Books

Even though you can make a document thousands of pages long, you should keep your XPress documents small. This reduces the amount of strain on the program, and lessens the chance for document corruption. Working with smaller documents is generally faster and more efficient, especially when more than one person is working on the project at the same time. The question is: if you break up your larger project into small documents, how can you ensure style consistency and proper page numbering among them? The answer is QuarkXPress's Book feature.

You and I usually think of a book as a collection of chapters bound together to act like a single document. QuarkXPress takes this concept one step further. In QuarkXPress, a book is a collection of any XPress documents on your disk or network that are loosely connected with each other via the Book palette. In other words, just because it's called a “book” doesn't mean it's not relevant for magazines, catalogs, or any other set of documents (see “Tip: The Book Palette as Database,” below).
