Anchored objects, in QuarkXPress, are objects that are placed inside a textbox, and behave a text elements. Usually, as is the case in the example below, the anchored object is a textbox that you wish to move (or flow) along as the text to the left changes.
Depending on the value of the [1*8d] token, the anchored textbox moves, always keeping a fixed distance from the number that has replaced the [1*8d] token.
To anchor an object in QuarkXPress:
1.Create the object outside of the destination textbox.
2.Switch to selection mode.
3.Cut or copy the object to the clipboard (CTRL+X).
4.Switch to text edit mode.
5.Paste the object as text at the text position where you wish it to appear.
You can also insert lines and picture boxes and, with QuarkXPress version 8 and above, grouped boxes.
