can't open files in 5 saved down from 6

hello.

so if a document begins its life in quark 6, then gets "saved as" down to 5, the people at my office who only have 5 installed on their machines can't open it. no error message, just nothing happens.

anyone else have this experience and, if so, did you figure out a way to solve it?

thank you.

I have never had this problem. I always save the v5 file with the .qxd suffix (even though I'm on a Mac), and I always rename the v5 file so that I can save it to the same location as the v6 file that's being downsaved.

If you try this, does that help?

We had this problem, but changing the name when saving (instead of trying to replace the old file) seemed to solve the problem.
