Cursor Key increments/decrements Enhancement in QuarkXPress 2017

Applies to- QuarkXPress 2017 

Summary: QuarkXPress’s Measurement palette is now enhanced to support cursor key increments/decrements with arrow keys on keyboard. With this enhancement, you can easily make minor adjustments for various attributes with arrow keys on the keyboard. The modifier keys will additionally support switching higher/lower values.

How it works:
  1. Simply use the up/down arrow keys to increase or decrease the values when you focus on any input values. You can use the tab key to jump from one to another input field on the measurement palate.
  2. You can use “Shift” key for higher increments/decrements and “Alt” key for smaller increments/decrements.
  3. In addition to Measurement palette, all the dialogs support this feature.
