    I'd sure not want to do real work on a 11-inch display or, for that matter, a 13-inch display. But what kind of work would you really be doing on it since you have an iMac at home? A small MacBook Air...

    It was your post, it was green for a while and stopped being green, maybe it was a bug. Does anyone know what it's called when you see a bad design and get a headache just by seeing it? Is there a...

    Do you mean his user name is green, or his whole post/comment is shaded green? His user name is green because he's been here a loooong time. You should not be able to see green shaded (unapproved) po...

        Does it load into a text editor? My guess is that it's a misnamed postcript or AI file that got lost somewhere between platform transfers.

          What were you expecting the file to be? Was it sent to you? Can you ask the person who sent it to you how it was created?

          Sometimes opening up an unknown file in Microsoft Word will give you clues as to the program that created it. It would appear somewhere near the top of the file. I've used this quite a few times on mystery files with a pretty good success rate.

          Edit: oops, kinda echoed Broacher with my suggestion.

            I have a previewer on my file manager that lets me read the actual hex of a file as an option. Usually the file format info is in the first (or last) couple of kilobytes of a file.

            Sidenote: CorelDraw is the only 'main' graphic program I know of that peeks into a file's header for filetype. In fact, it uses this info first, over the registered extension info. Handy enough to make you wonder why it's the only app that does this.

              Corel is alot smarter than most folks give it credit for.
              It also copies full res to the clipboard from Powerpoint. Not just the scaled screen view. As for .PATH..... fugetaboutit. No such beast in the graphics bidness.

                Yeah, probably someone was using an unconventional naming convention.

                  Someone trying to name the file themselves? Over the years I've have indeed gotten more than a couple .quark and .picture files

                    Thanks!

                    I just think I d not have the application because I try with all application I have, but don't open. I think I will try the printers. Thanks all of you, I just learn from all of you, a new thing! ( I cant ask who created, I am not authorized to do that)

                      I was thinking more along the lines of
                      image.path.b&w.text to describe a Grayscale Photoshop file with a clipping path and a text layer.
                      It's amazing how often I see things like that.
                      I especially like renamed fonts. Mmmm mmm.

                        Yep. Design production on a 'need-to-know' basis. Fun, eh?

                          Try opening the file in a text editor and read the header. This can be frequently handy.

                          No you can't call the client....
                          Why not?
                          They think I'm running the job.

                          Well then you run the damned job it's a POS to begin with.
                          I know it is, that's why I brought it here.
                          I need more information, call your damned client.

                          I can't...
                          Why not?
                          They think I'm running the job.....

                          Go round and round until you pass out from dizzyness, then call it a day in the prepress-go-round.
