Chapter 23. Preferences > Fraction/Price

Fraction/Price

Fraction/Price preferences control the proportions of fractions (e.g.,, ) and prices (e.g., $2499, $99.99). To produce a fraction in QuarkXPress, type the normal characters (e.g., 1/4), then select them and choose Style > Type Style > Make Fraction. Or for a price, type and select the characters, then choose Style > Type Style > Make Price. When the preferences are changed, only subsequently created fractions and prices are affected.

For fractions, you can change the VScale (vertical scale) and HScale (horizontal scale) for the Numerator, Slash, or Denominator to make them chunkier or thinner, and you can enter a Kern value for the space between the numerals and the slash or virgule. With Virgule (Mac OS X only) unchecked, the program will insert a normal backslash; with this option checked (we recommend checking it), a special slash that fits better around the numerals will be used instead.
