Béziers

QuarkXPress offers a whole slew of tools for creating custom-shaped Bézier boxes, lines, and text paths: Two Bézier picture box tools, two Bézier text box tools, two Bézier line tools, and two Bézier text path tools. Once you learn how to use them, you will be able to draw any shape under the sun.

While each Bézier tool creates an item with a distinctive function—e.g., a closed shape to contain text or a picture, an open line on which to place text, or a decorative, freely drawn line—all Bézier items are composed of the same building blocks: straight and/or curved line segments, connected by points. A point for a curve segment has two rabbit-ear curve handles attached to it that control the shape and direction of the curve. A Bézier item can be closed or open.
