I'm making a Max patch that needs to drag and drop files onto a dropfile and then load the file up into a text object to do processing/converting.
When I simply prepend "read" to the output of the dropfile and connect it to the "text" object, it can't find the file... well it's right there in the place where it can't find it... So I tried using "conformpath" to convert the file path into another format and what ever format I put it in, it can't find the file:
error: Text: can't find file HD:/blah/text.txt - when that is the correct location.
Any pointers anyone?
