Re: System Requirements for QX2018

I think it's like all previous versions: it might run, but they haven't tested or (nor will support it). Sort of an opposite "for instance", I was able to get QXP 7.5 to run on Snow Leopard, but it a). wasn' t officially supported and b). often crashed unexpectedly. 6.5 ran far smoother. I'd expect ...

Re: QX2018 – Vertical Measurement palette

Is the measurement palette ONLY going to be vertical, or will we still have the option to revert to the (current) horizontal configuration, in case that works better for us?

Re: Mac vs PC

If there are font matching issues, a dialog box will pop up when your PC user opens the file on their workstation. They should be able to still make edits, etc. but if all they're doing is editing type and handing off back to you, I'd recommend you tell them to just click "okay" to the missing fonts...

Default Size/Position of New Project windows?

Is there any way to change the default size/shape (and position) of the project window (especially for creating new projects)? The reason I ask is that every time I open a new project, the window goes below (and behind) the Measurements palette, and also behind the Page Layout palette, meaning I can...

Question about master pages and numbering

Long-time user here. I have a document that has to be consecutively-numbered 1-750 on the front side, and have a "sign-in sheet" on the back. In other words, the front side of each page is a different number, and the back page is the same for all of them. At first, I thought I could simply set up Ma...

turn off auto-complete in Find/Change dialog?

Is there any way to revert back to the "old" way, where XPress doesn't try to auto-complete your find/change search criteria?

The new "auto-complete" is VERY annoying in my workflow, and I almost always have to end up backspacing over the bits I don't want included in the search.

Re: overprint/knockout help!

Never mind, I found it!

You can still set Overprint on individual objects using the Window>Colours palette.

overprint/knockout help!

I have an old layout where I had a thick, blue line on top of a photograph. In the old version of XPress, the line automatically "knocked out" the photo underneath. When I open it in QXP16, the line now "overprints" the photo (the photo shows through). I know the old "trapping" dialog box is now gon...

Re: Has QXP 2016 been tested with El Capitan update (10.11.6

I'm not getting crashes, just that performance is now lagging, and it gets more so as the day goes on. After completing certain tasks (a text edit, resizing a picture in a picture box, etc), I'll get the beach ball, then will have to wait until it goes away before I can do the next thing. From a fre...

Has QXP 2016 been tested with El Capitan update (10.11.6)?

I installed the new MacOS update today and have been getting a LOT of "beach balls of death" this afternoon. At first, I thought there might be an issue with Microsoft Outlook, but I'm beginning to think there's a bug with QXP16. I'm in my print dialog box now and EVERY time I select even a single t...
