export text from quark back to quark??

Erik knows I have nothing but respect for the amazing amount of help he provides on this forum, but I'm going to disagree on this one.If you want to simply exchange formatted text between two XPress documents, and don't want to use copy and paste, then I would suggest using XPress Tags as the interc...

Copy and paste of a picture from one location to another st

Good, I'm glad you got that resolved. I'm not surprised you had to nest the statements in separate tells, as otherwise it can fail just as you saw, since tool mode is not a page specific property; it can be tricky to think through those scope issues, at least for me. But at least it is something tha...

Very early QuarkXpress files

The last increment of 4.11 may have been a QPS-specific patch, I really can't recall at this point.I definitely have both version 3.32r5 and 2.x around on old media, I just don't really have a machine I'd try to run them on at this point. 3.x might limp along under OS 9 (got an iMac somewhere I coul...

Very early QuarkXpress files

Oops, neglected to add a note here. I was able to open these fine in XPress 4.11 (OS 9 Classic under 10.4.11) and 6.52, but not in 7 (Passport) or 8. They all showed as created in 2.1, last saved in 3.00. So I option-opened them in 6.52 and did a Save As to make new versions. Not sure why others hav...

Copy and paste of a picture from one location to another st

Hi Pedro,While I don't know why this should have changed within version 8, I suspect that the problem is with the tool mode. You must have the Item tool selected when you cut the picture box, and you must have the content/text tool when you perform the paste. You used to be able to reference those t...

Copy and paste of a picture from one location to another st

Hi, without seeing some code, or a specific error message and the line that fails, I don't think anyone is going to be able to offer much help. Can you tell exactly what command the script fails on? Could you post the error message? That would be a good starting point.

Very early QuarkXpress files

If these are 2.x files, 3.3 should be able to read them. They would be Mac, there was no Windows XPress until 3.2. There may be a chance they used a custom XTension that set the required attribute, in which case they could be locked down. But if you'd like me to have a look you can drop me a PM, and...

QuarkXPress 8.5 update availability

Eh, don't feel bad, it's not just you ;-)What platform are you trying for? Download Now should give a page where you enter an email and password, or create a new account for downloading. Maybe browser restrictions could prevent that page from loading, not sure. When I click download now on the Mac u...

quark v6.1 - inserting russian copy

"my coworker is chugging along with QXP 8.x on a G4/450"Yikes. I feel for you guys; I only have 8 on my G5 for testing purposes, I'd hate to have to try to work with it full-time on a PPC. I've seen you mention hardware before and it just seems like your management needs to really think about the lo...
