Can not print from Quark 6.0 or 6.1

Post by Jeanne Carroll » 15 Jun 2004, 09:34

I'm using Quark 6.0 on OS 10.2.3. and Quark will not print to any printer. I upgraded to 6.1 this did not help. Reloaded 6.0. Reloaded all printers. Quark still will not print. Help. All other programs will print.

try printing with a Rough output mode. You can do this by selecting Rough from the Output drop-down list in the Options tab (Print dialog box).

If the problem still there so you can replace your all fonts with Helvetica or Arial through Utilities menu\Usage\Fonts then try to print.

Does the problem occur again?

Good luck!!!

Are you able to PDF, using your printer's driver and the PPD( If this is a post script printer)??

- Have you tried printing through Text Edit? [Applications>Utilites>Text Edit]
- Set the QuarkXPress Preferences for PDF to make a PS file and then try dropping the PS file onto the printer icon in your Printer Setup Utility. Check the result.

Quark did spool to the printer as long as I was using Helvetica with the printing set on rough draft and no photoshop images.

Quark will print from a pdf.

I tried printing through Text Edit and this did not work.

Help.

Try replacing the fonts used in your document by Geneva or Chicago and then try printing. :)

Hello :evil:

I'm having the same problem. I cannot print with xpress 6.1, or our old version 3.3. Printing in with 6.1 on our new eMac had never been a problem up until a week ago. Now my printer won't show up in the select printer dialog box! I've tried re-intalling QuarkXpress 6.1, and re-installing our printer but no luck thus far. The only thing i can think of that would have caused this: I recently cleaned the HD of all caches and cache files.

My printer is not Postscript, but it was working fine before (except for the problem with pictures, etc.). WE NEED A SOLUTION! I'm currently using Quark as our main software for our Printing business, and this is making it difficult to get the work done. I cannot simply change the fonts to Helvetica, just so they'll print. These documents have to be perfect... we were in the process of migrating our old work from Quark 3.3 into Quark 6.1 because of computer problems (basically everything was about 10 yrs old!). This has become more of a burden than a privilege.

Are there some hidden files i need to uninstall and re-install? to completly un-install Quark 6.1, what files besides the Quark app. folder and the pref. files in the library do i have to trash?

Jeanne,

Why are you still at 10.2.3? Can you update to 10.2.6 or even better, 10.2.8?

peace,
Linda :)
