Problem with answer file with type command

Hi Tore,

This works fine for me. At the bottom of the dialog, there should be a 
menu where you can change the file type.

Normally, the file type in "PNG|png|PNG" would be PNGf, so it should be 
"PNG|png|PNGf", but I believe this is no longer relevant since OSX 10.5 
or 10.6.

Best regards,
