Chapter 19. Preferences > Other kinds of preferences

Other kinds of preferences

In addition to the preferences that you can choose via the Preferences dialog boxes, you can also set other kinds of very useful defaults for the application. For example, any paragraph or character style sheet that is created when no documents are open will appear on the Style Sheets palette of any subsequently created documents. The same holds true for colors, H&Js, lists, dashes &stripes, and the default auxiliary dictionary. Normal, which is the default style sheet that automatically appears in every new document and in any text box to which type specifications have not yet been applied, can be edited for all future documents when no documents are open. Don't overlook these kinds of defaults—they are enormous time-savers.

Tracking and kerning table settings, custom frame data, and hyphenation exceptions are stored in individual documents and in the QuarkXPress application folder in a file called XPress Preferences. If, upon opening a file, the document settings do not match the XPress Preferences settings, an alert dialog box will appear. Click Use XPress Preferences to apply the Preferences resident on that machine or click Keep Document Settings to leave the document as is.
