QuarkXPress 2015 Scripts Menu

Postby peja » 22 Feb 2016, 16:59

Somehow the QuarkXPress 2015 installed Scripts do no appear in the Script menu. I can see the names by folder in the menu (Box Tools, Grid, Images etc), but they are all empty. I checked the installation folder and all scripts seem to be installed correctly, i.e. under 'Box Tools' I find 'Add Crop Marks', 'Easy Banner' etc. A directory listing shows:
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root wheel 17K 6 Okt 19:25 Add Crop Marks
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root wheel 31K 6 Okt 19:25 Easy Banner
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root wheel 11K 6 Okt 19:25 Make Caption Box
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root wheel 42K 6 Okt 19:25 Shrink or Grow at Center
The '@' is an extended file attribute and contains the ResourceFork - which is not empty (I checked with the Apple 'DeRez' utility). I am on OS-X 10.11.3 running QuarkXPress 11.2.02.

I can install my own AppleScript actions (like Scripts->Extra->MyScript) and they are visible and work fine. I have no clue why the QuarkXPress scripts that came with the installation do not work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Peter

Found a workaround - I opened the Quark supplied scripts with Script Debugger and saved (overwrote) them without changes. Now they work but I have no clue why.
