The commands described in this topic let you synchronize a page's content between the various layouts in a layout family. For example, if you create a table of contents on page 2 of the vertical layout for the iPad, you can use the commands described here to automatically turn that table of contents into shared content and copy it to page 2 of the horizontal layout for the iPad and/or the vertical layout for the Galaxy Tab. You may need to reposition and/or resize the content in the other layouts, but these commands automate the process of getting the content to the appropriate pages in each device and orientation, and they help ensure that that content stays consistent on all of the pages where it appears.
For more information about shared content, see "Working with shared content" in A Guide to QuarkXPress . To understand how the commands described below work, you must first understand how shared content works.
Item > Copy to Other Layouts : This command turns all selected boxes into shared content and places copies of them on the same page of other layouts in the layout family. The submenu for this command lets you be more specific about how this copy is performed:
- Same Position : Puts the copies in the same position relative to the upper-left corner of the page, if possible. This option copies items to all other layouts in the layout family.
- Use Relative Positioning : Puts the copies in the same position relative to the page size and shape overall. This option copies items to all other layouts in the layout family.
