QuarkXPress 2019 adds new tools on measurement palette for easy and quick access to create complex shapes with the combination of two or more shapes
How it works
Intersection: Keeps only the overlapping areas of the selected items. The color of the back most item is applied to the new single item.
Union: Combines all the selected item into one box, keeping both the overlapping and non-overlapping areas. The color of the back most item is applied to the new single item.
Difference: Strips the front most item from the selected items and leaves only the overlapping areas.
Reverse Difference: Strips the back most item from the selected items and leaves only the overlapping areas.
Exclusive Or: Leaves all the shapes intact but cuts out overlapping areas. It creates two bezier points at each location where any two lines originally intersected. It is used to create a 'see-through' effect with overlapping items.
Split All Paths: Separates the items from each other until every box within a complex box has been split. If you use this command on a shape that has a hole in it, the hole becomes solid.
Join End Points: Two end points (one on each path) need to be placed on the top (or within 6 points) of each other. Merges the two points into one corner point.
