  • Quark 8: Tools and Colours will not show

    Hi there,

    I have QuarkXpress 8 which I use all the time, and I think it's great.

    However, when I loaded it up today, no matter what I tried I could not get the Tools or Colours to show on the screen.
    Usually, I get these by pressing F8 (tools) and F12 (colours). But this did not work.

    The other option is to go to Window and turn them on there. Despite there is a tick showing against both Tools and Colours here, they do not show on the screen.

    Please could someone help me solve this problem. Without Tools and Colours, I can do nothing with Quark.

    I found this article which relates to Quark 10, not Quark 8: ... -Windows-8 and I disabled the display scaling on high DPI settings, but still the Tools or Colours would not show.

    Please help me.

    Many thanks

      First step would be to trash your preferences.
      I haven't used Quark in maybe a couple years now.
      here is a mac article on how to do it.
      Bear in mind you may lose any custom settings, but if the program isn't working, that's not much of a loss.
