Delay when opening documents in Quark 6.5

Delay when opening documents in Quark 6.5

I'm working w/ Quark 6.5 on a Mac G5 on OS 10.4.11. When I want to open documents, sometimes it takes a really long time for the document to appear on screen. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

RE: Delay when opening documents in Quark 6.5

...it can do if for example if it is a huge multi-page doc with lots of graphics...

...are you referring to just any/every doc like a 1 or 2 page file?

...you can try deleting the prefs file, which fixes quark oddities usually, move this folder out and relaunch quark to rebuild that folder:

Users > "Your UserNAME" > Library > Preferences > Quark > QuarkXPress 6.0

...also worth noting there is an update to 6.52 if you don't have it already:



RE: Delay when opening documents in Quark 6.5

..if you still notice problems after this, then another area to look at is the extensions manager...

...in quark choose utilities > extensions manager > look through the list for any extensions that aren't needed other than the default ones...

...it isn't easy to tell which are the default ones from here, but i have provided a link here where you can download my saved export, you can import that into the extensions manager to list the defaults:
