Re: Activation issue after BIOS upgrade

Can this be true? Quark claim that one has a lifetime license, yet activations get used up by doing routine maintenance on one's hardware such as upgrading bios and because one is now out of the 2018 support cycle, one cannot get the activation reset as the live chat operators have not other interes...

Auto Backup destroys saved Work (Program bug)

Quarkxpress 2018 has a serious flaw in the form of Auto Backup. I discovered this about 3 months ago but was so caught up in solving my problem of the mysteriously disappearing files that I forgot to post about it once I had solved the problem for myself. The problem is as follows and is related to ...

Quarkxpress 2018 updater behaviour....

Before I mess up my installation of QX2018, can someone please advise if it is normal that one must uninstall the current QX 2018 installation before the updater can be installed? Usually updating is handled by the app's update function but my QX update function under Help does not work. It gives me...

Re: How to upgrade to 2018 14.2.1

Please forgive my ignorance in matters Quark updating. What I downloaded from the above link is a full new installer for the Jan 2019 version of QX2018 and Windows 10 requires that I uninstall my old Quark first before installing the updated version. That means that I lose all my settings and prefer...

Re: How to upgrade to 2018 14.2.1

Thank you for the link. I simply don't understand why the program does not work as it should. Furthermore, when I use the same credentials as I used for my first download of QX2018 it does not recognise me. That has happened before and seems to somehow have to do with which server one reaches on the...

How to upgrade to 2018 14.2.1

I am still on QX 2018 14.0 and have been spectacularly unsuccessful in upgrading to the later versions since then. The built in updater does not do anything. I then get a comment to use the installer and only install the updater - that does not work either. How do I go about getting my updates under...

Re: find/change plain text to superscript

Thank you to the Quark community for all your help (none), but I figured it out and it turns out to be due to an annoying default I had not suspected to be at play here. The issue is as follows, when one sets up a character style sheet the type styles are defaulted to Character style sheet.png P gre...

Re: find/change plain text to superscript

I am surprised there has been no response to my post and have to wonder if this is a shortcoming of QuarkXpress or a fault with 2018 to simply find some text and change it to super- or subscript. Just tried it with MS Word and there the operation is trivial, yet I cannot do same with QuarkXpress 201...

find/change plain text to superscript

I am not having success in find/change functionality when trying to find and change say H2O in a chemical formula where the 2 is to be subscripted. The same happens with trying to superscript numbers. This happens in the process of copying and pasting MS Word technical papers into QX 2018 which lose...

Re: Document text highlighting issues

Thanks guys for getting back on this, at least I don't feel too bad that I could not solve these problems myself. Will look at FB and see what goes on there. Meantime the work around is to zoom in so the highlight is more visible. Solution probably hidden somewhere in the Windows system. Since posti...
