  • Opening Quark files w/Fusion open

    Anyone having trouble opening Quark 7 files (taking foreverrrrrrrrr) w/Suitcase Fusion? Turn Suitcase Fusion off & it opens quickly, but then you have to open Fusion & activate some of the fonts by hand????
    Thanks

    Are you by any chance using the auto-activation Xtension? I would speculate to guess that this would cause the slowdown especially if you have a large font library.

      you might want to try Linotype FontExplorer.
      It work's better with Quark than Suitcase and it's free.

      here's a link:

      I use it on all our macs here and have had very few complaints if any.

        I think Fusion is server based. I also love FE but for those with fonts on a server it's not gonna work.

          Another vote against auto-activation here. Also, quark will occasionally fail to recognize fonts that load fine in ID, AI, etc. If all else fails, I put them in my library/fonts folder and relaunch quark.
          Another reason why ID rules.

            Does it help if in Quark's Suitcase Fusion Auto-Activation Preferences you click off "Activate fonts in embedded objects"?

            Worked wonders here, both in Quark & InD.
