Cannot create folder using macro

Postby JohnnyMarauder » Tue Nov 25, 2014 5:29 pm

I am trying to have novaPDF 8.1 Pro (registered) create the folder automatically.

In the novaPDF 8 Properties, I have specified "Use profile" in the Profiles group box and selected the profile that I want to use for default.

Editing this profile in the Manage profiles dialog, General tab, File saving options section, I have declared:
Save options "New Save Options" (I created this)
Prompt Save dialog: Use predefined settings
Folder: C:\W Drive\[N]\
User name: [blank]
Password: [blank]
File: [Y]-[M]-[D]

What it -used- to do in version 7 was create folders and documents under the C:\W Drive\,:
like C:\W Drive\100.PDF\2012-11-25.pdf

When I open the printer in Delphi, I set the title to 100.PDF and the [N] should be picking this up. What is happening is that I am getting the [N] files created on the desktop and the Folder option is being ignored.

Help!

After much experimentation, it appears that the latest novaPDF 8.1 Pro does not honor the [N] macro in the Folder option. It is stripped from whatever is defined and then it attempts to create/overwrite any existing file in this folder path.

If I specify D:\WDrive\Customer-[N]

It creates a folder called "Customer-" in D:\WDrive\

Calling multiple print jobs passing in different Titles just overwrites the current file in that directory instead of creating a folder for each title and then putting the files there.

I have replied via email. However, I was sure that I've exchanged email with someone there that admitted it was a bug and recommended I go back to version 7 where it worked.

Still waiting for a fix for version 8.
