Linking text boxes in Quark XPress 8

I have attempted to use the linking tool to flow text from one box to another, but nothing happens (in older versions, I immediately got an arrow showing me the linking path).  When I go to the Help section on linking boxes, it tells me that I have to select two (or more) text boxes, but I have not found a way to "select" more than one box at a time.  Holding the shift key, which is what I did in previous versions, does not do anything.

    I have the same problem. I select the two boxes with the item tool, then use the linking tool to try and get them to connect, but nothing happens. No linking.

I purchased Quark Xpress back in 1990 or so, and the installation discs were the old 3 1/4 discs. I paid for updaters, and at updater 6.1, I still have the Quark CD, but some of the original Quark Xpress...


I continue to be amazed that no body has found THE elegant solution I did. As a matter of fact I am using Quark 4.1 on Window 7, I used it on Vista (where it performed better than Vista) and on XP back at least to 98 or perhaps 95. My original install required burning a floppy (good luck with that today) for the registration. At some point, I discovered it was truly portable and simply copied the installed Quark directory to a new location (anywhere) on each new system. I dragged out a shortcut onto the desktop to the executable on every new platform. It still runs fine on this 64bit Window 7. Has not blown up yet. Something I wish I could say about other software. The only rub I found is that MS monkeyed about with associations (which worked fine in XP & Vista) and I have yet to be able to set.QXDs to Quark when I even set .QXTs to Quark.Windows 7 automatically served up In-Design as being the first (default) association in my programs list. Something I did not accept. I even tried to rewrite the registry in an attempt to make it work.

In fact, if you look into the .DLLs under Windows, you may find versions of the same .DLL that can run under 64, 32 and 16 bit environments. I suspect it will work under Windows 8 if MS doesn't leave working procedures ALONE!

Linking text boxes


Step 1 - Locate the page where you want the text linking to begin. Select the Link tool (second from the bottom on the tool palette--it looks like a chain link).

Step 2 - Click on the box you want linked. The icon will change to look like the links of a chain. Click on the mouse; you will see a moving, broken (dashed) line around the text box.

Step 3 - Go to the text box that is going to be next in the link. Place the cursor in the box and click on it. You will know the boxes have been linked by the thick black line extending from the first of the linked boxes to the second. Continue to link boxes until you have come to the end of your text. Click onto another icon on the toolbar to leave the "link" feature.

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!

Open Quark 6.5 doc "freezes" when I add a page via Page:Insert


Please make sure that the "Automatic text box" option is unchecked whenever you create a new project to avoid the addition of the pages

Solutions (2) Start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Tell it that you want to install a Windows XP application.
Tell it that the software to be installed is on a CD-ROM.
