Modern Myths

Modern Myths

I have very mixed feelings about cross-platform compatibility. On the one hand, moving documents and graphics between Macintoshes and PCs sometimes works like a charm. On the other hand, sometimes the strangest things happen and it can cause horrible nightmare scenarios (of course, right on the eve of a deadline). Although QuarkXPress is very similar on the two platforms, and tries its hardest to make cross-platform issues irrelevant, there are clearly issues that are beyond its control.

Nonetheless, because more and more people are finding themselves in that “third-culture” arena—where they are literate on two or more platforms—transferring files is becoming almost commonplace. No doubt, with a dose of experience and a patient hand, you may soon find yourself making the process more or less painless.
