Dealing with a QX9 project -- questions

Post by jgold723 » 17 Aug 2016, 11:32

Longtime Apple/Quark user. Recently upgraded to Yosemite and due to that upgraded from QX9.5 to 2015 and subsequently 2016. Still have QX9.5 on my machine and it seems to work OK with a couple of quirks.

I have a client who is still using QX9.5 and wants me to work in that. I'm wondering what my best option is for this:

1) Work in 2015/2016 and downsave for him (Is that even possible?);

2) Work in 9.5?

If #2 is the best or only option, are there any issues with running both versions of Quark on my machine? I wouldn't be running them at the same time.

Hi jgold723,

We cannot downsave to 9.x from QXP 2015/QXP2016, but yes you can launch all the versions of QXP simultaneously.

Thanks
Rohit

Are you sure we can launch all the versions of QXP simultaneously?

Hi Susan,

"all" is a big word. ;-)

And yes, you can install and launch several versions of QuarkXPress at the same time, the EULA explicitly allows using the previous version on the machine where you installed the upgrade.

Biggest hurdle are always the OS requirements.

Regards
Matthias
