Why can't I find PPD Manager in QuarkXPress 10? How can we add auxiliary PPDs in QuarkXPress 10?

Background :
Quark enabled its users to control the PPDs that could be activated in QuarkXPress independent of the Operating System. In bringing QuarkXPress to a closer alignment with the Operating System; it makes sense for QuarkXPress to use the same PPDs that are enabled in the Operating System and if a customer wants to disable a PDD that they don’t use, they can disable it in the Operating System and QuarkXPress honors that.

Solution:

To enable a PPD in QuarkXPress 10:

  • Quit QuarkXPress 10.
  • Go to; Mac HD > Library > Printers > PPDs > Contents > Resources
  • Paste the PPD in the Resources folder.
  •  Launch QuarkXPress 10.

 You will see the PPD available in PPD dropdown under Device tab of Print dialog box

 

To disable a PPD in QuarkXPress 10:

  •  Quit QuarkXPress 10.
  • Go to; Mac HD > Library > Printers > PPDs > Contents > Resources
  •  Remove the PPD from Resources folder
  •  Launch QuarkXPress 10.

PPD will not show in PPD dropdown under Device tab of Print dialog
