QuarkXPress 2015 New Feature: Content Variables

Feature Description: 

QuarkXPress 2015 introduces following text variables that work in all layout types – Print, eBooks and App Studio. 

Content Variable types: 

Predefined  Variables  –  These  text  variables  are  predefined  and  available  in  every project  opened/saved  in  QuarkXPress  2015,  and  you  can  insert  these  in  text  flow without  defining  the  content  source.  Following  screen  grab  shows  default  text variables  you  can  use  straightaway  from  Content  Variable  palette  which  can  be invoked from Windows menu: 

Further  to  above  pre-defined  variables,  you  can  create  following  additional  text  type variables.  You  need  to  choose  New  variable  from  the  Content  Variable  palette  and select these variable types from a popup provided. 

Custom  Variables,  with  this  option  you  can  combine  a  text  string  with  other  pre-defined variables to make a combination. 

Running  Header,  this  variable  type  allows  you  to  choose  source  data  within  the document  by  referring  to  a  paragraph  or  character  style  sheet.  This  variable  type can  be  applied  in  the  master  page  so  that  the  running  headers  are  automatically updated.  For  example,  a left  side  page  can  have  book title  and on  right  side  page  can have Chapter/Section title. 

Page  Reference,  this  variable  is  used  to  create  a  reference  to  an  existing  layout  object  using Anchors (existing feature)  and  allows you to refer the object elsewhere in  the  document  with  the  page  number  where  the  referred  object  is  present.  You have  a  check box to generate  hyperlink  automatically for  such  page  references. 

The hyperlinks are exported in PDF output too. Also, the referred page number will auto update  if  the  object  with Anchor  is  moved  or  flowed  to  different  page  due  to  layout or content changes. 

Static Text, with this you can create a simple static text variable that can be inserted throughout  the document.  For example,  you want  to refer a  company name across the document consistently and want to make any changes to it in one go, this variable can be useful.
