  • 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: https://quark.parature.com/link/portal/ ... -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
    Sindy

      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.

        Graphic design almost always centers around a point, and that point usually has to do with influencing a target audience. Attractiveness -- as in looking good -- is typically more effective in doing that...
