best way to save folder path?

February 21, 2013 | 9:43 pm

Hi,

Im trying to save the paths of some folders with text edit, but textedit is adding some unwanted characters, due to the spaces in the folder paths. Just wondering is there a good way of handling this?

Generally, as I metioned just before on another post, I tend to avoid using spaces in path and filenames with Max (for this reason), but using [fromsymbol] might be useful if the spaces are too difficult to avoid.

[tosymbol] should take care of the space issues. When you load a filepath with spaces, it gets quotes around the whole thing:
