If you created a table in a layout, and set properties such as color, shade, text angle, and skew for cells of table column 1, then changed the content to picture content and ran an AppleScript, it returned junk. This issue has been resolved.
If you applied a bleed value to an EPS file by executing an AppleScript®, it did not produce the specified bleed value in the actual output. This issue has been resolved.
Mac OS 10.3.3 only: If you created a project with a couple of pages in it, made a picture box on the first page and another one on the second, grouped them, and ran an AppleScript to add reference to the boxes, it returned incorrect references and displayed alerts. This issue has been resolved.
If you imported an EPS file with a Pantone® ink into a picture box, converted the imported Pantone ink to a process color (Control+click the ink in the Colors palette and choose Convert to Process from the context menu), modified the EPS file, and updated the picture in the layout, it resulted in a new Pantone color name with an asterisk prefixed to it in the Colors palette. This issue has been resolved and now the color retains the name it had before the modification.
If you created a project, imported an XML file into it, saved it and then opened the project on a different operating system, dragging the elements of a DTD into a text box caused QuarkXPress to quit unexpectedly. This issue has been resolved.
If you created a project, imported elements from a DTD and an XML file saved on the same location into a text box, saved it and then tried to open it, it displayed an alert "Invalid document structure" and lost all XML file(content) information. This issue has been resolved.
In a layout, if you renamed an image, its status displayed as Missing in the Picture Usage dialog box; updating the image still displayed its status as Modified, instead of OK in the Picture Usage dialog box. This issue has been resolved.
Mac OS 10.3.3 only: If you imported an SCT,BMP,PICT or PNG image with a clipping path into a picture box, QuarkXPress quit unexpectedly. This issue has been resolved.
If you imported an image with an embedded path into a picture box and applied an embedded path to it, deleting the applied embedded path caused QuarkXPress to quit unexpectedly. This issue has been resolved.
If you imported a picture into a picture box, saved the project in a specific location and then moved the picture file to the location of the project, it displayed the status of the picture as Missing(Utilities > Usage > Pictures). This issue has been resolved and QuarkXPress now locates the picture files that are in the same location as the project.
Mac OS 10.3 only: If you created two text boxes, one larger than the other, in a print layout, then anchored the smaller box in the larger one; and tried to synchronize text (Style > Synchronize Text ), QuarkXPress quit unexpectedly. This issue has been resolved.
At times, QuarkXPress quit unexpectedly while opening legacy documents with layers. This issue has been resolved.
If you exported only selective layout pages as PDF, the anchors specified on the pages did not take the user to the destinations defined in the anchors. This issue has been resolved.
If you imported a PDF with rotated content into a layout, and rotated the same PDF to any degree, then exported it as a PDF, it did not get exported correctly and displayed an image that did not exist. This issue has been resolved.
If you created a PostScript file from a layout (File > Export > Layout as PDF) with the PDF preferences set to Create PostScript File for Later Distilling in the Preferences dialog box (QuarkXPress > Preferences > Application > PDF), a copy of the PostScript file was created in the "jaws emp" folder in addition to the specified folder for saving the PostScript file. This issue has been resolved and the PostScript file is now created only in the specified folder without creating a duplicate copy in "jaws emp" folder.
If you placed a cropped PDF file in the center of a picture box, it did not center properly. This issue has been resolved and the cropped PDF files center correctly in a picture box.
The name for a PDF file in the Preferences pane (Edit > Preferences) does not default to "Project: Layout.pdf". It remains "Layout.pdf".
If you imported an EPS file into a picture box with no font embedded, and the font is not available on the system, saving the layout as an EPS file still displayed the font as embedded in the EPS file. This issue has been resolved.
Mac OS 10.3.5 only: If you tried to print text from a layout using ITC Zapf Dingbats font, QuarkXPress displayed a PostScript alert. This issue has been resolved.
If you tried to print a layout with a cropped PDF file embedded as a picture, it caused the picture position to be printed incorrectly. This issue has been resolved.
If you tried to print a layout using a Xerox PPD (File > Print > Setup > Printer Description), QuarkXPress quit unexpectedly. This issue has been resolved.
Mac OS 10.3.3 only: If you created a project with specific Czech characters using Helvetica CE, Geneva CE 9 or 10 point size and printed it to any PostScript printer, the spacing between the 9 and 10 point characters appeared different from other point sizes. Also, when printed, negative kerning was applied for all capital characters along with positive kerning for lowercase characters. These issues have been resolved.
