    i have a question. it.s not a real problem, but a little annoyance. I name an appleworks document and it adds the .cwk extension to it. No problem, I simply rename it and delte the extension from view, but then everytime i open it, edit, and re-save it adds the .cwk back again. Any help?

    I suspect what it happening is that when you delete the extension in Finder, it just turns on the option to hide the extension, rather than actually deleting it (It will prompt you if it actually tries to change/delete an extension). Then, when AppleWorks saves it, it shows the extension again.

    To stop this from happening, you need to properly delete the extension. To do this, get info on the file, and delete the extension from the name in the "Name & Extension" section.
