Quark Issues

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Modulo now sell a new workflow system that supports both XPress and InDesign? If so, then why the anxiety? Sell them the product they like better.

Save our Quark

Agreed, Tom. It would be a good idea for a professional in the field to be fluent in both apps and be able to apply the best tool for any given job, as appropriate.

[img]../../themes/default/images/icon-quote.gif"> [strong]david marley:[/strong]Quark's biggest advantage is its efficient interface. It is also more reliable than InDesign. InDesign has amazing design features and everyone loves them, but it suffers from several drawbacks. You can design a lot of c...

Importing to InDesign - not in Q6

InDesign has never converted XPress 5 or 6 files. Only 3 and 4. And, for what it's worth, the scuttlebutt is that it was Quark that cracked down by taking steps to make that conversion more difficult in v 5 and 6.

Opening an InDesign file

[strong]Tom Owens:[/strong]Agfa STAR 400 Level 1 RIP (33mhz with 16 WHOPPING MEGS of RAM!!!)

It's tough...they won't buy me a new RIP. :evil:

Yes, you have a problem, and it will get worse as XPress also breaks the surly bonds of level 1 as well.

Opening an InDesign file

The only level of PostScript that ID doesn't officially support is level 1. Printing transparency doesn't require a level 3 RIP. The PDF and PostScript export options in ID are pretty extensive, and a flattened PDF 1.3 file from InDesign doesn't require a level 3 RIP (the PDF/X-1a and X-3 export opt...

Missing EPS fonts frm Quark 6.1 when import to Indesign CS

Is there a good reason why you're asking for EPS and not PDF? I think that using the latter would solve this particular problem and be more reliable in general.

Quark 6 vs. In design

[strong]dttype:[/strong]since Adobe owns the postscript code and doesn't hand it out to Quark, Quark cannot make use of it like Adobe does in its apps' print engines. :?: :?: :?: This is really a non-issue. PostScript is an open standard. Adobe sells its own proprietary RIPs, and even those can be l...

Why does Quark suck so bad?
