As I live in Europe I'm obliged to purchase QuarkXPress 10 Europe Edition (download only) for the price of € 1.399 or $ 1.890,61.


Guess I'll stick with ID which includes many languages (including Dutch) for just $ 19.99 a month.

What is the difference with version 5.2.6?

I compared the two apps side by side and they seem exactly similar to me.

Why should I pay $19,95?

I am a loyal paying customer and am very annoyed that the new Photoshop features are for Creative Cloud subscribers only!

I own CS3 Master Collection, CS4 Design Premium, CS5.5 Design Premium and CS6 Design Premium.

Check out the new features of PS Creative Cloud version:

Good for you.

At least one person is experiencing the same problem on the Binaryage support department so I guess it is a real problem.

Do you have any other system enhancements installed?

Do you work with multiple desktops?

Again and again and again.... This is *really* getting boring:

You are opening the application “The Unarchiver” for the first time. Are you sure you want to open this application?

The application is in a folder named “Utilities.” To see the application in the Finder without opening it, click Show Application.

I always get 'do you want to open this application for the first time' warnings when I launch this app.

Any ideas how I can turn this off?

With this version I also experience weird things when working with InDesign 8.0.1.

Pages seem to randomly zoom out when I switch to a different page in the layout.

For example: I am at page 1 @ 100% zoom level and I want to copy something from page 1 to 2. So I use the copy and paste keycombo's and the next page keycombo alt-pgdwn. A second after I switched to page 2 the zoom level suddenly decreases to 76% (something like that) and when I switch to page 3 the zoom level is even further decreased to 25%...

When I downgraded the Wacom drivers to 6.3.3-3 the problem was gone.

Looking very good, especially with add-ons Attachment Options and Attachment Tree installed which results in a comfy list of attachments with file sizes like it used to be in Entourage.

Attachment Options lets you choose between a collapsed or expanded list. Wonderful.

Mail and Outlook should have this. Makes life so much easier!

Stay away from this.

Attachment handling is completely rubbish. Who actually does want truncated filenames?

And whats even worse: Postbox has the worst support for paid software I ever encountered. Buy our software! If you need support look at the MozillaZine Forums! LOL

There's definately going something wrong here. When I switched between Classical and Vertical view I first got wrong senders, eg email from MyFonts appears to be sent by Postbox, then I only could select 2 emails at a time or even 3 at a time. Now I see that all mail in column view is listed twice..

Any chance grouping of email by day is going to be emplemented? Please with ability to turn it on/of. Makes browsing email so much easier.

Looks very nice but can't get FTP to work. Every time I put something in the Path field I get strange error messages like:

"Server denied you to change to the given directory

Last Server Message: 221 Goodbye.

Please make sure that destination address and login info are correct."

I am sure the Path is correct as I double checked. I maintain the FPT server myself and FileChute and Transmit work just fine. It seems like Deliver Express can only see files or folders which are in the root of the FTP server.

Also, something weird happens wheb I resize the Destinations window...

So I guess I'm staying with FileChute.

I get a lot of these errors when I double click a Word doc to open it in Word 2011:

The same file opens normal in Word 2008.

Anyone got a clue…?

Somehow the text in my firts post did not make it to the comments. Here is the error message I get a lot:

"This is not a valid file name.
Try one or more of the following:
* Check the path to make sure it was typed correctly.
* Select a file from the list of files and folders.
(filename of the file I was trying to open)"

Found a solution for older FE releases at

Downgraded the InDesing plugin and now efverything works just fine.

I am surprised that not a lot of people are experiencing this problem. Or not a lot of people are reading this and/or are not experiencing the same problem...

Anyway, no news from Linotype yet. I mailed the problem a few days ago so I guess there are not a lot of complaints and I'm sure its related to my system which is a Early 2009 Mac Pro Quad core 2.93 Ghz with Mac OS X 10.6.2 btw.

InDesign freezes with the FontExplorer plugin installed when I open a document which contains fonts which need to be activated. Its completely reproducible, when I remove the plugin InDesign opens the document just fine. When I install the plugin InDesign freezes and needs to be Force Quit.

I cleaned system and application font caches, repaired privileges, trashed InDesign prefs but to no avail.

Anyone else having this problem?

I have installed PithHelmet using Pacifist but now Safari sometimes downloads a file called "blocked" and when I try to trash this I get "The operation cannot be completed because the item "SIMBL" is in use. What's that all about?!
