    I know I used to know this command line command. But it has slipped away from my memory pan.

    So, the symbol and effects path had a #, but now has a @.

    What was the command line command to fix that ?

    Thanks.

    I thought it was meant to be a @ ?

    The command to update old maps is FFIX

    FFIX is a name devised by lesser beings because they were unwilling or unable to use of the command's far more elegant and true name.

    I'll confess to not knowing its true name and accept my place as a lesser being. ;)

    It does what it needs to and that is a great thing for those of us with many, many old maps.

    So.… complete ignoramus here... is it meant to be a # ?

    Thats it ! FFIX it is.

    If my brain was working today, I would have thought 'fix'. Oh, lets try that. Doesn't work. Then tried afix, then bfix, etc. got down in the alphabet to ffix, it works !

    It used to be a #, but is now a @

    Of course, I have a few thousand older maps, and have to use FFIX to update the path references.

    You can use MFFIX to fix multiple maps at once.

    Note that the lesser being Joe refers to here is Ralf, and the true names of the commands are
    CURFILECONVERT
    and
    MULTIFILECONVERT

    I think Ralf prefer the shorter names, and I have to agree, as they are quicker to type, but they are just macros of the simplest kind.

    The original name FFIX was a shortcut for was IMAGENAMESINSTALL2RESOURCE, which is quite a mouthful, and I guess why Ralf figured a shorter macro was in order. Don't use this command anymore though, CURFILECONVERT is much better.

    I'm very grateful for the shorter versions. I can't even read those longer ones without my dyslexic brain jumbling them all up in a mess. EDITSHADING is about as long as I can manage without getting a series of "CC3 does not recognise this command" errors :P
