Bullets, Numbering and Outline Styles in QuarkXPress 10.

The Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles feature makes it easier than ever to create and maintain bulleted lists, numbered lists, and outlines in QuarkXPress. Instead of manually inserting bullets and numbers and manually formatting paragraphs to accommodate them, you can simply choose a bullet or numbering style from a drop-down menu.

Instead of manually adjusting indents in a multilevel outline, you can change indents at the click of a button without creating local formatting. And instead of manually maintaining the numbering for a list, you can let QuarkXPress do the job for you.

 

How can one work with Bullet Styles?

A bullet style describes.
a) Which bullet type to choose
b) how far it should be from the text,
c) and how it should be aligned.

To create a bullet style,

  1. Choose Edit > Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles,
  2.  Select Bullet Style from the new button in the Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles dialog box.
  3. The Edit Bullet Style dialog box displays.

1. To control how the bullet is styled, choose an option from the Character Style drop-down menu.

2. Choose Inherit from Paragraph to use the paragraph's character formatting for the bullet, or choose a character style sheet to use that character style sheet's formatting.

3. Enter the actual bullet character or characters in the Bullet Characters field.

4. If you are inheriting the bullet's formatting from the paragraph, you can change the size of the bullet character or characters using the Size field.

5. The Outset value controls how far the bullet is from the paragraph. You can specify this distance in Absolute units, or click Relative (in Ems) and specify the value in em spaces. The Relative (in Ems) option may be preferable when you will be using the bullet style with different-sized text.

You can apply a bullet style in three ways:
 

  • By choosing the bullet style's name from the •/123 menu in the Paragraph/Paragraph Attributes tab of the Measurements palette. If you do it this way, the bullet is positioned to the left of the paragraph's first line indent by its Outset value.
  • By choosing an outline style that uses the bullet style from the •/123 menu in the Paragraph/Paragraph Attributes tab of the Measurements palette. If you do it this way, the bullet's position is controlled by the outline style. For more information, see "Working with outline styles."
  • Associate the bullet style with a paragraph style sheet, then apply that style sheet to the text. For more information,

 

How one can work with numbering styles?

A numbering style describes, which number type to choose.

what format it should have, how far it should be from the text, and how it should be aligned.

To create a numbering style, choose Edit > Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles, then choose Numbering Style from the New button in the Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles dialog box. The Edit Numbering Style dialog box displays.

To control how the numbers are styled, choose an option from the Character Style drop-down menu. Choose Inherit from Paragraph to use the paragraph's character formatting for the numbers, or choose a character style sheet to use that character style sheet's formatting.

Choose a number format from the Format drop-down menu.

If you want prefix or suffix characters around the number, enter them in the Prefix and Suffix fields.

If you are inheriting the numbers' formatting from the paragraph, you can change the size of the numbers using the Size field.

The Outset value controls how far each number is from the paragraph. You can specify this distance in Absolute units, or click Relative (in Ems) and specify the value in em spaces. The Relative (in Ems) option may be preferable when you will be using the numbering style with different-sized text.

Note: Numbering alignment and offset works the same way bullet alignment and offset works.

You can apply a numbering style in three ways:
 

  • Choose the numbering style's name from the •/123 menu in the Paragraph/Paragraph Attributes tab of the Measurements palette. If you do it this way, the numbers are positioned to the left of the paragraph's first line indent by its Outset value.
  • Choose an outline style that uses the numbering style from the •/123 menu in the Paragraph/Paragraph Attributes tab of the Measurements palette. If you do it this way, the numbers' positions are controlled by the outline style. For more information, see "Working with outline styles."
  • Associate the numbering style with a paragraph style sheet, then apply that style sheet to the text.

To change the starting number of a paragraph:
 

  • (Windows only): Choose Style > Formats, check Restart Numbering, and enter a starting number in the Start At field.
  • (Mac OS X only): Use the Bullets and Numbers tab of the Measurements palette.

 

How can one work with outline styles?

An outline style defines indents for up to nine indent levels. You can associate a bullet or numbering style with each level. You can also choose whether to include the numbers from previous levels, as you would in some types of outline.

To create an outline style, choose Edit > Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles, then choose Outline Style from the New button in the Bullet, Numbering, and Outline Styles dialog box. The Edit Outline Style dialog box displays.

Edit Outline Style dialog box

Each outline style has nine levels, although you do not have to use all nine. Each level has an indent, which you can specify in the Indent field for that level. Indents are applied cumulatively; if level 1 has a 6 pt indent and level 2 has a 6 pt indent, a paragraph at level 2 is indented by 12 pt.

Outline style indents are applied on top of paragraph indents. If a paragraph has a left indent of 12 pt, and the indent for an outline style's first level is 6 pt, a paragraph at level 1 would visually be indented by 18 pt.

Each level can have a bullet or numbering style, or neither. To assign a bullet or numbering style to a level, choose an option in the Bullet or Numbering Style column for that level.

There are two ways to apply an outline style to text:
 

  • Choose the outline style's name from the •/123 menu in the Paragraph/Paragraph Attributes tab of the Measurements palette.
  • Associate the outline style with a paragraph style sheet, then apply that style sheet to the text.

 

To associate a Bullet, Numbering, or Outline style with a paragraph style sheet

 

  1. Display the Formats tab of the Edit Paragraph Style Sheet dialog box (Edit > Style Sheets > New or Edit).
  2. Choose a bullet, numbering, or outline style from the •/123 drop-down menu.

 

  1. When you apply this style sheet to a paragraph, the bullet, numbering, or outline style will also be applied.
