When opening a file in QuarkXPress that was created by an earlier version, QuarkXPress uses the text engine originally used to create the document.
But you can also force a file to be rebuilt using the text engine in the new version of QuarkXPress: this can be useful when working with OpenType fonts, or in a document that has lots of kerning applied to its text.
To do this, go to File> Open and then hold down the Control and Option keys when you click the Open button. (Windows: Ctrl-Alt)
