    Release the killbots!

    Wasn't there a bigger green one that came out occasionally, a super kill?

      I think it was random. I used to hit command-option-control-shift for ages until I would see him. Don't tell my former boss.

        Yup The big green guy with the bazooka came out after doing the superkill at least 4 or 5 times. You had to draw a box and select it, then it was shift+option+command+k

          The first time I ever released that particular Kraken it was by mistake, and it scared the crap out of me, I didn't know what the sound was.

            There's a less-impressive alien in InDesign. Open a document, call up the print dialogue box, hit the Save Preset button and name the new preset Friendly Alien. Then click the big P down in in the lower-left corner.

              Thanks, <b>. I finally found something that Quark does better than InDesign.

                I always liked the key command to tab a line to the right in the text box instead of having to actually set up the tab. Aaaaaand that's about it!

                  It's a little obscure, but I used to make extensive use of Quark's XPress tag import function at the newspaper where I once worked. Using regular expressions and AppleScript, I could automate the formatting of entire news pages and complex infographics like weather maps based on structured wire service data using nothing more than a simple text file that could subsequently be imported into Quark XPress. In other words, reducing a couple of hours of work down to less than a couple of minutes. InDesign also has a tagged text import function, but it's more verbose, cumbersome and less capable.
