Applies for :- QXP 2019.
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.
