The first place to look is your permissions. Open your utilities folder in your applications folder and launch **** utility. Click on your hard drive icon and click the repair disk permissions button. It may take a few moments to run. That might solve your problem.

If that does not solve the problem. Open library/preferences/Quark. Move the pref' doc in that folder onto you desktop (don't trash yet) try relaunching the app. If still not working trash the pref' and try again.

If all that fails I'm afraid you'll have to re-install the app'

By chance did you save docs to external backup, if not do so and continue to do so.

it would better if you try a reinstall of the programme, better still download latest update, hopefully that will resolve. Glitch

While downloading a ''this attachment may contain an application'' message appears. When the document is opened an invitation to sign up for ''iWork'' or ''Mail'' appears. The attachment will not display....

If you aren't sure the source for this message, please dont open, since it might be a phishing/trojan/virus that could attack your computer.

and if you are sure that it is from trusted source, just confirm with him/her once again about the attachment because the message seems like some hacking trojan.

MAC/QuarkXpress files


If you highlight (one click) one of the Quark, JPEG or Word files, when you are on the desktop and then go to File - Get Info a window should open for the file you selected.

In the Info window about halfway down there should be the text "Opens with", in here you can select the application to open your document (most applications should be found in the Applications folder)

Also if you press the Change All button this will set the files to open up in the selected application the next time you click on one.

If your video card was not working correctly your problem would be evident in other applications as well, I suspect you have a software problem on the computer, most likely with the OS 10 software and possibly a conflict with the version of Quark you are running.
