How to convert a Quark 5.0 (PC) file to a PDF?

Hello,

I'm trying to convert a Quark Xpress document (I have a PC) to a PDF, but Quark does not seem to allow me to save a document that way. Adobe will not recognize any of the Quark documents as well. What is the best way to do this? It should be simple, right?

How do I convert a QuarkXpress 5 document to QuarkXpress 10?


Quark has a free document converter on their Web site which will convert a QuarkXPress 5 file into a format that can be opened directly by QuarkXPress 10. Basically any QuarkXPress documents older then version 7 can be run through this converter to make them compatible with version 10.

This document can not be :opened by this version of Quark XPress [16]


Sometimes an invalid control character snuck into Quark 4.1 and the file would quit performing. I found I could edit and save it as a Quark 3,2 file and reopem it in 4.0.

Error 1720. Trying to install Quark 6.1 on Windows 7


I definitively solved this problem. Follow these steps:
1) Install first Quark Xpress 6.1 on a Windows XP PC.
2) Copy the entire directory of installed files (Normally c:\program files\quark) on a pen drive.
3) Install Quark Xpress 6.1 on your Windows 7 PC until the installation stops with 1720 error.
4) Abort the installations, then copy the Quark directory stored on your pendrive in c:\programs x 86 directory overwriting the existing one.

This way Xpress 6.1 works perfectly on a Windows 7 PC. Guaranteed!

That when i try to open my project it says that this document cannot be opened yby this version of Quark Xpress - please help!!


This is a version problem. Not sure what version you're using but you're going to have to go at least one version higher and save down. Quark's kind of a pain about this. If you're in 4 and you have a 7 file, you need to save it down from 7 to 6 to 5 to 4. It's not at all easy or convenient.

Quark xpress 6.5 crashing


Try updating Quark first and reopen the document, if the problem persists, remove the preference file - this may have become corrupt.
Often a Quark crash is related to corrupt fonts, or fonts sharing the same id number as others already on the machine. Do you use a font manager such as Suitcase?

I have a msg error code Quarkxpress 7


Sorry I only just saw your posst so this may be far too late, but at least for future reference: -36 is one of the oldest and most ubiquitous errors in the Mac world.

It's name is "ioErr" and the rather obtuse explanation for it is "I/O error (bummers)" ie, there was some kind of input/output error.

This should mean that XPress is trying to work with a corrupt file.

The most likely suspects, in rough order, are a text or picture file that XPress just tried to import; an auxiliary file such as a font, profile or XPress Xtension; a text or picture file already imported; the XPress document you are working with; your XPress Preferences file; XPress itself.

Working with XPress since version 2 on Apple system 6 I have never seen any guaranteed cure for a -36 error but there are three basic remedies, none of which is by any means certain.

Any corrupt file just might be revived by Copying it to another location.

If the file seems to be an XPress document and can be Opened at all, there is a better chance of reviving it by first making a new, blank XPress document containing nothing more than the one obligatory blank pagewith the same page size as the suspect had. Saving, Closing and re-Opening the blank document alongside the suspect, setting both documents to Thumbnails view then manually Dragging each page from the suspect into the blank will essentially cause XPress to look at what it's doing, rather than assuming that all the components are workable. Fairly obviously, it may be safer to Drag one page at a time Saving, Closing and re-Opening the "rescue" file between Drags.

Again if the file seems to be an XPress document and can be Opened at all, there is a better chance of reviving it by working with a Copy, deleting either half of its contents - whether whole pages or items on a single page - Saving the remainder, Closing re-Opening, testing and perhaps again deleting half the contents…

Good luck
