Thank you. Let me know the results or 'error' if any, and we will go from there. I will be here.
Thank you. Give me just a few minutes to review.
Okay, please go to this page:
where it says disc image with a blue link, please download and install that. Then open the program,
and run the update i gave you within the program itself.
If you get stuck let me know. This will allow the quark update to recognize fonts. it is NOT compatible with your el capitan.
This is a way to bypass it.
Tomorrow is fine. I will be on until late afternoon EST.
Can you try this for me?
The QuarkIinvisibles font is installed during the QuarkXPress 7 & 8 installations. It is used to display custom (invisible) special characters, such as the em space and flex space, when View > Invisibles (Command-I) is selected. In this case the QuarkInvisibles font is installed but does not load when QuarkXPress is launched. The failure in this case is due to a Permissions/Privileges issue for the QuarkXPress Fonts folder.Give Read & Write access to Everyone on the Fonts folder at the following locations:
For Mac: Hard Drive:Applications:QuarkXPress 8:Required Components:Fonts.
I am not sure if i can get this resolved without looking at it further myself in remote. I am going to open this up to another expert for their input.
Quark 8 is not compatible with El Capitan only version 2015 or higher....
"Please note that due to the extensive changes in the OS X El Capitan release, Quark does not intend to provide support for running El Capitan on versions of QuarkXPress prior to QuarkXPress 2015. QuarkXPress 3-10 users who plan to migrate to El Capitan should upgrade to QuarkXPress 2015 prior to migrating OS X."
There is no point trying to make it work I have been through this before, it may work briefly but it is not stable.... try clearing the font cache: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/21536/fontnuke
OK good luck, did you clear the font caches?
