QuarkXPress includes a preference to compress .SWF files on export. To export a compressed .SWF file, follow these steps:


  1. Open your Interactive layout and go to QuarkXPress > Preferences
  2. Under Interactive, select SWF.
    • If you are running QuarkXPress 8, check the Compress SWF checkbox.
    • If you are running QuarkXPress 7, click on the Default Options button and select the Compression tab in the Export Options dialog. Then check the Compress SWF checkbox.


Note: You can also reduce the JPEG Quality at export. This will decrease the size of the .SWF file.
