Just combine the filepath with the filename to one complete filename:
[sprintf %s%s]-[tosymbol]-[prepend write]-[coll].
The tosymbol will take care of whitespace in the path…
Is there a complete summary available for manipulating strings and symbols in max? For me it’s still not completely clear when quotes are automatically added to or removed from strings, when something is a symbol and when it is a list, what tosymbol and fromsymbol do exactly, when the word ‘symbol’ is automatically prepended and how the %s in sprintf behaves with different types of input.
If there is no such guide maybe I’ll try to put something together myself some time.
