QuarkXpress 2018 & Mac OS Catalina

Post by dannyrome9 » 25 Oct 2019, 10:05

I know there's a few links with some generic lists of versions of QuarkXpress and which Operating Systems they work with.
If I'm understanding correctly, full compatibility statistics are not quite available yet.

I have a simple question. Will QuarkXpress 2018 be compatible with and run under Mac OS Catalina?

The new requirements for applications running on a Mac is Apple's Notarization process.

From Aaron Ramaekers' reply to someone on the QuarkXPress closed FB group:
QuarkXPress 2018 will not be notarized. We are releasing an update to 2018 in November to improve performance on Catalina OS until Apple forces notarization security requirements on Apps. If Apple provides a way to run non-notarized apps on Catalina OS or relaxes the strict security requirements, QuarkXPress 2018 will continue to run on Catalina OS.
