My QuarkXPress app crushed today...
My QuarkXPress app crushed today. I was in the process to cutting and pasting several photos and text from our alma mater, Augustan College in their big win in the NCAA tourney.
After pasting the info, a message appeared that "Quark had quit working" and shut me down. Repeated attempts to open the Quark file ended with the same message.
I did restarted my desktop and tried again to no avail.
I am concerned about losing my file. What should I do? Howard

it sounds like that file is already corrupted.

there are some tools and services that you can use to fix it

Other than that your best bet would be if you had a backup of the file and you can open that and reload the images.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
