    In order to make a formatted book with many illustrations can it be done in Ulysses or do I need to import all the chapters (about 25 of them) into QuarkXpress in order to place pictures where I want them and to get the formatting the way I want it including the correct typeface? I would of course rather stay with Ulysses through the finish of the project but it doesn't seem possible as I cannot do a WYSIWYG as I can in QuarkXpress? I am using Ulysses 2.1 with MacOSX 10.6.8 on an iMac.

    You should be able to do all necessary formatting (e.g., font face, font size, paragraph spacing) in the Ulysses Exporters. Also, exporting footnotes should work just fine (in the RTF and PDF Exporters, the Word Exporter doesn't support footnotes). However, Ulysses' image export is rather simplistic, as it places images at the position where you inserted them. An exception is the WebExport, which allows for more sophisticated image placement, but I guess you're not looking for HTML export, right?
    I think the easiest solution would be to export your documents to RTF and then import those files into QuarkXpress to do the final adjustments.
