QuarkXPress 8 and Adobe Photoshop
QuarkXPress 8 is considered by many to have the best integration with Photoshop’s PSD file format of any layout tool available today. In this section we’ll explain when you should use the PSD format for your images and how to get the most out of them.
For example, you may have multiple layers in your PSD with different product shots, which will vary from publication to publication. If you use PSD, you can switch those layers on or off in QuarkXPress without having to save a separate TIFF for each publication.
Another question that might tip you in favor of PSD is, "Do I need to use a spot color with this image?" Using spot colors in most image formats is often complicated. However, because of the way QuarkXPress supports PSD channels, it’s simpler and more flexible.
Using PSD Files
Bringing the PSD files into QuarkXPress is the same as any other image. Create a Box and then use File > Import... or simply drag and drop the image from your desktop, Finder or an application like Adobe Bridge® with or without creating a box first.
To access the special features of PSD, open the PSD Import palette. (Window > PSD Import) You’ll instantly see thumbnails of the layers along with their names.
For example, you’ve created a layer in Photoshop to give your image an antiqued look, but when you put it in your layout it seems swamped by the surrounding colors. One option might be to reduce the opacity of that layer by clicking on it and entering a new opacity level. Another approach might be to try out a more subtle blending mode like "Soft Light." The beauty is that you see all of these changes right in the context of your page, and you’re not changing the original file. After all, who knows how the effect would look in a totally different layout.
If you want to add an extra ink or plate to your images, you can set up a channel to do that in Photoshop. For example, maybe you intend to varnish part of an image, or you want to use a spot color within your image.
QuarkXPress can remap any channel right in the PSD Import palette — nondestructively. So click on the channels divider of the PSD Import Palette; double click on the channel in question, and you can pick any color from your project’s color palette, ensuring consistency.
As powerful as the PSD support of QuarkXPress 8 is, it can’t manipulate certain kinds of layers, such as layer effects [e.g. Glow, Pattern Overlay, etc.].
If you use one of these layers, the image will import and print just fine, but you won’t get access to the layer controls of the PSD Import palette. If you need that functionality, you can eliminate those kinds of layers from your PSD by converting the layer effects to stand-alone layers or ‘smart objects’ [right click on the Layer in the Photoshop layers palette].
QuarkXPress supports text layers, most adjustment layers, and even 3D layers including opacity and blending mode controls.
QuarkXPress and Adobe Illustrator
Illustrator is a great tool for creating logos and vector illustrations. Traditionally, the route into QuarkXPress has been to export an EPS from Illustrator. Now, things are made much easier with the arrival of direct Illustrator .ai file import into QuarkXPress 8. Simply drag and drop or import your Illustrator native file into your layout just as you would any graphics file format.
QuarkXPress has a powerful transparency engine, but it doesn’t support partially transparent objects in PDF or .ai files yet. So if you are using something like a drop shadow in Illustrator and plan to place that over a non-white background or object, you might see undesirable results.
The good news is that the drop shadow and transparency features of QuarkXPress works on imported Illustrator files, so you can apply a drop shadow or change the opacity of your .ai file right in your layout instead.
QuarkXPress Vector Tools
QuarkXPress is well equipped for drawing tasks and in our newest release we have standardized many of our graphics tools to work more like Illustrator, Freehand® and similar tools.
QuarkXPress 8 and Flash
Page-layout professionals can create rich Flash projects — without compromising design — using the built–in Flash authoring capabilities included in every edition of QuarkXPress 8. Working in the same familiar print environment of QuarkXPress 8, you can take existing print jobs to Flash, or create new Flash projects, in minutes — no additional purchase or coding required!
Other Points of Integration
- QuarkXPress includes Web layouts that can create menus and hyperlinks, convert print graphics or fancy text treatments to Web graphics, and then write a standards-based HTML file with CSS that can be opened directly in Adobe Dreamweaver.
- QuarkXPress 8 can import PDF files up to version 1.7 (the default PDF version from the Creative Suite applications when using the Press Quality PDF setting is PDF 1.4.)
