Question about Computers & Internet
Have you checked your preferences to see if auto-save and auto-backup are on? I assume that you are working off of a server. I am having the same issue when working off our server. If I click to open a file it will create a duplicate with the name "copy1" attached. I can save once only, subsequent saves must be made using "save as". What is actually happening is that the first save is activating the "Stationary Pad" option, that can be seen by "getting info" on the file. If I uncheck that box the file will open normally, but the option will be re-activated after the first save. The only workarounds that I can see is to open files by dragging on to the application, or to use the "Open" command from within quark. This eliminates the duplication, but after the initial save you still have to use the "Save as" command.
I've had the same problem as you guys. I found a little bit of a workaround by opening the file directly in QuarkXpress instead of double clicking on the file to open it. So far it seems to work.
Check out this website http://www.macwindows.com/quark.html it has some good info on how Quark works with AFP servers. We are having the same duplication of files problem, with Quark 6.52 files opening in Leopard.
A number of folks in the local MUG (Mac Users Group) have said that they have run into weird problems with Leopard when it was installed using the upgrade option. But when they went back and did a clean install (wipe and install) that cleared up the problem.
Thanks Have a nice day.
