Re: QXP 2016 / QXP 8

Dear all,

You may consider this investigation closed. Mike helped me learn that before I attempt to convert these older files, I need to change a given file's suffix to ".qxd"—I've tried this and it is indeed the fix.

With thanks to Mike, and to you all,
Jeff

Re: QXP 2016 / QXP 8

Thanks, Erik and Mike. The converter actually allows me to find and choose the QXP 8 file, but doesn't seem to actually perform any conversion, nor does it produce a new file. It's occurring to me now that the several hundred books I've typset, that are in my archives, may not be openable, when a cl...

QXP 2016 / QXP 8

Dear friends, When I try to open a book created in QuarkXPress 8, in my current version (2016), it says "Project is Locked," and then something like "Please download the document converter . . ." The converter, though, only deals w/ legacy docs, not docs created in version 8. Please help? All best, ...

Re: "Turn Hiding On" glitch (Matthias?)

Thanks, Matthias.

I delted prefs and the problem occurs again, anytime (with hiding turned on) I make a change to a value in the Measurements palette, and actuate it by exiting the box via the "return" or "enter key."

Re: "Turn Hiding On" glitch (Matthias?)

Hello Matthias, Yes, I prefer to hide my Measurements palette so that I can have the tallest possible window when typesetting pages. When I enter a new figure in a field in the Measurements palette, and enact that change by hitting Enter or Return, is not only makes the change, but it also resizes t...

"Turn Hiding On" glitch (Matthias?)

Hello Matthias and all, When I've got a document open, and the measurement palettes "hiding" automatically based on the position of my cursor, I seem to turn it off and on when I've made a measurements value change, and hit the "enter" or "return" keys to effectuate the change. It's start to drive m...

"Enter" glitch in Measurements

Hello all. I'm finding that when I'm entering info into fields in the Measurements palette, and then hit the "Enter" key to effectuate them, and exit the palette, it also effects toggles "Turn hiding on/off" of that palette. I assume this is a glitch. If so, does anyone know of a workaround? Thanks!...

Hide measurements glitchy

Hello all. When I've got measurements palette hiding "turned on," I notice it'll often turn off all by itself, and windows that have been pulled to the base of the screen, will pop back up to "fitting" in the space above the measurements palette. Basically what I'm wondering is, is anyone else exper...

Re: Generic icons

Installing 12.2 has done the trick—thanks so much, Matthias.

(I'm still running El Cap, btw.)
