Quark 6 and OS 10.3

Sorry if this is the wrong forum...not sure where this belongs - Recently upgraded several machines to OS 10.3 that are now running Quark 4.1 - it runs in Classic pretty poorly - now in the process of upgrading to Quark 6 - would prefer to use InDesign but it is not a real choice here.  I have only been in this office a few months - most of the Xtensions they have have been accumulated over time - mostly no one here even knows where they even came from.  I have looked on powerxchange.com to try to find all of my xtensions but can't find most of them - any suggestions on where to find where these xtensions came from and what they do so i can find out if and when  there are updates for Quark 6 available?  I have very little to go on here - I spoke to Quark and they were less than helpful.

Best i could suggest is doing a Get Info on the extension itself and see if it gives any version/creator information.

wow - i actually had the same exact idea on the way home today - i couldn't really see any other avenue to go down  :)  - i am learning...for a guy who didn't know squat about macs, quark, fonts, or anything like that 6 weeks ago i guess i am doing OK - experts exchange is helping me a lot - hope i am not too much of a pain in the butt - i will leave this open a while longer and see if there are any other words of wisdom out there - thanks

Don't overlook the obvious ... if you can find the directory where Quark stores the extensions, and they have sufficiently interesting and/or unique filenames, try Googling them (gotta love that verb!).  This may help you track down what company issued them, once Get Info has told you what version you have...

Found that about 6 of my xtensions are already in Quark 6 - For a few I was able to find the third party vendor - most of them just say "Quark Technology Partnership"  I was curious...what does that exaclty mean?

The other question I had was - is it possible that some of the functionality we were using xtensions for in Quark 4 is now built in to 6?  I want to have my designers just try to use it for a bit - and see what they can't do - then we will know what we need.

Its entirely possible that some of the extensions have been rolled into Quark 6.
