Quark 6.0 Fixes

Here's an actual headline from a current Quark web page:

"QuarkXPress 6 technical difficulties reported for Mac users"

What a scoop! LOL

Okay, at least they're being upfront about it. The technical difficulty they're referring to has to do with what happens to your Quark Activation when you upgrade from Jaguar (OS 10.2) to Panther (OS 10.3). What happens is your activation goes bye-bye, and in some cases, a message appears saying you have to reinstall the entire application because it's corrupted.

What if you want the pasted item to appear at the exact same page coordinates as the original item?
