I'm working on an Intel iMac with OS 10.4.8. I have Preps 5.2.1 running on the machine. All of my normal Preps functions have been working like they should with the exception of saving templates. i can build them, but when I get to the save dialog box it runs really slow and I have to wait and pause after each keystroke when I change the name. When I get to the point to hit the save button, the application then bombs out on me. It doesn't matter if I try to save locally, I still get the problem.
Any ideas?

Is that Box running Preps native or through rosetta

I would image that would have to be through Rosetta.
Preps isn't Universal Binary yet.

The current workaround until the update releases is this:
Navigate to where the templates are stored and open this folder in the finder before launching Preps. Then everything seems to work right. This has to do will the communication with the server that is hosting the files.

We keep all of our templates on a sgi server and connect through afp. I can connect throough smb and I don't have any issues, but I lose all of my Mac resource forks and the machine won't recognize a large number of files.
