LW 8.5.1 glitch with Preferences file? I cannot confirm this as yet but Luke Hamburg claims: "Easy install of LW 8.5.1 software seems to remove the LaserWriter 8 Prefs file from your Preferences folder. Apparently this file is no longer needed. However, I have had this cause a problem with KeyQuencer 2.1 (specifically the "usePrinter" function no longer worked to switch printer configurations). Putting back an old copy of my LW 8 prefs fixes this problem."
Update: Richard Blanchard replies: "With LaserWriter 8.5.1, the Preferences file has moved from the top-most Preferences folder into the Printing Prefs folder in Preferences. The Installer removes older LaserWriter drivers and therefore also removes the older preferences file. KeyQuencer may work if an old Preferences file is placed in the old location, but whatever mucking it does in that old file will have no effect upon LaserWriter 8.5.1."

Novell NetWare Never having used Novell's NetWare, I often find it difficult to respond to questions about problems with this software. Happily, a recent MacInTouch column in MacWEEK, summarizes some recent information.
