Important Note for Windows Vista Users: If you are running a user account that has administrator privileges and User Account Control (UAC) is enabled, you cannot drag and drop a QuarkXPress project file to QuarkXPress to open the project. Also, you cannot drag and drop text or picture files to import them into a QuarkXPress project. You can get around this by disabling UAC or administrator access. Also, you can use File > Import to import text and picture files.
