Quark files from 9.2 to 2015

Post by myerlee » 03 Oct 2016, 18:34

Upgraded to Quark 2015 from Quark 9.
When I open a file from 9, work on it, then save it I get a second file with same name.
Is this because it has updated the current file to 2015 and keeps the old one?
Tried save as with same file name, same result.
Is there a way to just have it just replace the current file and not do that? I can't find a preference.
Many Thanks
Lee

Hello myerlee,

This is because in QXP 9.x we are not saving the file with extension ".qxp" - that's why it is considering both the files different.
Add :.qxp" at the ned of the file then open it. I believe this will solve your issue.

Thanks
Rohit

Thank you for the reply,
Slightly better I guess than deleting the old file after the new one is made. At least not confused as to which is current.
I guess I should have had .qxp on all my files in the past. I thought we were all over that 10 years ago.
Wish there was a way to change all old files at one time.
Regards,
Lee
