I can’t upload a Portal archive to Quercus from my Mac

Apple’s Safari web browser automatically extracts ZIP files once they are downloaded from Portal. Quercus expects Blackboard exports to remain zipped.

This can be avoided by using a different web browser to download archives from Portal or temporally disabling this feature in Safari and re-downloading the archive from Portal.   To disable this feature in Safari go to the menu and select Safari > Preferences > General > and unselect “Open safe…”.


Unselect Safari's "Open safe..." option
