Re: Back to Quark after 18 years

F7: If you mean that F7 doesn't do anything at all, you may need to go to System Preferences/Keyboard, under the Keyboard tab, and select "Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys." If you mean that F7 doesn't solve your problem, that's correct. Object frames and guides are all one thing in Q...

Re: Back to Quark after 18 years

Text wrap: On Mac, they moved the Tools settings out of Preferences. Here's how it works in Quark 2017. Create a box and format it however you like (including the text wrap). With the box selected, go to Edit/Set Tool Preferences From Selected. You can choose to apply it to the current layout or to ...

Re: Suitcase Fusion 19.1.0

The latest Suitcase update looks like it resolved some of the interface changes that I hated. I tried to go to the Extensis user forums to discuss, but they've been shut down. I switched to Font Explorer a couple months back due to Extensis dropping Quark support. I had used Suitcase since the Adobe...

Re: QuarkXPress 2015 July 2017 Update now available

Hey Matthias...the compatibility page still shows June 2016 as the latest Quark 2015 Mac update (the link does go to the July 2017 update, but the text still says June 2016).

Re: Text is all garbled

You could try clearing the font caches using Font Nuke or a similar utility.

Re: Usage Dialog Box

Interesting. I'd expect that "Layout 1" nonsense to go away when a document is in Single Layout Mode, but it doesn't.

(Sorry, I always hated the multiple layouts and tabs, double file naming you couldn't get rid of even if you never used multiple layouts, etc. But I'm not bitter. ;) )

Re: Bad PDF Screen Preview

After talking with pjanssen, I was able to export the PDF as a Postscript file (duh on my part) and run it back through Distiller. That did solve the problem. I appreciate the help.

Re: Bad PDF Screen Preview

The PDF was supplied by the advertiser, so I don't have access to the native files. I did try optimizing it, but it didn't help. This is the first time one of their ads has run since we moved to QXP 2015 and Yosemite, and it's the first time we've had a problem with one of their files.

Bad PDF Screen Preview

In Quark 2015 (11.1) on Yosemite 10.10.5, an imported PDF looks bizarre on-screen (the background goes black), but looks OK on PDF output. I'm using the Quark Generic RGB profile, since QXP 2015 is unable to use a calibrated profile (gives bizarre results, here's that post: http://forums.quark.com/v...
