In QuarkXPress and QuarkXPress Passport software, the Index palette allows you to add all occurrences of a word to your index, and to add words in reverse order. For example, you can add all occurrences of Doe, Jane. You can also change an index entry’s level using the Edit button in the Index palette, and specify a default character style sheet for cross-references.

To prevent your chapters from being inadvertently modified or deleted, books and chapters can now be made read-only (Mac OS) or locked (Windows). To prevent chapters from being inadvertently renumbered, a document can be added as a chapter to only one book. Additionally, the Synchronize feature now lets you choose the items you want to synchronize. You can also specify character style sheets when defining a list.
