Dear Max,

After a quick check (TeXmacs 1.99.11 on Windows 10), I can confirm that there are some troubles with network drives:

- “Load" and “Save as” file requesters do not work when using a network path (e.g. “The file //somenetwork/somefile.tm cannot be created“ error message appears in the status bar when saving) (Btw, slashes instead of the expected backslashes are used in the error message. I noticed that when saving on the local filesystem backslashes are used in the status bar).

- Double-clicking  files in a network drive opens  them, can be edited, and successfully overwritten using “Save” (in this case the status bar reports “Saved \\somenetwork\somefile.tm”, with backslashes). Can also be saved to the local filesystem using “Save as” and pointing e.g. to the C: drive.

- Export file requesters: pdf and ps work normally, .pdf and .ps file are correctly written to the network drive, all other export formats give the same kind of error as above.

- Autosave works.

Best,
Lorenzo

Dear all,
somebody on facebook made to me a vague remark on the fact that TeXmacs cannot open "network drives". I'm not really sure what he meant (and I really do not want to ask, the guy was not very friendly) but I guess that it could relate to Windows. Does somebody has experience with working in a networked environment in Windows. I think is pretty common. Do we have some information as to whether this works or there are indeed problems?

Best,
Max
