Shaking my head in regret...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the old forum didn't require any kind of serious ID from users that wanted to sign up for a screen name. In fact, I seem to recall that you could post with any made up on the spot "username" you felt like typing in. I think someone caught on that letting hard-to-trace an...

What is Warnock and do I need it?

been wondering about "Warlock", so I went over the Adobe to find this: Designed by Robert Slimbach, Warnock Pro is a new Adobe Originals type composition family named after John Warnock, the co-founder of Adobe Systems, whose visionary spirit has led to major advances in desktop publishing and graph...

Saving backwards all the way to 3.32

Can you even upgrade to 4.11? I'm a bit dubious. They might have to "borrow" a copy from someone's old hardrive somewhere. I don't think there is even a legal way to buy 4.11 even if you could find someone with a legal copy that they never upgraded and were willing to sell. Maybe. But... if they did...

Kern Protection failure?

Um... are you sure you read that message right?

Kernel protection failures are usually caused by bad ram or a bad input device.

Kern protection failures happen when the letterspace bands on your Linotype get gummed up and don't descend into the matrices properly.

Shaking my head in regret...

You know, I archived the text from the last few months of the Sofa under the old Quark Forums, the ones that suddenly disappeared one dark and stormy night back in the last century. The Forums went down and didn't come back for - what - a couple years? I dunno, it all seems like a dream these days. ...

Insufficient memory to rasterize a transparent element

Oh, and, you know, ever since we upgraded our G5's to 8GB of RAM our Quark flattening has gotten a lot more dependable. I was actually amazed when the "not enough memory to render drop shadow" error message stopped showing up.

Insufficient memory to rasterize a transparent element

[strong]almaink:[/strong]Nice comment but who has the time to spend hours fixing things that should work? Not to defend Quark (heaven forbid!) but I think the comment in dispute here concerned a corrupt image file that had been placed in the Quark layout. Corrrupt Photoshop and Illustrator (and Free...

Top Ten List of Customer/Ad Rep Annoyances

You are welcome, Larry. That was a good rant. Of course, these days, I'm so incredibly cynical about all aspects of "desktop publishing" - I was here before it began, I'll be here after it's gone - that I find myself surfing various forums mainly for little gems of ancient lore such as yours. Keeps ...

um - drop shadows?

Finally a client submits a job using Quark 7. And, like a moth to a flame, they went right for the drop shadow "feature." I've got Quark 7.03 on a G5 Intel with Tiger and 4GB of RAM. I wrote postscript, I wrote pdf, I changed this, I changed that, I lowered resolutions, I even distilled the postscri...
