There are two possible ways to resolve this issue:

  • Down-save the Word document to “Word97-2003&6.0/95-RTF(*.doc)” format and import into QuarkCopyDesk 7.31.

  • Copy the problematic text to another Word document and import I into the QuarkCopyDesk Article.


MS Word automatically inserts a non-breaking space around quotation marks when text is entered in French. The behavior occurs because there are non-breaking spaces in the text. The problem only occurs with some older version files and can be addressed by creating a new file in MS Word.
