When I save a document, I'm seeing an odd file name -- numerals and letters -- but not the name I used.  Also, I'm receiving an error -- invalid file format on several saved Pages docs. Has anyone run into this issue?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Are you still using MacOs Lion? Pages version? Using iCloud? Have you done any maintenance on your computer like Repair permissions, deleted cash etc. (Onyx is good for that)?  Restarted the computer lately?

    What language are you using? That commonly happens when you have a different encoding.

    Hi TPSCH1,


    I ended up copying the document to a new doc and deleted the troublesome one.


    To help others who read your reply, please tell how you did this. Did you do Menu > File >Duplicate? Did you Copy then Paste the content of the document to a new blank document?
