Re: unable to open Quark files

I have just disabled my virus checker but found it made no difference. As long as I can open my files via my work-around I will have to continue until I get to the bottom of the problem. I will do some more research.
Thank you for your help.

Re: unable to open Quark files

Thank you for the reply. I have just opened a previous file, via the method explained in last posting, in Quark. I updated it and saved it to another desktop file folder but trying to open in Quark from that folder failed. Again I copied and pasted back to my Quark jobs folder and then opened via Qu...

Re: unable to open Quark files

I have found a work-around to this problem but fail to understand why it is happening. It seems that any Quark file saved in desktop folders won't open directly. I get the message 'You'll need a new app to open this .qxp file. Look for an app in Store' Normally I just double click on the file and Qu...

Re: unable to open Quark files

Hello Matthias
It seem to be a blanket coverage including my most recent files. I can open recent files from the Quark start up page, which has a limited list, but see that files saved elsewhere including a folder for all my Quark jobs going back can't be opened. This includes files saved this week.

unable to open Quark files

I am running Quark 2017 on Windows 10 and have found that I can't open saved project files either within Quark or those backed up on external discs. I am asked to open with an app. Why, what app? The files symbol in the listing is just an outline. I have looked back on saved projects and none will o...

Re: Invisibles keep turning on

Thank you, this worked although why it should be necessary I don't understand. I found that it it was when you actually clicked on the word IMPORT in the table that the anomaly occurred. Hopefully it won't happen again, but not confident.

Invisibles keep turning on

Since upgrading to Quark 2017 I seem to be unable to stop the invisibles turning on when importing text and photos into text. I turn them off in View but they reappear as soon as I import another photo or modify it. I've nothing against invisibles, can be useful, but find them distracting in general...

Re: Black text printing with ghost shadow

Just as an update on this printing problem. I asked a friend to print a page and he found no problem either. Which leaves me to try to sort out how my printer can be selective over certain aspects of imaging but only from Quark.

Re: Black text printing with ghost shadow

Hi Mike That's interesting. I am only getting the effect on Quark text, not logos or on the page headers, corner marks, black boxes, rule dividers, photos etc. I have just printed out some forms from a black only PDF and they were fine, from Quark direct they had the shadow. Other programs such as W...

Re: Black text printing with ghost shadow

Hi Mike Thanks for reply. I have attached a Dropbox link giving a cutdown version of the typesetting copy (original too big to email even after zip) and the full colour PDF and the mono version PDF sent to the printer. Printing out a page from inkjet printer from either the Quark settings or colour ...
