    I've had people try this before. I have never gone through with it, but trust your instincts. If it smells like a scam, it probably is.

    Does it do the same thing with the brush tool? The pencil tool is really either "on" or "off" when it comes to drawing. So the slightest variation in pressure could make it do what...

    I thought that too, but presumably, it's his own promo shot so I'll infer that (he thinks) he's too badass to look happy.

  • Quark help

    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.
