QuarkXPress postscript errors

I'm looking for some info on postscript errors.
Occasionally I will get a PS error in a Quark document and it won't print. I get a warning from the computer and some garbled stuff comes out of the printer.

Unfortunately, I don't get any info on what the nature of the error is or where it is in the document and I end up re-creating the docunemnt from scratch.

How do you troubleshoot postscript errors and where might I find some good info on them....

Postscript errors and Quark go hand in hand. We got them all the time and its usually something goofy like either a corrupted font or simple weirdness in the file. Re-saving a copy of the file usually cleared it up.

Re-saving almost never works for me.
So all there is to do is pluck things out one by one to see where the culprit is or make a new file?

Quit out of Quark then Try trashing Xpress Preferences and Xpress Temp (if it is there).

I would also trash Printing Preferences.   And check the version of printer driver you are using and if your printer is PS compatible.

The Printer is Post Script compatible, but the pref trash sounds like a good idea I will try it...

Hi. IME PS errors from QXP are usually font related or corrupt item. Depending on the size of the document, you can create a new document  and drag things in from old to new. You don't have to actually print, you can see if printing to file creates same problem. HTH, Steve

I had some problems liek that. If it's not a font, i may be an illustrator logo. If so, just found out which one it is and re-save it.
