Chattergoofy with jabberwocky sets from Quark
02/15/07 at 12:22:41
 
I exported a few jabberwocky sets from Quark 6.5 on my Mac and then copied them to the chattergoofy folder in my documents folder as instructed by the readme. The problem is that these sets from Quark don't work with chattergoofy in InDesign when I select chatter from the API menu. The supplied NZEnglish.JAB works just fine, but when I replace it with ones exported from Quark nothing happens.

Could it be the file format? The files exported from jabberwocky have names like English Jabbering and Klingon Jabbering. I noticed that these had no extension, like .JAB. So I added the extension but still they will not work. Has anyone had this work? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Dear,

Normally, the extension is not relevant - .JAB files originate from Windows, Mac files don't have an extension. ChatterGoofy should recognize both types.

How many computers are involved? I.e. is this a single computer with Quark 6.5 and InDesign, or are multiple computers involved (e.g. a Mac with Quark 6.5 and a Windows with InDesign)?

E-mail us a copy of one of the Jabberworky exports - we'll have a look to see what is wrong with them..

Mail to [email protected]

Cheers,

Kris

Hi Kris,

I'm emailing you the sets that I exported out from Quark 6.5.

Regarding computers involved, there are two - both are Macs running OS X. The only reason for this is that the computer that's running InDesign CS2 doesn't have Quark on it. I just exported the sets, copied them to a common server volume, and then from there to the Mac with InDesign.

Thanks for your help,
