    Just to save you time - and me frustration - if you clicked on this thread to mouth off about Quark, please don't. If you're interested in helping me, welcome!

    I recently got the Q5/free upgrade to Q6, running on my PB17, and noticed that when I activate fonts in OSX, they are activated for Quark in classic, but I only get very jagged versions of them (see picture). Might be that the screen font isn't activated?

    Anyway, I wondered if there was a way of having them work okay, even if it involves activating them permanently etc. I actually tried this by placing the fonts I needed into the classic system > fonts folder and restarted but it didn't solve the problem. It's weird because verdana, courier, gadget et al look fine in Quark, but not new fonts that didn't come on the system.

    Any ideas about this? Has it got anything to do with ATM? Just clutching at straws.

    if you use post-script fonts you have to install adobe-type manager (you know that ps was invented by adobe, dont you?) to display them correctly

    there is a "light" version available for free on the adobe site
