  • Adjusting Column Sizes

    I am trying to paginate yellow pages and we use a system called Diad to create handoffs to put into Quark.

    I have all the Diad template set up for the hand off to be colum width 174pts. I have a new Quark Template set up to the same specs and when I go to get text I get a message that reads:

    Warning Column Width Difference: Document Column Width 362pt Handoff Column Width 174pt.

    That is telling me that my template in Quark is off. Its suppose to be 174 pts. So I checked the Master Guides settings and they are to our new specs.
    I am not sure where it is getting the 362 pts from.
    It is almost like the information I "import" is reading across the page instead of stopping at the side of a column.

    Could there be some easy explanation as to why anyone thinks this could be happening?

    out of curiosity, what do you find weird about their output formats? What is an example of something that you find wrong with the software? Just curious as I'm considering checking it out.

    Your link does not work.

    I wouldn't hire you if you've never used InDesign.
