QuarkXpress times out printing to PDF file.
Posted on 2006-04-09
O.K. here goes.
I have one Mac G5 computer running in a networked environment. (with 2 other Macs)
The 2 main apps it runs is QuarkXpress 6.5 and Extensis Font Suitcase.
There are quite a few fonts running and usually loaded on the machine. (over 1,000)
I know that is an ongoing issue, but it is the nature of the work of this machine.
We run font Doctor, and Font Finegler, periodically, to clean and purge the cache and any corrupt font.
We have a need to generate PDF files directly from Quark, but recently the program "times out" when trying to create the PDF, or it will simply quit the program saying "the program quit expectedly". Earlier it was saying. "PostScript driver has not responded for 60 seconds..." but now, it is simply "quitting" Quark.
Previously, an occassional reinstall of the program might correct the problem, but I've tried that 2 times, with no success.
My designers aren't really "hands on" when it comes to tweaking their own machines, so if there is a font management program that would help us manage this problem, that might work best, but I'm open to any suggestions.
