We have recently installed a windows 2003 server in our print shop to serve as centralized storage for Quark express files.
Unfortunately, the files are currrently stored on an external disk, that is connected to the Mac, and they have names with unconventional characters in them such as "Marry 1/2 page flyer".
Such file names can't be saved to the windows server until the "/" is removed.
Well, we know that we can use ABFR to "batch rename" all our files. But we still have a problem with Quark. If a Quark file refers to an external file, that it can't find now becuase of the name change, we need to point quark to the new file, and when Quark brings it in, it looses the attributes, position size etc. It brings it back top left corner at 100%.
Does anyone know of a utility / extension that will allow us to replace one file with another in Quark without loosing the attributes ?
