View Full Version : Quark profiles

02-11-2013, 02:00 PM
I recently updated the OS to 10.6.8. I am using Quark 7.0, and now all the profiles are missing, with the exception of the Quark 7.0 default.

I searched some as I don't use Quark and this article (http://www.planetquark.com/2009/09/21/quarkxpress-7-not-officially-supported-in-mac-os-x-10-6-snow-leopard-or-windows/) says it's not officially supported. I see Quark 9 (http://www.quark.com/Products/QuarkXPress/System_Requirements.aspx) is good for 10.5 through 10.8.

This Google search (http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=les%3B&gs_rn=2&gs_ri=hp&gs_mss=doesquark%207.0%20work%20mac%20os%2010.6&cp=5&gs_id=6l&xhr=t&q=does+quark+7.0+work+mac+os+10.6&es_nrs=true&pf=p&tbo=d&sclient=psy-ab&oq=does+quark+7.0+work+mac+os+10.6&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42261806,d.cGE&fp=fd24e4d06201c708&biw=1136&bih=905) has some more links to review or find a work around. Others around here might be more familiar with it.

I used to support some older versions of Quark Xpress (7.latest patch), and it seemed happiest on 10.5 and early 10.6 as I recall. Several machines got updated, and Quark was never happy again.....

I do recall fighting profiles, but is has been too long, I don't recall the fix. Wanna say we restored some from a backup, which I see here (http://forums.quark.com/p/23996/99721.aspx#99721). Sorry, not much help. :(

Remember general issues like this (http://forums.quark.com/t/27849.aspx) and this (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3707196?start=0&tstart=0).....that made us give up trying to fix. Rolled the OS back.

Have you tried deleting preferences, or opening QX in a new test user account to see how it behaves?
