Quark CopyDesk 7
is the latest release of the premier stand-alone text and picture editing software from Quark. It enables writers, editors, and other non-designers to meet the demands of fast-paced editorial workflows head-on. CopyDesk is designed to streamline collaboration processes and improves the efficiency of your editorial workflow with features that facilitate copyfit text editing, picture editing and communication.
Sharing the code base with QuarkXPress, Quark CopyDesk gives you Quark‘s renowned typographic controls. Layouts created in QuarkXPress can be exported to Quark CopyDesk easily. When writers or editors open an article in Quark CopyDesk, they can see the layout and write or edit to fit precisely within the established design.
The unique image-handling capabilities of Quark CopyDesk and its support for QuarkXPress 7 features — such as drop shadows, opacity, and picture effects — make it the tool of choice for hybrid editors who want to manage both text and picture content in their articles. Quark CopyDesk is compatible with QuarkXPress 7, so formatted files move seamlessly between the two applications, which streamlines production and saves time and money.
Quark CopyDesk’s split view allows the user to have different visual presentations of an article — WYSIWYG, Galley, or Full-screen — in the same window, or in different windows, and always with a live-update on any changes made to the content. CopyDesk users can write to fit because they know the exact amount of space designed in QuarkXPress for their work. All attributes, such as style sheets, article geometry, and hyphenation and justification rules, are maintained. When text is imported back to the QuarkXPress layout, it will fit perfectly. And QuarkCopyDesk can easily exchange text with Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, XPress Tags, HTML, and other word-processing formats. Features such as Notes and Redlining are perfect for facilitating communication. Use Notes to place electronic communication directly in the text. Notes travel with the article, even when you import into QuarkXPress. With Redlining, tracking changes with QuarkCopyDesk articles provides production teams with a clear record of any and all changes.
