Converting text to box

To convert the selected character or characters into a Bézier box, choose an option from the Item > Text to Box submenu.

To convert selected text to unanchored Bézier boxes, choose Item > Convert Text to Boxes > Unanchored.

To convert selected text to anchored Bézier boxes, choose Item > Convert Text to Boxes > Anchored.

To convert the entire contents of a text box or multiple text boxes to unanchored Bézier boxes, choose Item > Convert Text to Boxes > Convert Entire Box.

 

If you press Option/Alt before you choose Style > Text to Box, the text is replaced with an anchored box that is the shape of the text. You can now fill the text shapes with an image, a gradient, or whatever you want.

 

Note: In versions 8 and later of QuarkXPress, you can convert more than one line of text at a time to boxes.
