How to import external resources in a Project Job Jacket in QuarkXPress 10

Summary

In QuarkXPress 9, there is an option Collaboration Setup. The Collaboration Setup dialog box (File menu) includes project-wide collaboration settings. These settings are used for:

• Establishing links to composition layouts in external projects.

• Viewing information about shared composition layouts in the active project.

• Sharing Job Jackets.

• Importing text or pictures into the shared content library.

• Removing text or pictures imported via the Collaboration Setup dialog box.

• Specifying how often the active project is updated with any changes to linked content or Job Jackets settings.
