QuarkXPress 2015 New Feature: Inline Tables (Excel Import Enhancements)

Feature Description: 

QuarkXPress 2015 introduces new fast Inline Table support to insert a table data from Microsoft Excel workbook  (XLSX format only).  With this new Inline Tables you can also apply Table Styles created in  QuarkXPress.  

Supported Excel Format: Microsoft Excel 2007 or later (xlsx format only) 

Table editing: The Inline Tables data can be edited only in source format, which is in .xlfile linked to the table. So, for editing the table data or column widths, you have to open linked Excel workbook  to make changes. However, Table  Styles  can be edited in QuarkXPress once created or imported formatting from source workbook. 

Table Updates: You can use Utilities>Usage to update the table data similar to image updates. 

Table Styles: Please note that the new Table Styles are available only for Inline Tables. These table styles cannot be applied to legacy table model available in QuarkXPress. 

You can create Inline tables in two ways: 

1. You can draw a text box and go to Item menu and select “Insert Inline Table”. It brings up Excel  “Table  Link”  dialog with a check  box ticked for  Inline  Table  by default.  Then choose  Excel  data  to  import  a  table  with  formats  or  without  formatting.  The  options are explained below. 

2. Alternately, you can also select Table tool and draw a box to populate table properties (same  as  legacy),  and  then  choose  Link  to External  Data,  select  XLSX  file  you  want  to import and tick the check box for Inline Table. This will create a text box automatically to insert an Inline Table. 

Inline Table import options: 

• You  must  select  Content  Tool  and  place the cursor in a  text  box  to  insert  an  Inline Table. If you use Table  Tool, it will create a text box automatically. 

Table Style, you can select a pre-defined table style to apply to the data/table you are  importing  from  Excel  Workbook.  If  you  do  not  select  any  Table  Style  it  will generate  table  style  and  corresponding  paragraph  styles  automatically  based  on supported formatting in QuarkXPress. 

Include  Formats  will  allow  you  to  retain  the  formatting  from  Excel  Workbook and  generates  inline table style  to  match the formatting. If you select an existing Table Style, the option for Include Formats is ignored. 

Include  Geometry  will  allow  you  to  maintain  geometry  (column  widths  only) when imported table as Inline Table. 

Fit  To  Box,  when  this  check  box  is  enabled  the  table  fits  to  the  text  box automatically  and  when  you  resize  the  text  box  the  table  columns  are  spread proportionately to fit to the box.  If Fit To Box is combined with  Include Geometry, the  Inline  Table  fits  to  the  box  by  keeping  proportionate  column  widths  from source Excel data. 

• Other  options  in  Table  Link  dialog  are  same  as  previous  versions  when  selected Excel Spreadsheet  to import  table.
