Page Grids and Grid Styles
Maintain Total Control Over Text and Object Alignment
With QuarkXPress®, you can use page grids and grid styles to make sure that lines of text in separate boxes align with one another on the same baselines. You can apply different grids to different pages, and even apply different grids to boxes on the same page. When used in conjunction with master page guides, grid styles can shave hours off of tedious alignment tasks.
Page grids can be applied on a page-by-page basis, allowing you to use different alignment options on different pages of the same layout.
A grid style specifies a different set of alignment options, based on font size, spacing, cell alignment (for East Asian typography), and other options. You can apply grid styles with a Grid Styles palette.
On a paragraph-by-paragraph basis, you can control whether text aligns to the grid style applied to the box it’s in, or to the grid of the page it’s on.
You can show and hide grid lines at will, and even specify which lines (for example, topline, centerline, and baseline) display when a given grid style is applied.
