Callouts

Boxes and Groups Move Automatically With Your Text

Imagine you’re creating a textbook with pictures in the sidebar, and you want the pictures to always appear on the same page as the text they illustrate. Or a guidebook where you want to put floating icons to the left of some paragraphs. Or a magazine where you want a column-spanning pull-quote box that always falls on the same page as the corresponding text. You can do all of these things manually — or you can do them automatically with the QuarkXPress® Callouts feature.

The Callouts feature lets you associate a box or group (a callout) with a specific point in the text flow called a callout anchor. When the text reflows and the callout anchor moves, the callout automatically moves with it — whether it’s to a different part of the page, or to a different page altogether.

For maximum flexibility, you can position a callout relative to the page or spread, or relative to the position of the callout anchor itself. You can create callout styles, which work like style sheets and make configuring a callout as easy as clicking a palette. An intuitive interface makes it all easy to learn and easy to use.

How it Works

  1. Just insert a callout anchor in the text, then click an item or group and associate it with that callout anchor
  2. You can modify each callout’s settings individually, or use callout styles to speed things up

  • Position callouts precisely with comprehensive horizontal and vertical alignment options
  • Configure callouts easily with a single, linear dialog box
