Question about QuarkXPress 5.0 for Mac

1 Answer

QuarkXpress 5.0 exhibits extreme delay to commands.

When working in Quark 5.0, all functions are delayed for as much as 5 seconds. Color Palette window boots and reboots multiple times, tools panel slow to respond to commands. Eventually I can produce what I need but with a great deal of wasted time and frustration. Running Disk Utility does not help.

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.

I am trying to make WYSISWYG PDFs of Mosaic Music which runs on an OS 9 Mac Tower. I was told that QuarkXpress 4.1 might work, but I am not sure that it will. PrinttoPDF didn't work. I am desperate!...

Did you make a picture box, then use the "get picture" function to import the pdf? The first dialogue box you see should have tabs at the bottom, one of which says "color management" and the other, "PDF Import." Click on the latter and you should be all set.

After using my quarkxpress 7.1 everyday for 5 years, this morning it won't launch. I just get the logo screen with whirling color disk. Can you help me resolve this?

It sounds like your preferences file has corrupted.

This solution is for Quark on a Mac. What you could do is go to users then which ever user is the active one then library then preferences then quark then QuarkXPress 7.0 in this folder is a file called "XPress Preferences.prf" move it to the trash and then start up Quark, it should rebuild the file. (Do not empty the trash if it does not work you can replace the file back into the preference folder)

Please note your preferences will be back to default and you will need to reset them.

Hope this helps.

How do I produce a quark file with measurements

Use the control Palette at the bottom of the screen. Use the open arrow, set your origin, and click on the item you want to know about. At the bottom of the screen in a long thin rectangular palette is everything you need to know about that image in regards to placement and position.
