I have a document in Quark 6 that has decided to corrupt.

When I try and open it, it says something like:

end of file encountered -39

Is there any way of recovering this....?

Usually no.

Welcome to QuarkXpress, layout app extraordinaire.


(Using the Auto Backup in Preferences is highly recommended for important/lengthy jobs)

Oh I feel for you. We have to use Quark all the time for our reports and it sucks when you go to save it and it says it can't find the file. Basically, screwed. Autosave is great, but it hangs up my machine everytime it saves... so it's a tossup whether to use. Then again, my work machine is an older iMac.

good luck.

Have you tried duplicating and renaming the duplicate, or shortening the name?

Muahaha... Quark will treat all attempts at recovery as puny and futile endeavours worthy of the vermin that we are.
