Planning to use macOS High Sierra or Windows 10? Read first

Hi all,

I have extracted the "support by operating system" section out of the platform support FAQs:

Version by operating system (QuarkXPress 8 to 2017)
If you are planning to use the following operating system, here are the QuarkXPress versions that have been officially supported (or still are) on it:

Mac OS X / macOS
  • Using OS X :arrow:Tiger (10.4)? QuarkXPress 8 was supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:Leopard (10.5)? QuarkXPress 8 & 9 (up to 9.5.3.1) were supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:Snow Leopard (10.6)? QuarkXPress 8 & 9 were supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:Lion (10.7)? QuarkXPress 9 & 10 (up to 10.2.1) were supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:Mountain Lion (10.8)? QuarkXPress 9, 10 & QuarkXPress 2015 are/were supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:Mavericks (10.9)? QuarkXPress 9, 10, 2015 & QuarkXPress 2016 are/were supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:Yosemite (10.10)? QuarkXPress 10, 2015, 2016 & QuarkXPress 2017 are/were supported on this OS.
  • Using OS X :arrow:El Capitan (10.11)? QuarkXPress 2015, 2016 & 2017 are/were supported on this OS.
  • Using macOS :arrow:Sierra (10.12)? QuarkXPress 2015, 2016 & 2017 are supported on this OS.
  • Using macOS :arrow:High Sierra (10.13)? QuarkXPress 2016 & 2017 are supported on this OS.

NB: We have not made a decision yet whether QX2015 will be officially supported on High Sierra. QX2015 runs well on High Sierra with some minor cosmetic issues.

Windows (32 bit)
  • Using Windows :arrow:XP (32 bit)? QuarkXPress 8 & 9 were supported on this OS.
  • Using Windows :arrow:Vista (32 bit)? QuarkXPress 8 & 9 were supported on this OS.

  • Using Windows :arrow:8.1 (32 bit)? QuarkXPress 10 was supported on this OS.
  • Using Windows :arrow:10 (32 bit)? We will not certify any version of QuarkXPress for the 32-bit version of Windows 10 (or higher). Please use the 64-bit flavor of Windows 10 instead.

How to create yourself a possibility to downgrade OS X if needed

And – as written in the other post – "not supported" does not necessarily mean "won't work". It just means that Quark didn't test this combination and will also not help you to make this run, it is up to you. If you need technical support by Quark, please use a supported combination has not reached end-of-life.

Thanks
Matthias
