The new feature maintains Total Control over Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean Layouts.


QuarkXPress lets layout artists work with East Asian typographical concepts such as vertical story text, hanging characters, punctuation character width handling, phonetic text reading (rubi), font sets, character grids, grouped characters, and intelligent font mapping.


QuarkXPress includes deep and wide support for East Asian typography. You can combine vertical and horizontal story text in the same layout, and group sets of characters (such as acronyms) to flow properly in vertical stories.



You can also:


  • Enable and disable East Asian Typography features in the QuarkXPress Preferences.
  • Control the width of full-width punctuation characters depending on where they fall relative to the beginning of the line, the middle of the line, the end of the line, and other punctuation characters.
  • Maintain perfectly aligned margins with predefined classes and sets of hanging characters, or configure your own classes and sets for different uses.
  • Apply phonetic reading text (rubi) to text, and even automatically pull rubi text from the system dictionary for some languages.
