PDF version 1.4

Acrobat Pro or PitStop Pro are suitable tools.

PDF version 1.4

The problem will compound if you upgrade to QuarkXPress 7 as you will dig yourself further into a hole. Quark will never support a modern PDF workflow since it has to support PDF version specs after they have been officially released. Adobe develops its apps concurrently with modern PDF specs so the...

Saving Quark 7 as Quark 6

[strong]VBrewster:[/strong]even service bureaus haven't upgraded!!!!

Maybe because they don't find it good business to do so. Why aren't we sending PDF files? It is 2008!!!

InDesign cannot replace Quark

The obvious irony is that this thread is revealing that 'Quark cannot replace InDesign'.

In SherylLB's situation (and many of our own), two licenses (QuarkXPress and Illustrator) are used to simply do what InDesign could do alone.

InDesign cannot replace Quark

Isn't QuarkXPress sending art to JAWS via PostScript, which does not handle transparency at all? Until Quark changes the way it moves data to the JAWS interpreter, we're stuck with flat art. I doubt this will change. It would be reckless for Quark to engineer its app to export live transparency to b...

InDesign cannot replace Quark

[strong]iebng:[/strong]the rest pages are done by Sub-Editors which do not require any effects. You seem to be confusing InDesign with a program that is intended for effects. It is just as much of a meat and potatoes workhorse as QuarkXPress. It can do plain old boring text documents too. [strong]ie...

Quark 4 Vs. Quark 6 / New Macbook

I run QuarkXPress 4 via SheepShaver and QuarkXPress runs faster than I recall when it was running on an original Mac of the day.

But seriously, new hardware and new software belong together.

Copying HTML Script into Qxpress 6.5

[strong]Craig Hines:[/strong]Are you suggesting, though, that the Quark-written .html can be edited in textedit for instance (I've written some .html in that successfully) and then reposted? Can you share more of this work-around? Any HTML can be edited. The problem with Quark HTML is that there is ...

OT Presidential primary elections and caucuses

It is a little of both. The caucus is more of a group event. If you want to sabotage the attendance for a particular candidate, you can send in someone with an obvious contagious illness like conjunctivitis. That can clear out a room easily. :lol: The same tactic would not work in a primary election...

OT Presidential primary elections and caucuses

Sadly true. It is easy to make generalizations about the intelligence of voters whether they belong in a caucus state or a primary state. Caucus folk may stand in a room and raise hands to tip off other hesitant voters to follow suit. Primary voters only cast their vote in an individual voting booth...
