QXP Document Converter crashes for non-admin users

Postby Vincent_E » 13 Aug 2015, 12:41


I tried the QXP Document Converter and found that it crashes on startup for a non-admin user on OS X 10.10
The spinning gray wheel freezes for a moment, then the app crashes and gets closed.

Kind regards,

Hi Vincent,

I was able to reproduce the issue at my end. We are looking into the issue and hope to resolve it soon.

Workaround: It works fine if the non admin user is given atleast Read only permission to the QuarkXPress Document Converter application folder and its content
