    The first thing to verify is that there is a single copy of the Vectorworks 2008 application installed. The easiest way to do this is to:


    1. Select File > Find...

    2. Select Search: This Mac & File Name

    3. Enter: "Vectorworks" in the search field

    4. For the additional criteria, have "Kind - is - Applications" selected:




    There should be only a single search result for VW 2008. If there are older copies of VW installed, it will find those as well, but they would not cause a problem. I would then recommend verifying they have installed it in their main applications folder.


    Once it has been verified that there is only a single copy of the application and the Quick Look plug-in, it has been installed in the main applications folder and the user still cannot see a preview of a recent document saved with VectorWorks 2008sp2, the following procedure should solve the problem:


    1. Select the Vectorworks 2008 application itself
    2. Select File > Duplicate from the menubar
    3. Trash the original and empty the trash. The application should now be called 'Vectorworks 2008 copy'
    4. Rename the application to be 'Vectorworks 2008'
    5. Launch and then quit the application
    6. Restart the machine
