I have an old Mac running Quark version 6. The MAC is slowly heading to the grave yard. Some times you have to wait several days before you can boot to a desktop - YEP, it's failing. Unfortunately the company relies on Quark 6 to create business cover pages, and we don't have the original software.
So, I went to Quark and downloaded version QuarkXPress 2018 on a Windows Pro 7. Yep, I'm about to be hit with all types of compatibility, file format night mares. The first problem I got past related to version. I downloaded/executed QuarkXPress Document converter tool. I was successful in bringing old files up to date, yet I received the following error:
Please note that any web or interactive layouts will be removed during conversion!
These layout types are no longer supported in QuarkXPress 10 and later. “New C-4908_9X.qxp” uses fonts not installed in your system.
Helvetica 95 Black
Helvetica Extra Compressed
B Eurostile Bold
I was able to open up the files from the MAC PC via Quark. Unfortunately, the format/font was not correct. I need to be able to recreate the same cover pages as I have done in the past. Is there anyway of recreating this environment?
I have done some research, It appears I'M not the only one trying to copy over MAC fonts to a Windows environment. I understand they are written in a different format (DFont). Has anybody had success with this?
