Re: BF does not open files by means of directory alias [SOLVED]
Thanks both, Olivier and Alistair, for your comments. I tried to use a
symlink (via terminal) instead of Mac alias ... and it worked!! it seems
that such sort of alias is not very well appreciated by BF so I'll have
to create all using symlinks ...
Olivier, I faced the same problem with Scribus and Gimp. I'll try to
check with them symlink now.
