  • Error placing a PDF file into Quark

    Ok, can anyone tell me why I get this error message "occassionally" when I try to place a PDF file into Quark 6.5?

    >>Cannot be imported because it is an unrecognized version<<

    Running OSX, Quark 6.5

    This happens every once in a while and would like to know if it's the way the customer PDF'd it?
    And what's the best way to get the PDF placed without saving as an .eps out of Acrobat?

    We tried re-saving the PDF but doesn't work.

    Quark will only import pdf versions 1.3 and 1.4, which are Adobe Acrobat versions 4 and 5, more than likely you have got yourself a pdf version 1.5 which is Adobe Acrobat version 6. If you have the full version of Acobat 6 you can use the pdf optimizer and downsave it to a version 4 without losing quality.

        Thank you, don't know exactly but it looks similar and portraits the same feel as DIN, such a great typeface.

        Thank you again, much appreciate it!...

        CS6 is perfectly fine. Even though it can be awkward to ask someone to save down to CS6 for you if they send you a file, it's still fine in most cases. For what you're doing you could probably use original...

        You don't say how long you go without anything to do, but I think what you're describing is common. I experienced this at my second in-house job. There would be days with little to do, then all the sudden...

        It sounds like whoever ordered the graphic file is ordering the shirts through a promotional items vendor who is then outsourcing the work, probably overseas.

        I would certainly have a clause...
