QuarkXPress 7 (Intel MBP, Leopard) freezing or crashing cons

Post by Dan Feather » 20 Jun 2008, 17:09

I've tried everything I can think of to troubleshoot Quark's continuous poor performance, but can not manage to get through even 5 minutes of work with avenue.quark (setting up an XML template, making rule sets, creating XML document). I have disabled all XTensions not required for this task; I have repaired permissions; I have experimented with freshly-made and very simple, short documents; I have created a new user account. And today I attempted to work on another user's computer: also a MacbookPro with Leopard and latest version of XPress. It was the same story! I was unable to accomplish anything. . . .
My ultimate goal is simply to create a template for fairly simple documents which will be converted for the web each month. There are no images, just a dozen style sheets, and fewer fonts.
Any assistance, suggestions, or even sympathy would be appreciated.

You have my sympathy. You are using 7.31 right? I would call Quark tech support. It is free. I have seen suggestions to turn off spaces (whatever that is). I'm a Windows user.
