Chapter 3. Tools of the Trade > Relationships Between Items

Relationships Between Items

Page-layout programs like QuarkXPress are designed so that you can put a number of text and picture objects on a page. That's the whole point. And anytime you have more than one object on a page, you're going to be concerned about the relationships between those objects. For instance, if you have a block of text and a picture next to it, you probably have an idea about how you want those two items to relate: Do they align on their left edges? Are they centered next to each other? Should the picture always follow the text?

Curiously, some page-layout software developers don't understand this fundamental element of page layout, and they haven't included tools for handling these relationships in their programs. Fortunately for us, however, Quark does understand.
