Suitcase font auto activation

Hi there After suffering the s---l---o---w---e---s---t file save and opening times I have ever experienced during the past couple of years of using Quark 2016 (I mean, minutes for a simple 36-page booklet to open and re-save! I had a Powermac 7500 23 years ago that was faster!), I have finally had t...

Moving from Mac to PC...

Hi there The organisation I work for as a Graphic Designer is forcing me to move from my beloved Mac to a PC (something to do with PSN compliancy - or somesuch spurious reason). OK, I can't currently print from the Mac (have to export PDF to a USB stick, then take that to a PC that is allowed on the...

Re: Single letter on a page - won't output

Aaaah! So it's a recognised bug!
Phew!
At least I'm not going mad! I thought that after 28 years of using Quark I'd finally lost the plot :)

Thanks for the reply!

Single letter on a page - won't output

Hi there I wanted to PDF a series of single letters on SRA3 pages. Simple and easy... New document, SRA3 portrait. Draw a text box, corner to corner, to fill the page. Type a single capital 'H' in Helvetica. Centred, then centred vertically (Cap+Accent). Enlarge the letter to 960pt to be 'big' withi...

Arrow in Measurements Pallette... Why?

Hi all, and a Happy New Year! Not really important, but this is something I've been wondering about for a while... Can anyone tell me why, when I've not got anything selected on a page, and the Measurements Palette (which I've got running across the full width of the screen at the bottom) is complet...

Re: "Place Name" script not working

Update to this issue:

I have just installed the October 2017 update to Quark 2016, and the 'Place Name' problem seems to have been resolved!

Hurray!

And thank you Quark!

Re: Dropping out backgrounds

Hi there I often experience a similar issue... (using Quark 2016, with latest update, on a new Mac). Sometimes, when importing a PSD file containing a 'cutout' image with a transparent background into a picture box with background set to 'None', the image will appear in Quark 2016 with a solid backg...

Re: "Place Name" script not working

Hi there Thanks for the reply. I've checked and triple checked that I'm doing everything the same way that I have done it hundreds (if not thousands) of times over the years, and I've just run the same process on another older Mac I've got here (running Quark 8.6), and everything works as it should ...

Re: "Place Name" script not working

Hi Matthias Aahhh... now you're asking a difficult question.... I believe it was working before the update, but I cannot honestly say it was so. It is a while since I have had to do this particular job that requires the names underneath pictures, and I have added a new machine to the office recently...

"Place Name" script not working

Hi there I've just applied the July 2017 update to Quark 2016. I am in the process of simply putting a series of images onto a page (rather like a Contact Sheet) and want to use the "Place Name" script to add the file name underneath each image. However, when I try this, selecting just one box – whi...
