Quarkxpress For El Capitan

Hi all,

QuarkXPress 2018 QuarkXPress 2018 is officially supported on MacOS 10.14 (Mojave), MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra), MacOS 10.12 (Sierra), Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), Windows 10 (64 bit), Windows 8.1 (64-bit) and; Windows 7 (64-bit). Please note that QuarkXPress 2018 – being a pure 64 Bit application – will not run under a 32-bit flavor of Windows. Quark Software has released the El Capitan Update to QuarkXPress 2015. With the El Capitan Update, QuarkXPress 2015 now officially supports the new OS X 10.11. The update is Mac-only and free for all current QuarkXPress 2015 users. It can be downloaded using the built-in Auto Updater in QuarkXPress. The QuarkXPress 6.5 is not available for purchasing, but you can upgrade to the latest one which is QuarkXPress 2017 for 399 Euro. This is the price for versions 3 - 2005.


I have extracted the 'support by operating system' section out of the platform support FAQs:
Version by operating system (QuarkXPress 7 to 2019)Quarkxpress el capitan
If you are planning to use the following operating system, here are the QuarkXPress versions that have been officially supported (or still are) on it:Quarkxpress for el capitan alex honnold

The QuarkXPress document converter only converts legacy QuarkXPress 3.x- 6.x documents to QuarkXPress 9.1 but does not upgrade its flow version. When a user opens such a converted document in QuarkXPress 2019, then the text flow version will get upgraded and it will become equal to the document version. Will QuarkXPress run on El Capitan?

Please read this: http://www.planetquark.com/2013/11/05/b ... roduction/
And – as written in the other post – 'not supported' does not necessarily mean 'won't work'. It just means that Quark didn't test this combination and will also not help you to make this run, it is up to you. If you need technical support by Quark, please use a supported combination, which has not reached end-of-life.
Thanks
