Slogans are edited at the bottom-right of the slogans manager.

 

There are 3 parts to each slogan; sequence, text and graphic (if any).

 

Sequence

Editing a Slogan's Sequence: depending on the type of slogan set, the left part of the Slogan Editor appears differently:

 

In the case of  "cyclical" slogan sets, the sequence is a simple number, modified with a spin edit control.

In the case of "month-day" slogan sets, the sequence is edited using a combo box for the month and a spin edit for the day.

In the case of a "specific date" slogan set, the sequence is edited by selecting a date from a calendar control.

 

Note that the sequence of each Slogan within a Slogan Set is unique.

Text

 

To modify the text in a Slogan, simply type into the slogan editor, shown above.

 

Any underscore character "_" (without the quotes) contained in this string will be replaced by a non-breaking space.

Use the slogan editor pop-up menu to apply formatting to all or parts of the currently-selected slogan.

You can use carriage returns; these will be transformed into "soft-returns". Alternatively you can use the hard and soft returns special characters tokens to make your choice of soft or hard return unambiguous.

All characters are allowed, including Unicode ones such as CJK, Arabic and Hebrew.

 

Graphic

 

You can choose to have a graphic displayed instead of text for each Slogan, using slogan image tokens and selecting any type of graphical file accepted by QuarkXPress as a valid picture box file.

 

 

This Alignment option lets you select the graphic's alignment within the output file's picture box. You can use the Transparent option to specify that the inserted picture is transparent (for black & white and vector images) when using Quark 2015 or above, and you can use the Use Bounding Box option to specify the bounding box option in the QuarkXPress Import dialog used to import PDF files, as shown in the image on the right (only for PDF images, using QuarkXPress 2016 or above)..
