Error can not open file Quarkxpress

Post by moon13 » 19 Jan 2018, 02:22

When I set up QuarkXpress 8.1, and then print it out to the customer, when the customer returns a review, I open Quarkxpress and it says "This document can not be opened by this version of Quarkxpress." ] is a stellar file though on Quarkxpress 8.1

Which version of QuarkXPress is your customer using? Or do you just give him a hard copy (print out)?

And why are you using 8.1 and not the latest version of QuarkXPress 8?

And which operating system are you using? MacOS High Sierra? Windows 10?

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?
