QuarkXPress and Font Reserve Readers continue to report that DiamondSoft is alive and responding (see item last time). Craig Curtis added a further note about a confirmed problem with Font Reserve: QuarkXPress would crash on a 68K machine (and, in some cases, on Power Macs as well) when using the Font Reserve XTension to auto-load the fonts used in a document. According to the DiamondSoft tech-rep, this is a "recognized problem." The work-around is to remove the XTension. DiamondSoft expects to post a bug-fix update within a few weeks.
QuarkXPress and LaserWriter 8500 glitch Ed Wong reports a bug/hardware problem with the LaserWriter 8500 when using QuarkXPress (and possibly other similar applications): It prints short along the width of the paper. He was coming up 1/16" short on trim marks from Quark on a letter size page. He called Apple about this and they said they know about this and are "working on a solution." Other readers have reported avariety of other Quark quirks with this printer.
