Quark picture files

Can anyone help??????
Quite often I have to work from home. So I have to copy work to an external HD. When I open any quark files from the external all the picture links are missing so I have to go through and re-link the picture files. Any ideas as to why this is happening???????

Since you're copying your Quark file to an external HD, I assume that you're also copying the image files? What you should do before copying to the external HD to work on the file at home is under the File Menu, use the 'Collect for Output' feature, which may take a while depending on the size of your file, number of images, etc., but then you can use the Quark file from the xternal hd, and back and forth to your computer without having to relink the picture files all the time.

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.

Quark won't open file


This is most likely a version problem. Quark 6.5 won't open any file from a newer version (Like Quark 7 or 8)

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!

When I try to open my Quark 6.5 the icon spins but Quark will not open. I turned off suitcase but Quark still won't open.


Please Navigate to HDD>>Users>>Home User>>Library>>Preferences>>Quark>>QuarkXPress 6.5 folder and delete all the files present in that folder.

Also check if there is any Preferences folder under HDD>>Applications>>QuarkXPress 6.5 folder, if yes then delete that folder as well.

Now launch QuarkXPress and check the results.

This 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 6.0 (or may say 6.5) in this folder is a file called "XPress Preferences.prf" move it to the trash (Do not empty the trash if it does not work you can replace the file back into the preference folder) and then start up Quark, it should rebuild the file.

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

Hope this helps.

Quark 6.5 error code 10660


Just open the file once and save it and it should work.

You can also try adding a .qxp extension to it and then try opening the file

Join a seperate quark page to my main quark project


Trash yorr Quark Preferences and restart. Try opening 2 new documents.
If you can do that, the problem is not Quark. It is the file you are working with.
