Automating font replacement in Quark Xpress

Hi,

I have a number of Quark Xpress documents that are sent from colleagues who use Mac OSX, Quark 6 regularly. They use a number of fonts that I don't have on my PC, and every time I open a document I am prompted with the replace font dialog. Is there a way to set defaults for these font replacements, so that I don't have to go through the list every single time I want to open a document? We cannot change the way the documents are created on the Mac side.

As a side question, is there any reason why Quark doesn't recognise some of the fonts on my PC - for example, I have Wingdings and News Gothic installed on my PC but they always appear in the replace font dialog?

Thanks,
JP

You may have the fonts installed but the Mac users probably used the Postscript version where youre using something else. Fonts can also come from different foundries and have the same names, but not the same ID, and thus dont get recognized.

The solution is to wait for Quark 6.1, there will be font mapping rules built-in, that you can customize yourself. 6.1 is suppose to be out in January.

About the fonts not being recognized, I can just conform what weed said, the internal FONT_IDs matter, not so much the font name.

Hope that helps,
Matthias
