Free "January 2018 Update" for QuarkXPress 2017

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 22 Jan 2018, 11:50

Hi all,

tomorrow we are releasing the free "January 2018 Update" for QuarkXPress 2017.

It mainly improves quality of QuarkXPress 2017 by fixing customer-reported bug.

We will start distributing the update via Auto Update on Jan 23, 2018. You can also manually update:

WARNING!

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 23 Jan 2018, 06:48

WARNING:
Unfortunately QX2017-13.2 contains a bug occurring with boxes turned by 90°, 180° or 270°.

So we have stopped auto distribution of the update.

The bug only occurs when you have boxes turned by either 90°, 180° or 270°AND if the number of rotated glyphs exceed the number of unrotated glyphs. Then the output page (exported PDF) also turns, so it is easily spotted. We will fix this bug as quick as possible and then distribute the fix in a patch. Until then we advise to either not use the update or to proceed with extreme caution!

Please accept our sincere apologies that this slipped our testing.

Thank you very much!
Matthias
