Designer-driven Typography
You’re the expert — design your way.

Create Stunning Text and Achieve the Effects you Want with Hanging Characters
Modern Intuitive Interface
Designer-Driven Typography
Work Faster and Smarter
QuarkXPress® 8 offers easy-to-use, precise, and fully customizable control for hanging characters. You can control the look of your text margin alignment by quickly applying preloaded settings for Hanging Punctuation and Punctuation Margin Alignment.

And only QuarkXPress 8 offers the ability to apply your settings at the paragraph level, so settings don’t have to apply to an entire story. You can even include the hanging characters setting as part of a style sheet.

But our settings are just the beginning. You can build your own settings to precisely define the hang of any character you choose, including drop caps, to create the design effects that work for you.
