QuarkXPress Scripts menu out of order

Post by jlake » 10 Apr 2018, 15:19

All of a sudden, my Scripts menu in QuarkXpress 2017 v13.2.1 is NOT in alphabetical order. Any ideas how to fix this?

This appears to be an issue with APFS on SSD drives and readdir call, which orders the contents of the Scripts directory by hash order, rather than lexicographically.

I have not found a solution.

Same problem in QuarkXPress 2018. I did notice that QXP2018 now has an Applescript sub-folder within the Scripts folder.
