FYI: disabling Welcome Screen.xnt causes applescripts to break

After weeks of trying to track down an error, I've finally found that if you disable the Welcome Screen Xtension in QuarkXPress 2018, applescripts no longer work. "if exists document 1" returns true, but get name of document 1 returns null. "tell text box 1 of page 1 of document 1" will not work. Th...

Re: PDF output style not working

THANK YOU! This fix worked for me with QuarkXPress 2018 as well. For anyone else that had this problem, when I opened my scripts after performing the fix, the export command was in raw code, within chevrons. I had to replace the following: search for:«event WRD0XDOC» replace with:export search for:g...

Re: QuarkXPress Scripts menu out of order

Same problem in QuarkXPress 2018. I did notice that QXP2018 now has an Applescript sub-folder within the Scripts folder.

Re: Fonts in 2018

Fonts available from the Font Menu in QuarkXPress 2018 documents are not available as a replacement font in the Font Mapping dialog. In QuarkXPress 2017, we have a Font Rule in Utilities > Font Mapping… defined. We export the font rules to an .XML file. In QuarkXPress 2018, we go to Utilities > Font...

Re: QuarkXPress Scripts menu out of order

This appears to be an issue with APFS on SSD drives and readdir call, which orders the contents of the Scripts directory by hash order, rather than lexicographically. I have not found a solution. https://github.com/lionheart/openradar-mirror/issues/17635 https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8090318 ...

QuarkXPress Scripts menu out of order

All of a sudden, my Scripts menu in QuarkXpress 2017 v13.2.1 is NOT in alphabetical order. Any ideas how to fix this?

Re: PDF output style not working

I've also tried disabling SIP (System Integrity Protection) and compiling the script, with no effect.

Re: PDF output style not working

Interestingly, when I quit QuarkXPress 2017 and start QuarkXPress 11.2.0.6 so that applescript editor uses the older version of QXP, it still won't compile because of the 'PDF Output Style' part of the command. This applescript command previously worked in this version of QuarkXPress, so it must be ...

Re: PDF output style not working

After upgrading to High Sierra (now using 10.13.3), I'm having the same error when compiling my scripts written for QuarkXPress 2017 v13.2.1. It seems to be related to a command from the PDF Suite in the QXPScriptingAdditions.osax. -------------------------- tell application "QuarkXPress 2017" expor...
