QuarkXpress documents
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
Are you still able to open / edit any of those QuarkXpress documents?
Was there any update or change recently to your computer that may have caused the issue?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes, I can open/edit those documents. I had a "trojan" that I recently had to remove and the problem started then.
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
Do you open a document directly in Finder? Or do you open a document by opening QuarkXpress application first, then use the Open option in the QuarkXpress application? Please let me know. Thank you.

I just double click on the icon
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
However, it also works when I use the Open option in the QuarkXpress application
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
Do you mean you double-click on the icon of each documents in order to open it?
Does it open in the correct application (i.e., QuarkXpress, etc.)? Or did it open in a different application previously?
What's the extension of those documents, such as .doc?
When you said previously, the icon was a preview of that document, do you mean you actually could read the content of it? Or it was the same generic preview icon for all documents?
Was QuarkXpress updated recently?
Please let me know. Thank you.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I double click the icon and the document opens in Quark as it always has. QuarkXpress does NOT have file extensions in Mac. Yes, I could actually see/read the preview of the document. Quark WAS update, but AFTER the problem began.
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
What's your QuarkXpress version? Thank you.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Version 9
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I also have version 10 and it does the same thing in that version.

I'm sorry, were you able to download the file "adoview_ql_installer.zip"? If yes, what happens when you open / install it? Does it show anything? Please let me know. Thank you.

Yes, but it shows nothing!!
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
Select a document file and choose File > Get Info or press Command (⌘)–I.
Click the triangle next to Name & Extension to expand the section and see the filename extension for the file.
To show or hide the filename extension, select or deselect “Hide extension.”
Then let me know the extension of it. Thank you.

What Customers are Saying:

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
