Generic icons

Post by Quarkhorse » 04 Oct 2016, 13:10

Dear all.

When I save a QXP 2016 file now to my desktop, the icons have reverted to generic QXP icons, rather than icons w/ previews of the first page of the file.

Any ideas? I'm fairly certain I haven't accidentally changed any settings on my Mac (El Cap) or in QXP.

Much obliged,
J

Hi J,

and command+J please? There's a check box to show icon previews.

Thanks
Matthias

Apologies for the crummy image (launching Grab makes the command-J window disappear).

Danke, Matthias.

The first did not work.

The second gives me:

com.quark.xpress.doc -> /Library/QuickLook/QuarkXPress.qlgenerator (5.1)
com.quark.xpress.v6 -> /Library/QuickLook/QuarkXPress.qlgenerator (5.1)
com.quark.copydesk.doc -> /Library/QuickLook/QuarkXPress.qlgenerator (5.1)

And when you hit "Space" you do see a preview? Or not?

Thanks
