Dumb quark question

    It's been a long while since I laid out pages, yet I'm doing that again.

    I've been doing the baseball page recently and for some reason they don't use quick keys here.

    I can't remember how to set them up, help please.

    In older versions of Quark there's no setting them up. You either know them or you don't know them.

    In new versions go to System Preferences>Keyboard and Mouse>Keyboard Shortcuts

    Oh, crap, I just realized you're looking to set up shortcuts for your styles. To do that go to Edit>Style sheets and you can make shortcuts within the styles. Best bet to use number pad keys.

    I don't even think I use quick keys that much. Then again, I'm using Quark 4.

    We have Quark 7, but many of our Macs are still running System 9. Thus, we're still using Quark 4.

    Are you using a PC or a Mac to design pages?

    Using a Mac. It is OS-10 as well. I'm not sure which version of Quark it is.

    sorry, gola ... running InDesign here. And only have a little experience in Quark ...

    I suggest, though, spending 15 or 20 bucks and buying the "for dummies" book for quark ... got one initially for InDesign and have come back to it multiple times as a reference guide.

    You mean my paper isn't the last paper using OS 9 and Quark 4?

    I'm speechless.

    Rosie, my shop is in the same ship. Actually, we're running OS 9 (Classic) INSIDE OS X, just so we can run Quark 4. They're looking to go Quark 7 sometime, which means around 2015.

    Ugh.. Quark 4 here, too.

    And, Gomer, 2015 would probably be optimistic for an upgrade in my neck of the woods.

    We had Quark 4 with OS 9 until last fall, when our computers began failing so much they had no choice to do the switch. We went to new Mini Macs with CS3 suite. Like hauling Big Foot with a wheel barrel.

    Ugh. Our reporters get minis, but layout people get G4's or G5's here. Problem is that we're still using NewsEdit Pro and will have to upgrade that when/if we switch over to full OSX structure. From what I can tell it adds quite a bit on to the cost. But it is coming.

    Gomer: We are using NewsEdit Pro here, too...
