I know the effect. Some of my browsers convinced themselves that flat text files should be saved immediately instead of either display in the browser or open in a text editor. You can fumble this setting back in Windows, somewhere. It changes occasionally. Especially at night.

Thanks - I suspected something like that might be going on.  Not worth a lot of digging - for this purpose I'm just adding a note in my BACARS flows to go to Downloads and print and/or move the OPF pdf to whatever folder I'm using for my flightbag on that flight.  Not sure the text-only thing is only culprit though - the OPF contains all the route and weather maps etc., while the Loadsheet which is just text pops up on the screen as usual when button is pushed.  Windows is a likely co-conspirator - so many things get 'improved' and changed in the background with daily updates now.  But I guess I really don't want to go back to buying a new set of floppies every yearly update cycle  :)

Cheers,
