Acrobat offers many tools such as linking and bookmarks for easy navigation of a PDF. These tools are now also found in the PDF Design Pro XT for QuarkXPress, thus eliminating the need to launch the Acrobat application.Using the XTensions module, a user can create projects of QuarkXPress documents. For instance, a large book publisher very likely creates a QuarkXPress document for each chapter, rather than the entire book in a single document. Using PDF Design Pro XT, these individual documents are grouped into a PDF and treated as a single document. This is an especially useful feature when publishing a manual to CD-ROM.Automatic bookmarks are created directly in QuarkXPress. The bookmark feature of Acrobat allows the user to place markers to where the reader may jump. This might be important information or related places within the document. The XTensions module has full support for allowing the user to create the bookmarks without leaving QuarkXPress. Bookmarks can be defined using an automatic method of specifying parameters (e.g., make a marker for all text greater than 14 points, or perhaps, for all text larger than 9 points but smaller than 14 points). Using this method, readers would be directed quickly to major and minor heads. The user may also define bookmarks manually.Using article threads, a linked story is presented in galley form for quick perusal. Any linked text in a QuarkXPress document can become an article thread. This thread is presented in an enlarged window for easy reading, much like an editorial galley. Using the
enter key, the reader can scroll through the galley to read following pages. Browsers, such as Netscape, enable the user to create hyperlinks within the document. A hyperlink, when clicked, jumps the reader to a related place either in that document, within another document, or if on the web, to another web site.The PDF behaves somewhat differently than HTML for the web. A PDF page is more like a graphic. Its image is downloaded to the reader's hard disc for viewing. The benefit is that the document's complete integrity is maintained. All fonts are displayed correctly, columns are still columns, and graphics are integrated into the page. Netscape 2.0 supports the PDF automatically.Features:• user-defined PDF directives (features of Acrobat) within QuarkXPress;• project manager for managing multiple QuarkXPress documents as a single PDF;• automatic user-defined bookmarks based on typographic attributes;• manual user-defined bookmarks;• automatic generation of article threads; and• user-defined hyperlinks.Manufacturer: Techno Design
