Word Styles

  • To import style sheets applied to text in Microsoft Word, check the Include Style Sheets box in the Get Text dialog box. If any style sheet names in the word document match style sheet names in the QuarkXPress document, a prompt will appear. Click Rename New Style to import that style. Also turn on Include Style Sheets if you want ASCII text with XPress tags to import as styled text.

  • If Include Style Sheets is turned off, XPress' No Style will be applied to the imported text (unless it's a text-only file with no applied styles), which means it will be stripped of any local formatting if you then apply a style sheet to it.

  • The XPress Tags filter must be enabled for the Include Style Sheets box to be available. Use the XTensions Manager to enable/disable this import/export filter.
