    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.

                  Not to get negative but I would password protect all your work before you give it to them so they can only view it, not edit or print it. Sounds fishy.

                  As far as the rest goes, that is vague....

                  Charge client and DYI. If you do not already know how to do something like that it's a great thing to learn. I'm sure there's many tuts online. You can even recycle the images down the road or sell them...
