It's one thing to learn how a desktop publishing program works, but it's quite another to learn how that program can work for you. Galen Gruman, Barbara Assadi, and John Cruise, authors of the Macworld(r) QuarkXPress(r) 4 Bible, not only teach you how to master the tools in this sophisticated program, they offer real-world examples and years of design experience in explaining when, how, and why to use them. The Macworld QuarkXPress 4 Bible is an essential reference for publishers and designers new to the world of desktop publishing. Experienced QuarkXPress users will benefit from the detailed information on all of the new features of version 4. Topics covered include: creating a template, working with text, using special effects, output control, image manipulation, and printing. Accompanying the book is a CD-ROM packed with freeware, demos, and shareware that will add functionality to QuarkXPress and help you get the most out of your desktop publishing endeavors.
