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'

You should be able to find a quark folder containing the preference file at username/library/preferences/quark. Move this folder to another location like your desktop and look for any other file that says quark within the preferences folder. After your sure you got everything moved from the preferences that's quark related start up quark, the program should recreate the preference files you moved to another location and start successfully. Now just delete the old preference files you moved to your desktop.

Want to convert Quark 7.3 file to Quark 4.1 so it can be read by InDesign.


Thats not possible.
QuarkXPress 7 would allow you to downsave to a QuarkXPress 6 document but not to QuarkXPress 4.

you would have to open the document in QuarkXPress 6 then save to version 5, then open the same in QuarkXPress 5 and then downsave to 4

MAC/QuarkXpress files


Hi

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.

Imac / illustrator10


According to something I read in another forum:
Use migration assistant (in utilities) to copy over Illustrator 10 via firewire from your G4 to your imac. This is the only thing that might work without upgrading to a newer version of Illustrator. 

I'm planning on trying it with both Illustrator 10 and Indesign 2.0 - Photoshop 7 won't go at all no matter what one tries according to what I've read. I'll be upgrading to CS3 for Photoshop. No choice.
