    That's a pretty good analogy Rod. Wish I had thought of it.

    Well it’s pretty much the “For Dummies” version but it’s how I think of it. Obviously a bit oversimplified but that’s all I know.

    Does that sound right guys?

    There are some pretty good not too techy explanations out there like this one:
    What Are 32-Bit and 64-Bit Apps, and Why Do They Matter? | The Mac Security Blog


    Or just google for other hits using:
    mac advantage for using 64-bit programs
    mac advantage for using 64-bit programs - Google Search

    Thanks Bob, Illustrator is another on my list to 'get away from' paying for the monthly subscriptions when I just don't use them on a daily basis

    Daily programs usage-I'm fine with paying for, certainly makes sense

    I will look into the Affinity Designer you suggest here

    Patrick, thank you

    Very illuminating, read a few articles there; as techy as I want to get

    Got some ideas for a few steps I will take

    OK chscag, thanks, that sounds like my easiest first step

    10.14.3 Mojave is what I'm at, Patrick

    Made a big leap off my trusty MacBook Pro 2009 model; and everything's different! I know, wah

    No, it's been a few months and I'm used to it, but you said it great-Don't appreciate when I like how things work, and they do work, and the you get forced to 'upgrade/update' to what you don't even want or need, lose what you like, and then have to 'deal' with the fallout, time consuming

    That's for darn sure, no freebies

    Using CS 2014 now, and my 'old' Quark 8.5.1 treats me right, most days, ha

    CS is subscription, which I don't love

    Quark Office and Acrobat I pd for (and that is fine) the last round

    New eye appt in 2 weeks! need to update my (not too bad-75$, compared to my reg glasses prescription-will not be updating those)

    Eye dr calls them monitor glasses, .25 off of your reading glasses number if I remember right

    Challenging for sure, and getting the MacBook and then the big display placed right so i can see all of it

    Which one tho Rod? That's what I'm all tangled in, 2010 2014 2016 ...
    Too many comments on their particular year, mixed with their particular OS

    1/2 say it works fine, 1/2 says its a big mess

    How do I know which combo is going to be right?

    Kittie, you've been using Quark for some time. I you ever need to access older clients work and make changes rather than re design, you'll need need access to Quark. Designers I know that are reliant on Quark to access old work often keep Quark running on an older Mac, or have a bootable partition with an an older OS running the 8.5.1 you are using. Hopefully you can soldier on with your current setup.

    Yep, soldiering on for sure! Thanks for your comment

    No no, that was my Old Mac, still hooked up in another corner of the office, can't even remember the OS on that one, worked pretty well for 7-8 yrs, then just too gummed up with info pics and projects

    Anyone elses thoughts on WHICH Office version i need to buy? upgrade? update? to so it runs with my current Mojave for Mac 10.14.3

    Isn t there a 'chart' or something somewhere, I hate to be buying it blindly, just hoping they will play nice

    For your office documents, do you need to share documents that are editable between different people/users? If you only need to send them, or for your own references, then you can use Apple's versions, iWork - Apple.
