Whenever I create a linear blend in Quark and change the direction in the degree box from 0 to 90 the blend does not print. (It prints on zero only). Even when I create a PDF file the linear blend area will be blank.

Hello,

It was for two color output. PMS Blue and PMS Orange.

Quark 6.1 or 6.5 works better with OS 3 and newer?

Sorry but more Questions :o

It was for two color output. PMS Blue and PMS Orange.
And the colors are solid or CMYK separated?
I have to admit that we were not using Quarks PDF "Feature" because we experienced to many glitches. If you can, write a PS file (using the Creo Refiner PPD or the Agfa Apogee PPD) and use Acrobat Destiller to create the PDF file.

Quark 6.1 or 6.5 works better with OS 3 and newer?
Not, OS3 MacOSX 10.3 aka Panther or 10.4 aka Tiger.
Most printing (which is also the creation of PDFs) and Font issues are fixed in this case ;)

I have found using the N Device color export under options, when exporting to PDF the only reliable way to make spot color PDF's, from Quack; unless you have the Creo/Kodak or another prepress extension.

Can I upgrade using an OEM version of OS X 10.3?

Yes, the Spotcolor gets written as Device-N color into the PDF (also other non std. colors like transparent white or clearcoat or silver or UV-Colors). With Device-N you can passthru some "glitches" if using non CMYK or RGB colors in an PDF.

But it is also important which PPD u are using and how the PDF is getting generated, worst way is using Quark :(

In most cases yes, you can.

Upgrading from 10.3 to 10.3.9 solved many issues for me.
Networking etc.
1. Always backup before applying the upgrade.
2. Don't use Software Update.( find the downloads you need individually and you can save them for future use).Just use Software update to find what is available.
3. These can be HUGE downloads if you use dial-up like me, but are well worth it.
