Chapter 2. QuarkXPress Basics > Know Thy Program

Know Thy Program

Before I go any further into the wild world of QuarkXPress, I think it's necessary to take a quick look at four parts of the program: the Environment dialog box, the XPress Preferences file, XTensions, and keyboard shortcuts. The first can help you figure out where you are; the second helps XPress remember where it is. The third, XTensions, let you extend the functionality of the program. And the fourth is all about making you super-efficient.

There are times when it's helpful to know the state of your Mac or PC. One of those times is when you're on the telephone with Quark technical support. Another is when you're troubleshooting a weird problem yourself. QuarkXPress can tell you about itself and its environment via the Environment dialog box (see Figure 2-3). You can get to this dialog box in several ways.
