Getting rid of PDF logs?

Postby DeathSquadDesign » 04 Dec 2007, 11:27

Is there an option to turn off the PDF logs when I export something? Are they necessary for anything? Any help would be great!

Thanks! I send a lot of low-res email proofs to ad clients and one less thing on my desktop that I have to throw out is helpful.

Getting rid of PDF logs?

Postby contentedquarker » 26 Sep 2013, 16:30

I've been putting up with this forever. I always have to manually delete the PDF .log file after creating a PDF using Quark's Export to PDF. As an experiment, I checked my preferences in Quark 7.5 on my G4, which always creates log files. I had "Preferences - PDF - Error Settings - Log Errors" checked all these years! I unchecked it and exited Quark. Upon restarting, Quark 7.5 no longer makes PDF .log files on my G4!Now, having recently got Quark 9.5 up and running on an Intel Mac, I noticed that it also creates .log files when a PDF is made using Export. I checked Preferences, and "Preferences - PDF - Error Settings - Log Errors" is UNCHECKED. I tried checking it, then unchecking it and restarting Quark 9.5. Nope. It makes .log files, even with that preference unchecked. Any suggestions? I use "PDF Style - Print Medium Quality" with both versions of Quark.

Think this issue is fixed in the 9.5.3.1 update.

I am also using 9.5.3.1 and have the same issues. No matter whether "log errors" is checked or unchecked every pdf I export has a log alongside it. As a "fix" I created a log folder under "Error Settings" and at least now all the log files are stored in the same place out of the way from my working jobs.

I'm using 9.5.2, and I set up the workaround you suggested. I turned on "Log Errors" and "Use Log Folder". I created a folder inside my Utilities folder called "zzz log files created by Quark". At least the destination folder no longer has the .log file. Now, Quark not only creates a .log file, it also creates a .ps file. I tried turning off "Log Errors" and Quark does the same thing, with, now, two files created. Two files to hunt down later and delete. Sigh.
