variable saving address

November 23, 2012 | 1:06 pm

i would like there to be a text box entry to control the name of a text file without there being a save as box opening. something like the $i1 argument which would fit into the message box, like so (write K:/smile/$1/smile) where $1 is a persons name, is this possible with a message box? i cant seem to get it running.

looks like your save path is not correctly formed – write K:/smile/$1/smile would indicate that you have folders for all the different names set. You should also watch out when using paths like that that you handle spaces in the path correctly.

This is a fairly robust and easy to edit way of dealing with paths. Notice how the path output if different if the name has a space in it.

is it possible to have Max create a folder on a drive automatically?
