Re: Hardware key.

There are no files in the Library/Quark/preferences folder.

Now what?

Hardware key.

I am unable to "collect for output". Quark 8.1.6 on a iMac.

I used to be able to for years! Now I get this message: "Hardware key not found. Please shut down your computer and install the correct hardware key [5]".

What is a hardware key and how do I install it?

Re: Unable to Collect for Output.

Sorry, that didn't work. Any other suggestions? I'm using 8.1.

Unable to Collect for Output.

I get a message that says "Hardware key not found. Please shut down your computer and install the correct hardware key [5].

What is that? And how do I fix it?

Thank you.

Opened job keeps sliding off to the right of the screen.

Using the slider bar or the mouse doesn't work. It keeps zooming off to the right, half off the screen.

Second problem: In an existing job, formatted style sheets lose their formatting. I need to click on each paragraph to get the correct style. Redoing the style sheets doesn't work.

Weird cropping problem.

I received 2 B&W photos for use in a job. Both were JPEGs and read as 300 dpi and about 48 picas wide.

I needed to crop them to size, but when I did and hit return --- they shrank to 1 pixel!

What's going on?

Re: Strange cropping problem!

Thanks for that tip, but I reset the PS preferences (holding down shift/option/command) while restarting PS, and it worked!

Strange cropping problem!

This question is only somewhat related to Quark, but I can't get an answer from Adobe -- so I hope someone here has the smarts to figure it out. I'm on a Mac, 10.8.6, and use Photoshop CS3. Just in the past few days, when I try to crop and resize a photo in PS, and then hit return. The photo shrinks...

Quark quits on both "Find" and "Search & Replace"

Quark has been reliable doing search & replace before (and I've used it for over 20 years).

I'm working on a 540 page job and REALLY need to do search & replace.

Any ideas?
