    Computer [co] QuarkXPress on OS X Mavericks and Windows 8.1

    Locked Reply Contact

    If you are planning to upgrade to Mavericks (aka Mac OS X 10.9), please read also this:
    http://www.planetquark.com/2013/11/05/best-practise-how-to-safely-test-os-x-mavericks-before-using-it-for-production/

    Supported platforms

    QuarkXPress 10

    QuarkXPress 10 is officially supported under

    Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) - needs at least 10.0.1,
    Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and
    Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)

    Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit)  on Non-High DPI displays - needs at least 10.0.1,
    Windows 8
    (32-bit and 64-bit) and

    Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)

    For Windows 8.1 on High DPI displays support we are still investigating when QuarkXPress 10 can support that.

    Please note that though 10.0.2 improves performance in most areas – in many areas even beyond QuarkXPress 9 – Quark is working on an update to improve performance even more. We plan to release this in Q1 2014.

    QuarkXPress 9
    QuarkXPress 9 is officially supported under

    Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) - needs at least 9.5.4,
    Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) - needs at least 9.3.1,
    Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion),
    Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard),
    Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) - only 9.5.3.1 or lower (9.5.4 and higher will not support Leopard anymore),
    (QuarkXPress 9 requires a Mac Intel under OS X)

    Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit) - needs at least 9.5.1,
    Windows 7
    (32-bit and 64-bit),
    Windows Vista and
    Windows XP (until
    April 8, 2014, as MS is ending support of Windows XP then).

    QuarkXPress 9.5.4.1 fixes the issue of the virtually invisible mouse cursor on newer Apple hardware.

    QuarkXPress 8

    QuarkXPress 8 is officially supported under

    Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard),
    Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard),
    Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger),
    (QuarkXPress 8 supports Power-PC based Macs as well as Mac Intels)

    Windows 7
    (32-bit and 64-bit),
    Windows Vista and
    Windows XP
    (until April 8, 2014, as MS is ending support of Windows XP then).

    QuarkXPress 8 is not supported on OS X Lion, OS X Mountain Lion, OS X Mavericks or Windows 8.x.

    QuarkXPress 7
    Info about QuarkXPress 7 here: http://forums.quark.com/t/18998.aspx 

    Important note

    If you plan to use a version of QuarkXPress on an unsupported operating system, please test this intensively beforehand, as you are using it on your own risk.

    Please note that Quark offers technical support and help solely for supported combinations (= version of QuarkXPress and version of operating system).
    Though that does not mean that unsupported combinations won't run, it means that Quark didn't test these combinations and therefore cannot offer any help for unsupported combinations.

    Should you need assistance or want Quark to help investigate an issue, please stay on supported combinations. Thank you!

    Regards
    Matthias
