Quark Question - newbie pulling his hair out!

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Patrick Olner, Sep 8, 2003.

  1. Hi - I know that this is for photoshop but I can't seem to find a NG
    specific to Quark Xpress - if anyone can help solve my problem and let
    me get some sleep I'd be forever grateful ...

    I've designed a leaflet in Quark V4 with 2 pages, page one prints
    great but... for some reason if I change the dpi on the printer to
    greater than 320 I lose the text on page 2! Not the photos - they
    print fine, just the text and only the text on page 2! Page 1 is great
    ... photos and text but if I change the dpi page 2 is knackered and
    loses it's text!

    I'm using an Epson 2100 printer, Photoshop V7 and QX V4.
    Any help ... please .... I am at the point of talking to
    myself...rescue me from this insanity ...
    many thanks, Patrick

    What kind of computer do you have? (Mac? PC?)

    What operating system are you using?

    What font is that text set in? What kind of font--PostScript? TrueType?

    Are you printing to a PostScript RIP for your printer?

  3. Hi - sorry it's a PC running Windows XP - the font is arial, it has an
    '0' symbol next to the font not the TT for true type. The printer is
    an Epson 2100 - sorry don't know what a postscript RIP is ...

    I've had a development I can use text on a curve and it shows up on
    the second page at any dpi - but it still won't print a text box at
    anything but 360dpi - oh it'll print the box background but not the
    text within it ...

    any ideas?

    You mean "O", not zero. As in OpenType.
    Raster Image Processor. Takes the code generated by the layout app and
    makes it into the image the printer needs to print. The brains, if you
    will.

    Postscript is the language and is the defacto standard for professional
    offset printing.

    Your 2100 doesn't have it, but you can buy a piece of software.
    Quark is designed for a Postscript environment. Non-PS printers throw a
    number of problems into the loop. If you've got Acrobat Distiller, I'm
    willing to bet making an PDF and printing from Acrobat Reader will work
    fine.
