Drive letters again (in the right place?)

All our projects reside on a PC server. All the PCs in our office have a drive letter assigned to the projects folder.

When I open these files up on my mac the searchpath is jumbled and when it asks for missing Maxwell files the dialogue is too small making it impossible to reconnect the textures. Like this: ... 111549.jpg

The view from inside the texture dialogue. Also note that swedish characters are not displayed properly. ... 174956.jpg

I am not sure if this needs to be fixed in the Next Limit end or if this is a FormZ issue... But it is very frustrating making it all but impossible to collaborate on projects.


And more (in the right place)

Hunting down another bug related to searchpaths. It seems Maxwell gets confused when non-english characters are used in the file searchpath name.

The material that Maxwell complains about here shows up nicely inside FZ but look at the square symbol should have been an oumlaut o or in other words รถ. ... 180526.jpg

A tip...

Also I was given a tip to set up a search path for the textures and materials inside Studio. After doing this I again tried opening the file inside FormZ. After pressing cancel when asked to locate the textures I opened the file in FZ. Now of course the material links in the textures were not valid. I then exported to Studio in the hope of re-attaching the materials through the preferences of Studio. This reliably crashed Studio. I can send the file if you want.
