Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

I'm the original poster. Really disappointing that after all this time Quark still hasn't fixed this awful output corruption bug. We still cannot output PDF's with native transparency, the Quark default, with any confidence the PDF's won't be badly corrupted. Crazy.

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

A Palaniappan (Quark) I was able to reproduce your results. The problem is fixed simply by creating a new text box. This is extremely helpful since it provides a practical workaround. This Quark file was originally created years ago by an outside firm. So I have no info to give you about how that co...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

@ A Palaniappan Thanks very much for your attention to this. Here are more test files showing the additional output problems as you requested: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ogfmnfsc6npnxr4/Test%20page.zip?dl=0 Output errors occur when Quark is set to flatten transparency and when it is set to to output ...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

Thanks, Mike. The real problem here, for us, is that since we can't trust Quark to output PDF's correctly with native transparency we simply can't risk it. It's a nightmare trying to identify all of the output errors in a large book containing a hundred or more placed PDF's. Too easy to miss some. B...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

Thanks, Mike. I retested. Interesting, I see now that converting fonts to outlines with Pitstop Pro fails to convert the "Mayflower" fonts in the Plymouth ad for some reason. When I convert to outlines using Acrobat those fonts do convert and the ad outputs fine. However the same is not true for the...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

@MikeWenzloff Thanks for the idea. But not all of the problematic placed PDF's came from InDesign. And I tried converting those PDF's to outlines and found that while one of them then output correctly the other two did not. So this output corruption bug in Quark is not limited to InDesign-generated ...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

@ max.peter

Did you set Quark to Export Transparency Natively? That is when the corruption occurs.

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

Thanks for your reply. Here are updated test files proving the fault in the software using a fully updated Quark 2016 installation. I have highlighted in yellow the corrupted areas on the output PDF. Previously Quark did fix some of the output corruption problem, but as you can see PDF output corrup...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

This PDF output corruption bug, which I reported and documented in November, 2015, is still not fixed. Apparently now my support ticket for it is closed. Can someone at Quark explain the status? My sample files proving the software fault are still available at the link I provided in this thread. Wil...

Re: Quark 2015 changing placed PDF's upon output

To Quark: unfortunately this problem is not in fact fixed in Quark 2016. You can easily verify this for yourselves using my test files. Some of the pages now output correct, but others still output incorrectly when Quark is set to output transparency natively (the default). This is disappointing. We...
