How do I downsave to QuarkXPress 6 from QuarkXPress 7?

Due to popular demand, here's how:

1. Use File -> Export -> Layout as Projects
2. In the "Version" popup choose "6.0"
3. Choose the appropriate format ("single" for US versions or International English versions, "multiple" for Passport).
4. Make sure, you update your QuarkXPress verison 6 to 6.52. Open.

Done.

Best regards
Matthias

They show that they are "stickied forever". The other (time-bombed) stickies are not up there, they stay at the start of the "Post" section even if I sticky them for a year.
The new forum has lots of things to discover for me ;-)

There is a complete article on downsaving to lower versions of files in the Quark Virtual Knowledge Base that I've copied below for you. We also have many technical articles posted in the Knowledge Base at: http://www.quark.com/service/desktop/su ... ebase.html
How to Save Projects Down to an Earlier Version
Applies to:QuarkXPress 7 & 8 - Mac OS, Windows
Introduction: How can I save my QuarkXPress 8 projects down to version 7 or version 6?

More Information: Beginningwith QuarkXPress 6.0, you can only save a file one version down. Forexample, you can down-save a project from QuarkXPress 8 to version 7and from QuarkXPress 7 to version 6. However, you cannot down-savedirectly from version 8 to version 6. Therefore, if you want to save aversion 8 project down to version 6, you will need to save from version8 to version 7 and save again from version 7 to version 6.
Note:If you are running any PLUS Edition of QuarkXPress 8, you can alsodown-save projects directly to Japanese and Korean 6.5, but only forthese two language versions.
Tosave a QuarkXPress 8 project to QuarkXPress 7.0 format (or, for QuarkXPress 8 PLUS Edition, to Japanese or Korean 6.5):

I downsaved my v7 file to v6 and the file size went from 8,232 kb to 79,581! Can anyone tell me why and how I can get the downsaved file to a size I can email to my client?

I have done this before with no problems. Now when I open my Qk 7 file, and do the export save to 6 option, it says "file is already open"
and it does not save as 6 .. remains at 7. !!!
