I recently switched from Quark Xpress on my Macintosh to Quark for
Windows and found that the automatic ligatures feature was no more. I
even found it impossible to get to the font locations for the ligatures
using Quark. I am certain there must be a way, but I was pushed for
time, so chose not to use the standard ligatures that time. I will take
some time and make inquiry as to how to retrieve the ligatures I need
using the Quark on a Windows machine.
I had hoped to search and replace for the ligatured characters, but
could not put the code into place for the ligatures.
