Goodbye Quark...

How you Quark users build a page without the 9 point transform pallet Adobe Apps have is a mystery to me. Do you have the calculator app running in the background to figure out positions? Quark only gives the coordinates of the upper lefthand conner so if you need to know where the lower right hand ...

Trapping in 9???

Most print shops today trap using the RIP not the application. In fact most don't even print from applications anymore, they export to PDF's. A work around is using Acrobat Pro to do the trapping, if you can output PDF files or print from Acrobat.

Lost: Equivalent of Indesign "Data Merge" function in Quarck

http://www.designmerge.com/demo/This may work for you but it's not a cheap application. Do a Google search for Quark Xpress Data Merge. You might find something cheaper.

Lost: Equivalent of Indesign "Data Merge" function in Quarck

What did they do with InDesign, remove it from your hard drive and throw the disks away? Unless it was a version of Indesign that will no longer run on your system I see no reason why you no longer have it available to use for this project. I don't think Quark has a Data merge like InDesigns built i...

PDF issues in Quark 5.0

Classic Mode is supported in 10.4 but it was flakey at best. If you trash Quarks preferences then restart classic, and Quark 5 it should make the PDF. Problem is you may have to keep doing that if you make the PDF in Classic. Better to save the postscript file from Quark in classic then distill it t...

Major issue with Indesign PDF's (Importing into Quark 9)

Masks? What kind of masks. I'm thinking it's transparency thats causing this. If so try flattening the PDF files in Acrobat Pro before you place them in Quark. It amazes me that Quark still can't deal with Adobe transparency correctly as it's only been around for over 12 years now.

Problems with JPegs in Quark 4

If I remember correctly Quark 4 also had a JPEG Import extension. Make sure it's in the active extensions folder.

Why oh WHY can you not open a 9.1 doc with 9.0?

"Keep in mind that it is not just Quark that has this type of issue. You can not open InDesign 5.5 files in Indesign 5.0."Yes you can. You can even open 5.5 in 4 IF you export as an Interchange file or in version 5.5 they call it an InDesign Markup file. Shouldn't be any issues with the Quark 9.1 to...

PDFs are coming out low res

Don't forget if you enlarge those 300 DPI images the effective resolution will drop. A 200 percent enlargement will result in a 150 DPI image in the exported PDF.
