em dash, close quotes on line by itself

Does anyone have this problem in Quark 6.5? With text set as justifiied, sometimes an em dash and close quotes ends up on a line by itself, which we then have to manually tweak with a soft return or tracking. Is there a way to prevent this from happening altogether? Our house style necessitates all ...

ASCII search and replace not working for

I've had to create multiple search and replaces within Applescript to convert Penta codes to Xtags via ASCII characters. For some strange reason, whenever Applescript searches out the Penta code for a lower case "n" with a tilde above, (;atn), or "N" with a tilde (;atN), it replaces it with a small ...

H&J settings

We're currently updating our Quark 6.5 templates because the default settings within "Auto Hyphenation" are flawed. They are set to Mininum Before of 2 and Minimum After of 3, which causes words like to break as follows: alread- y." Quark must be considering the period and close quotes as two charac...

find/change glitch in Quark 6.5

has anyone experienced problems performing global find/changes in Quark 6.5? (OSX.3.7, G5) We're getting extra "phantom" text boxes on-screen when performing a global find/replace with "Layout" checkmarked. The file ends up hanging, and we have to force quit. It seems to run fine with "Layout" unche...

replace with nothing

How do I search text and replace with nothing? I've tried the following: --search out [fp and replace with nothing set every text where it is (ASCII character 91) & (ASCII character 102) & (ASCII character 112) to ({}) But all this does is hilight the text in the Quark file. It doesn't replace with ...

ONE Hyphenation Exceptions for ALL documents. Please?

We spent many-an-hour updating master templates because of hyphenation exceptions, before finding a great extension called Hyphenator XT (http://www.techno-design.com). You can have a single central list of hyphenation exceptions living on a server which applies to any Quark file when you run Hyphen...

multiple search and replaces in Quark 6

We've been using an extension called Batch Search & Replace to do mulitiple search/replaces in Quark 4. Unfortunately, there is no BSR extension or any other search & replace extension for Quark 6 (that I can find). Does anyone have any suggestions as what to do about multiple find/changes when we s...
