    When opening an existing Quark document I get error message:

    this document cannot be opened by this version of quarkxpress (16)

    I am using quark 9.0 (mac)

    Any help appreciated

    Quark 9 already?

    Anyway. Are you completely updated? Done all the patching etc.? Is there a 9.x update you are missing? Those are the easy answers.
    The hard answer may be that the file is corrupt or you're having a PC/Mac mismatch.

      Is the file on a server?

      Something I used to do when working on Quark was to copy to the file to the desktop and try to open it from there.

      Are you on Mac or PC?

        Good one Hank. I forgot about having to move files to the desktop. I haven't used Quark in years. Still on v7.

        Tell me, cuz I gotta know, Does Quark 9 still have the 48" artboard????

          I don't know about 9, but 8 sure does.

            I'd also place it on the desktop. Also, add ".qxd" at the end of the file name if it doesn't already have it.

              Newer versions might want a ".qxp" at the end.

              Version 7 and later use .qxp

            Used to be you could only transfer between Mac and PC with the same generation file e.g. Quark 8 PC file would only open on a Mac with Quark 8.

              if you didn't originally create the file I believe there is a 9.5 update. I don't know if that is going to cause issues though.
              Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

                I used to have problems with Quark vs. Quark Passport too. Not sure if that's still a relevant problem.

                  I am wondering if there was a purpose to the angles you have chosen. Are you wanting the layout to represent / create a secondary image?.. Like in the second link B posted, the zebra caught my eye. What...

                  Looking at your PDFs, I can tell you're stuck. You're just moving type around on a blank white space and hoping something clicks. For starters, you need a better dynamic relationship between the positive...

                  Your professor is right; you can do better.

                  I say that mostly because you really have yet to do anything. It looks as though you've typed or pasted the vehicle features into some text frames...

                  Have you also considered perspective, or altering the letter shapes (not sure if that's allowed ... check with your prof) heck, search for typographic design online and you'll find a million ideas. ...

                  I took a quick look. In general, you need to play with hierarchy and vary your font sizes. The only thing you've done is arbitrarily rotated some fonts. But everything else is similar in size and weight....
