Hi shaun,

Quark Document converter converts projects having print layouts. I'm not sure why you are facing this issue. Does the project have a file xtension. Is the file xtension in lower case or in upper case.

Kindly send me your project. I will have a look at it . You can mail to me at sinair@quark.com

Sent.
These files were created in Quark 4.1 on a Mac running OS 8.6, in 2009.
If I can't get them to open I can possibly recreate them from printed copies.

Downloaded fresh copy of Converter and replaced old one with this.
Batch converted old files to new format with no errors.
Old copy must have been corrupted in some way.

I got the same error message when I set "QXD" documents to open in the Document Converter and then double-clicked one.

No problem when clicking "Convert File(s)" in the Document Converter and selecting it.

Hi Ericr23,

Kindly note,
Document Converter will only convert older version (ver 3-9) QuarkXPress files to ver 9.1 files. You cannot associate a file type with Document Converter app and hope the file converts automatically on double clicking on the file. You need to either use 'Convert Files' or 'Convert files from Folder' option in the Document Converter.
