4.1 Loading a DTD

  1. 1 Launch QuarkXPress with Atomik Xport enabled

If you have not yet successfully installed Atomik Xport, please refer to installation instructions in the Getting Started Guide for details of how to achieve this.

  1. 2 Confirm that the Atomik Xport menu is visible
  2. 3 From the File menu select ‘Open’
  3. Locate the QuarkXPress project ‘Tutorial2’ from the Tutorials folder (/Tutorials/Tutorial2) and select it.

On OS X the Tutorials Folder can be found on the Macintosh HD in: Library/Documentation/Atomik Xport QuarkXPress 4.5

On Windows the Tutorials Folder can be found in the Shared Documents folder (on XP) or in the Public Documents folder (Vista).

  1. 5 Click ‘Open‘. If you recieve a message warning you of a conflict choose ‘Keep Project Settings’

You should now see the document below. The next step is to configure the Atomik Xport Preferences to tell Atomik Xport where it should store and locate its ruleset files. If you have just done Tutorial 1, then this will already be correct and you can skip this step.
