Yes, max osx 10.4.11 and quark 6.5


Below is a standad mac fix-all and a quark fix-all but it could be something else that has happened, after looking on forums there appears to be a problem with this type of problem which quark never bothered fixing in 6.5. I would also instal the quark update from 6.5 to 6.52 from http://www.quark.com/support/downloads/Details.aspx?fid=122 before you do this it may correct it.

Mac Fix-All
Another thing I would do is go to the applications folder and then the utilities folder open up disk utility once opened click on your hard drive and then click on repair disk permissions and let it complete the verification and repair (it could take 20 minutes or more) depending upon the size of your hard drive. A lot of people do not this but to keep your machine running efficiently it should be done on a monthly basis.

Quark Fix-All
It could be that your quark preferences have corrupted, I would go to your users folder then go into the library folder, then the preferences folder and then the quark folder within the quark folder there should be a file called "XPress Preferences.prf" move this to the trash (But do not delete it yet). When you open quark next it will recreate the preference file and hopefully that will sort it out. If this has corrected the problem you can then delete the file in the trash. Please note that you will have to reset your preferences once you open Quark again.

Hope this helps in some way.

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.

Some Quark 6.1 files crash when I open them on my Mac OS X 10.6.2. Can you help? Thanks!


Not sure if this is exactly a solution, but usually these crashes are font issues. You could try deactivating fonts in your Suitcase, or font manager, then opening the files. Quark has a hard time with font conflicts, and usually just crashes without letting you know that was the problem.

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?

Color matching


If this is a print problem and not just a screen issue, here's what I suggest.

In Illustrator, double click the colour swatch for the Pantone Book colour you are using and obtain the CMYK values.

In Quark, instead of using the same Pantone Book colour, create a new Process colour with the same CMYK values as the Illustrator swatch.
