BTW, you guys in NA pronounce it Quoork. We, however, pronounce it quaa-ark. It's the sound of an Aussie crow, flying overhead with its plaintive cry.

A much-loved (now deceased) variety show host here from the 70s, Graham Kennedy, was banned from the box for a period for uttering it, as a crow would, to express something else. Innocent times, I guess...

From webster's online:

Quark:

any of several elementary particles that are postulated to come in pairs (as in the up and down varieties) of similar mass with one member having a charge of +2⁄3 and the other a charge of −1⁄3 and are held to make up hadrons

Ahm just sayin.

Just a tip that I'm sure most of you know.

Had to use this last week when I did a project Inluding a 9x12 folder, letterhead, business card and envelope.

With the page size tool you can setup 4 different page sizes for each and keep the whole project in one file then export the pdf's as needed.

I know it's pretty old news but it's one of the best things about the CS5 upgrade that I've worked with.

I digress back to my own post here to cite a couple of more examples with this tip.

We have 2 Kamoris here, a 26 and a 30 inch. I set up a ctp template here with 2 different master page sizes and on certain jobs, we can easily bring in imposed PDF flats on the same file for each press. A big job may run on 2 different presses so it's very convenient. We don't use preps much except for bigger books.

Also, I get called upon to make up black and white ads for a clients magazine which could be 1/4 page, 1/2 page etc. like maybe 5 or so per issue. I just make them in 1 file and change the page size for each and whack out the PDFs as needed.

I really like this feature.





Funny how none of our clients have sent us jobs in this format though.
