Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

MAC/QuarkXpress files I work for a school. i have a MAC G4 with OSX 10.3.9. i had OSX 10.2 until one of our IT guys upgraded it for me. right after that, Classic wouldn't open. ( i have such an old version of Photoshop that i still need classic). i was encountering other problems and getting error messages so IT decided to restore my mac. they brought me a thumb drive and said to move everything that i wanted to keep to the thumb drive. i did. then they discovered that the only thing wrong with my mac was the temporary file had been removed. so... everything was taken off the thumb drive and put back on the mac. Now...some of my quark 6.1 files open and some dont. i get a message saying "There is no default application specified to open the document 'program'. There is 2 buttons to choose from "cancel" or "choose application". If I "choose application" it takes me to the menu to choose an application to open it with but i am unsucessful in being able to find an application to open it with. I also have the same problem with the Microsoft "Word" files and some jpegs. Are all of these files lost forever or is there something i can do to fix them? Thanks....

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.

Hi Bobby
You will need to get an OS X installation DVD. Try eBay.Don't go for anything lower than 10.4 (Tiger)10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) should run fine on this machine.Don't bother with 10.7 or 10.8

My Quark v6.1 does not launch. Start-up window appears and extensions window comes up but after that program does not complete launch. Running iBook G4 with OSX 10.3.9.


Please Navigate to HDD>>Users>>Home User>>Library>>Preferences>>Quark>>QuarkXPress 6.1 folder and delete all the files present in that folder.

Also check if there is any Preferences folder under HDD>>Applications>>QuarkXPress 6.1 folder, if yes then delete that folder as well.

Now launch QuarkXPress and check the results.

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

Upgrade macOSX 101


If you have OS X 10.1.5, you would have to do a fresh install of 10.5 because you can only upgrade to 10.5 from 10.3, anything before you would have to archive your data and do a clean install.

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.
