Applies to : MAC and Windows


Solution:


An application font folder is now available by default at the below-mentioned locations: 


Mac:

  • Root level: Fonts will be available for all users: (/Library/Application Support/Quark/Fonts);

  • User level: Fonts will be available for a specific user: (~/Library/Application Support/Quark/Fonts)

Windows:

  • Root level: Fonts will be available for all users: (ProgramData > Quark > Fonts);

  • User level: Fonts will be available for specific user: (Users/<current user>/AppData/Local/Quark/Fonts);

  • Users can install or copy/ paste fonts in either or both application font folders. While one folder allows you to install fonts to be available for all users, the other folder allows you to install fonts to be available for a specific user. 

  • Among the Application font folders, Application fonts at the Root level have the highest priority, followed by Application Fonts at the User level and then the Application Fonts packaged with the Digital Publishing- Flex Templates which have the last priority during font enumeration. If the same font family is available in more than one application font folders: Root-level, User level, Digital Publishing- Flex Templates; then the font styles available in the font folder having the highest priority among them will get enumerated even if the number of font styles in these folders differ. 

  • If the application fonts folder contains the same font but in different font formats, then the fonts of a single format will be enumerated and the priority defined for the font formats is in the order- OTF, TTC, TTF, Type1, CID, Bitmap. 

  • If the application fonts folder contains a font family having font styles but of different font formats, then the font styles of a single format will be enumerated and the priority defined for the font formats is in the order- OTF, TTC, TTF, Type1, CID, Bitmap. 

  • Fonts installed in the application fonts folder will be available for QuarkXPress 2020 and future QuarkXPress releases only. 

  • Fonts installed in the application fonts folder will not be available for any other application other than QuarkXPress. 

  • Fonts installed in the application fonts folder will be automatically activated on launching the QuarkXPress application and will be available for all new and existing projects.

  • On removing fonts from the application fonts folder, those fonts will be deactivated.

  • In Usage dialog, the fonts used in the project will display the correct font path.
