    Hi
    My panels store data on files saved in the user documents directory. On Windows I have no problem, the files are created right. But I’m getting reports from two people having troubles on Mac, the files aren’t created, at least in this place.

    I’m using File.getSpecialLocation(File.userDocumentsDirectory) to access folder c:/Users//Documents. Is this the same on Mac? I don’t know if it’s a write protection issue or what. Can someone shed some light, please?

    Thanks.

    I’ve installed a VM with Mavericks, Ctrlr 5.3.122 and while I can create a directory, I can’t create a file. This is the code I’m using

    fileBankName = string.format("%s %s%s", "Bank", "A", ".nam")
    tempFolderFile = File.getSpecialLocation(File.userDocumentsDirectory):getChildFile("My Folder")
    if tempFolderFile:exists() == false then
         tempFolderFile:createDirectory()
    end
    tempBankFile = tempFolderFile:getChildFile(fileBankName)
    console(""..tempBankFile:getFullPathName())
    if tempBankFile:existsAsFile() == false then
        tempBankFile:create()
    end
    

    Is something wrong?
