Lost items in Quark 6.1

Help! I was creating a document in 6.1, and I saved it down to 5.0. When I went to open the document again, I lost both text and images. I can use the command GET PICTURE to refresh the images, but I can't figure out what happened to the text. The text boxes have the red X box that normally denotes overflow text or a box that is too small for the text. I have tried selecting the text and changing it in a number of ways (size, font, leading, etc.) but it doesn't seem to do anything. No text shows up or anything. I tried opening the document in 5.0 as well, and there is no change there, either. Naturally, the document was almost complete, and now I have a bunch of blank text boxes. Any ideas what happened or how I can get the text back? Thanks in advance for any assistance. rosebud714

Hi, I have QuarkXpress 6.5 on my computer at home and I need to open some files I created in QuarkXPress 8.1 at my former company. I have moved overseas and I'm trying to print out some things for my...

There's really no direct way to open an 8.1 file in 6.5. Quark doesn't make it easy to do these things. The only thing you can do is save 8 down to 7 down to 6, but there's a lot of new stuff between the versions, so if you had the access to do that, you'd most likely lose formatting and information.

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.

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

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.
