QuarkXPress Takes a Long Time to Load

To reduce the amount of time it takes QuarkXPress to launch, follow the procedures below:

  • Use a font management utility to load only the fonts needed at one time.
  • Copy the PPD's for the printers that you use into a custom PPD folder that you have created and use the PPD Manager to point QuarkXPress to that folder.
  • If you don't need a certain XTension or filter, move it to the XTensions Disabled folder of the QuarkXPress folder.
Background:
QuarkXPress will load and manage all fonts active in the operating system. If you have a large number of fonts, QuarkXPress will take a longer time to launch. In the same way, you only need to load the PPD's and XTensions that you actually use. The fewer things QuarkXPress needs to manage, the faster it will load.
