Hacking Your Old QuarkXpress for the New Mac OS (Big Sur)

 


Yegads, I upgraded my Mac OS to Big Sur (11.1) and…crap on a stick!…my QuarkXpress 2017 won't work. So I called them and was told I had to upgrade for $395/year on their new subscription business model and no, they weren't going to issue a fix for 2017 because it was "end of life."

Guess what, sports fans? I dumped Adobe over their swell new Photoship/InDesign monthly licensing scheme, and damn well didn't want to support Quark in theirs. AND ANOTHER THING! There are alternatives to Adobe and there are alternatives to Quark. Free ones. Better user interfaces and better functionality.

Want to replace Quark or InDesign? Try LucidPress.

Want to replace Adobe Photoshop? Try Krita.

Down with these Adobe and Quark greedheads!

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
