The universal file format lets you open and edit a project created in any current or previous language edition of QuarkXPress. Item Styles, Item Find/Change, and the Guides palette help you to work smarter. Quark Interactive DesignerTM lets you create SWF output with no coding required. You can even import native Adobe Illustrator files.

QuarkXPress 8 delivers superior design power through a new, intuitive interface developed purposefully for the creation of high-end page layout and includes new features such as built-in print, Web and Flash® authoring tools, advanced typography control, and global publishing capabilities. QuarkXPress 8 also offers users an enhanced design experience so they can work faster and smarter by quickly and easily accessing the tools they need.

@kandyflip: five characters as the last part of version 8 serials are typical for QXP 8.

What may perhaps be an issue is that the given # is for version 8.0 and not 8.02
I don't know if that is a problem but it may or may not be.

@PBP: Sorry to hear it fails for you. I don't have an answer, but Franky may call in later with a better response regarding QXP 8.02.

Would you be able to add version 7.31 to our archives? It's missing from the sequence of QXP versions here and we may be able to get it working. Thanks, should you be able to help.

QuarkXPress 8.02 Passport freezes on launch after install and then crashes - no error message. I have QuarkXPress 6.5 Passport installed as well - I have my own old hard copy - it works but wanted a more recent version. Tried a hard copy install from EBay of QuarkXPress 7.31 with Validation Code in package, but unable to launch QuarkXPress 7.31 after install - hangs/freezes and crashes - "due to a missing or damaged color management component. Reinstall the application. [1000]", QuarkXPress 7.31 on an Apple OS 10.5.8 Power Mac G5 PPC processor.

Just installed and tested it on my G5 10.5.8. Works like a charm.

YW! Yep, it is very merveilleux. Wink A version can hide another. Smile The 7th is still missing. Never mind, now, someone has found an alternative for the 6.1 update I see. And you have this one if you want to replace the 6th at least. Wink
