    I am using Quark 6.5 to write Postscripts to later distill as Printer Ready PDF's. When I write the postscript out of Quark I want the postscript to take on the same name as the Quark document. Right now I either have to re-type the name , leaving lots of room for error, or leave it as "Layout1."
    There has to be a way to do this ,,I hope.

    Any help would be great.

    When you are in your printer dialog choose adobe pdf as your printer. Then hit the printer button the bottom of the window. Next choose output options from the pulldown menu in the middle. Select postscript and make sure the save to file checkmark is checked. hit save and it will ask you to save the file. Name it what you want and save. Then go back and hit print. It should create the postscript file for you with the correct name.

    you can change the name of the layout when you create the document or you can go to Layout..Layout properties and change it there. When you go to print your file it will have the name of the layout not the name of document.

    That's because layouts are now separate 'documents' within a Quark file — it can contain multiple layouts of varying sizes and attributes within the same file (project).

    Name your layouts upon creation or in 'layout properties' and you won't have to worry about this anymore.

    Thanks for the info--
    I will use an applescript to do this automatically going forward..That way when I get tons of files in from clients I can just fix them rather than trying to explain and count on them to do it.
