Dear user of QuarkXPress,

Before you ask about potential issues here, may we suggest trying the following five easy steps first:

1) Update to latest version

Make sure to update to the latest version of QuarkXPress first, as your issue might already be fixed there.
( = Still supported; = End-of-life announced, still supported; = End-of-life, unsupported)

QuarkXPress updates are FREE OF CHARGE since version 4.0:
(Example: An update is a minor version jump, e.g. 6 to 6.5 but not 6.5 to 7.
A major version, e.g. v4 to v2015 or v9 to v10 jump is called an upgrade. Upgrades are not free of charge.)


The latest update of QuarkXPress 2017 is:

2) See whether your version of QuarkXPress is supported on your operating system


3) Update to latest printer driver / PPD

We have noticed that a lot of printing problems are caused by old PPDs or printer drivers (e.g. CUPS), especially since QuarkXPress is Universal Binary (version 7.01 and higher).

Make sure that you install a 64-Bit Printer Driver when you use a 64-Bit Operating System.
Visit the website of your printer vendor to find the latest updates.

4) Consult the Virtual Knowledgebase

* Full installer means, you can use this installer to update an existing installation or install fresh. Light installers need an existing installation to be present. So if you reinstall fresh, choose the latest full installer for the major version you want to install. Afterwards use Auto Updater (or download the light installer manually) to update to the latest sub-version.
Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?
