Chapter 96. Creating Printer Styles > Creating a Printer Style

Creating a Printer Style

To create a print style in QuarkXPress, you must select Print Styles from the Edit menu. InDesign is a little more flexible: It lets you create printer styles in two ways—using the Printer Styles command (like in XPress) or from within the Print dialog box. In both programs, the printer styles you create are available application-wide, not just to the current document or to open documents.

In the Print Dialog Box

We find it easiest to create printer styles in the Print dialog box. Open the Print dialog for a typical job in your workflow. Make all the choices necessary in each of the panels, and then click the Save Style button at the bottom of the dialog box. You’ll see the Save Style dialog box. To create a new style, type a style name and click OK. To redefine an existing style, choose an existing style name in the popup list and click OK. The style name will now appear in the Printer Style popup menu at the top of the dialog box. That’s all there is to it! You can even press Cancel to leave the Print dialog box without actually printing.
