    Alright Im using osx.2 native and im obvioulsy having to go into classic to bring up quark x press.


    I cant seem to be able to export for pdf. It says...

    "Acrobat Distiller Printer Description FIle is not currently installed. A generic PPD will be used instead. "


    what am i suppose to do now?


    thanks

    and know you are starting to understand why users of quark have been complaining about it for the last... oh.... 10 years or so!

    is this for pro use? if not, if this is just for you to mess around with, use adobe's product instead. plays much nicer with pdf's and such...

    Keep in mind you can import Quark docs into ID2 and then export as PDF...

    Thank you, Thank you, no applause :D

    In order for Quark's Export to PDF function to work, you have to have Acrobat Distiller installed, and then you have to select any Postscript printer (LaserWriter 8 for example) in the (Classic) Chooser. You don't actually have to have a printer attached.

    If you use a Postscript printer for physical printing, you can just leave that PPD selected.

    Then it should all work...

    When's it asking for a serial number?

    Hope this helps.. Quark's a dog, but I've lost my InDesign CD. Sigh.
