Re: Type 1 Fonts Problems

Matthias, Your suggested workaround of using FontBook to add a Type 1 font seemed to work. When I relaunched QuarkXPress, the new font displayed on-screen correctly when entered into a new text box. Disabling the FontExplorer X Pro extension using your Xtensions Manager, and then restarting QuarkXPr...

Type 1 Fonts Problems

Hi, all. Yesterday after installing the QuarkXPress 2017 13.2.1 update, as well as the macOS 10.12.6 security update, I noticed that Postscript Type 1 fonts are no longer working properly in QuarkXPress. The Type 1 fonts are listed and preview correctly in the QuarkXPress Measurements Palette, but o...

Re: QXP10x Crashes Opening Old Files

Good suggestion, mac_nick, about using the layout appending feature. I may try that if I run into this problem again. Curiously, the crashing problem automagically disappeared. Although I experienced numerous crashes the other day when opening QuarkXPress 9x files in QuarkXPress 10.2.10 and its imme...

QXP10x Crashes Opening Old Files

QuarkXPress 10 for Mac is crashing every time I try to open documents created with an older version. If I create and save documents in version 10, those seem to reopen fine. But if I try to open a document created or saved in version 9 or earlier, QXP 10 crashes. The older documents I've tried to op...

Font display problems with OSX update 10.3.5

>>I was having the same problem with ZapfDingbats and other expert fonts, until the Mac OSX release of the 10.3.6 update.. (They work fine for me now.) Great news, I'll have to give this brand new OS X update a try. Your notice was the first I heard about it. Looking into it, the update is alleged t...

Vista crashes

Hi, all. I recently installed the QuarkXPress 6.5 update on my Mac OS X 10.3.5 computer, so I wanted to try out the new QuarkVista image-processing XTension. However, each time I try to open an effect (levels, curves, blur, etc.) from the palette, QuarkXPress crashes. I've tried this with new and ex...

Font display problems with OSX update 10.3.5

Following is a tip (untested by me), which was posted in an Apple discussion about this same general problem with fonts: Zapf Dingbats dfont displays in Quark after this conditions : - quit Quark - go to your fontmanager application and disable all other versions of Zapf Dingbats except the dfont. -...

Font display problems with OSX update 10.3.5

>>I had the same problem. For the three or so characters I needed in a 48 page document I substituted Wingdings which happened to have the same keyboard layout for those characters. Today http://www.macfixit.com had a story about certain fonts not displaying after people upgraded to Mac OS X 10.3.5....

Quark 6.1 Cannot Print

>>Old fonts can be a problem. Apparently some font resources in them are outdated for use with OS X. We all know a bad font file can cause mayhem all over one's system and sometimes be very difficult to diagnose. Yes, QuarkXPress v6x apparently chokes on some fonts and then won't print or distill PD...

Quark 6.1 Cannot Print

>>Has anyone found a solution?


Not me. Fortunately, most of my recent design projects have been done with InDesign 2.x, which as you noted, prints just fine.

Perhaps this printing bug will be fixed in the next QuarkXPress upgrade? Hasn't this been promised soon?
