Question about Quark Academic QuarkXPress 6.1 for PC

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.

How i can see the qxd extension file

this is Quark Express file. So to view this file, you can use it.

You can download a trial version here--

You can create a PDF file from a Quark document using Acrobat. The desktop version of Acrobat comes with Acrobat Distiller which can convert the Quark file to PDF.

According to the Adobe Create PDF Online web site (, native Quark (qxd) files do not appear to be supported for online conversion. However, the service does support PostScript (.ps) files. If you can save your Quark file as a PostScript file, then you can use the Create PDF Online service.

Hope this helps.

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.

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

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.
