Hi

I used the file viewer (files > file viewer), to browse for some files. I navigated to a folder, and clicked the "show files" button, and the files showed in the file viewer as expected. I then navigated to a different folder, and in this folder was a file or two that was invalid (for some reason - as you might be able to tell, the files are rather old). When I hit the "show files" button, I got the following message:




The mouse cursor was invisible when the mouse entered that window, so I had to guess where it was), when I selected no - cancel reload, I was then presented with:




Again without the mouse cursor when the mouse entered the window, and again I had to guess where to click OK. The file viewer then seemed showed the files correctly (including the ones that it errored on)

I would be useful if the mouse cursor was shown in the error windows in this case.

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Post your questions on the forum where everyone can see them and add helpful replies.
Heavens Richard, that is an old file, from Templot version 0.45 (Dec 1999) or earlier. :)

See this ancient web page:

 http://templot.com/martweb/gs_version_068.htm

Those old .box files will open ok in Templot2, but Templot will be looking in the same folder for the matching .ixt (information text) file containing the associated info and memo texts. Otherwise you see that error message.

.ixt files were abolished in version 0.48.

You have probably mislaid the .ixt files in moving .box files around over the years.

The only real solution is to open the old files in Templot2, and re-save new .box files.

I will investigate where the mouse cursor has gone. Note that you can answer the questions by pressing the number keys on the keyboard shown on the coloured bars.

regards,

Martin.

I don't think the files are that old, but they might be. I've not overly bothered by the files, I just thought the missing cursor was odd.

I can upload one of the files here, if you want to take a look at it.
