Does QuarkXPress treat other image formats as its own "Native QuarkXPress objects"?

Applies To:
QuarkXPress 2016

Summary:
QuarkXPress 2016 allows you to convert PDFs, Illustrator, WMF and EPS files to native QuarkXPress objects and to copy items from other applications such as PowerPoint, Illustrator or even InDesign and paste them as native QuarkXPress objects.This allows you to:
Edit logos that only exists as AI, WMF or EPS files.
Update outdated material that exists only as a PDF.
Extract colors and typography from PDF's to use in QuarkXPress.

This results in fully editable Bezier version of vector graphics, embedded images and editable text. Colors and fonts are automatically extracted.
 
Convert existing items to native QuarkXPress objects
You can convert PDF, Illustrator, WMF or EPS files that have been imported into your document to native QuarkXPress objects.
 
 
Paste new items as native QuarkXPress objects
You can add new items into your documents as native QuarkXPress objects using Copy and Paste. Copy items from other applications such as PowerPoint, Illustrator or even InDesign and then paste them as native QuarkXPress objects.

When you copy out of an application and paste it into QuarkXPress as native objects, the result depends on how and what the copying application puts on the clipboard.
 
For example, some applications put vector information only as images on the clipboard or mark their clipboard as private. In this case you will either get an image when you paste as native objects or the option will be grayed out. In these cases, the first method(import the item as PDF and then convert that item to a native QuarkXPress object) will work for you.
