Chapter 23. Print > To add PPDs to the PPD manager list:

To add PPDs to the PPD manager list:

1.
Mac OS: Install the PPDs in the System Folder > Extensions > Printer Descriptions folder.

Windows: Install the PPDs in C:\Windows\SYSTEM.

2.
If QuarkXPress isn't open, launch it now.

3.
Choose Utilities > PPD Manager.

4.
Make sure the Folder path for the PPD folder is the same as the location that was used for step 1. If it is, skip to step 5.

If it's not the same path, click Select, and locate the folder that contains the System's PPD files (in our Mac OS, it's the System Folder > Extensions > Printer Descriptions folder). When the correct folder name appears within the Select “[ ]” button at the bottom of the Open dialog box, click on it.

5.
In the PPD Manager, click Update. Any PPDs that you just added to the System folder will also be added to the current PPD list.

6.
Make sure a check mark is present in the Include column for any PPD that you want to appear on the Printer Description pop-up menu in File > Print (Setup pane).

7.
Click OK.

TIP

Keep in mind that QuarkXPress will only look to one folder at a time for PPDs. So if your PPD files are stored in more than one folder, the PPDs from only one of those folders will be accessible to the PPD Manager (and thus appear on the Printer Description pop-up menu list in the Setup pane of the Print dialog box).
