Convert "print styles" from Q5 to Q6?

Post by Prepress Department » 03 Jun 2004, 15:08

I've just upgraded from Quark 5 to 6 (going from Mac OS 9 to OS X)

I've got a couple dozen "print styles" defined for our half-dozen different printers and I need to transfer them to the new program. I've exported the styles from Q5 but Q6 does not recognize them.

Any ideas?
TIA

Have just tried a test print style from v5 and have had no problems importing into v6, ppd included. One possibility may be the permissions of the saved styles or maybe there are too many or a corrupt style within the group. Perhaps try breaking them down into small groups. If I can think of anything else I will post back.

Thanks - when I break them down into catagories (based on the printer) I can get one style to import (per group)

I guess I'll have to export them individually and then import them one at a time.

Blah!

I just figured out that you have to have the Print Style _highlighted_ before you export it. Once I did that (for the whole group) they all imported into Q6

Thanks for your help
