Thanks again for such fast and helpful responses!! It turns out the problem was precisely the lack of a ‘/’ after ‘file:’ I only had two ‘/’.
Thanks also for pointing to the file-type attribute solution. I knew of the existence of this attribute but I didn’t know you could use it like this. In my case the link solution is more useful because I have a note containing pointers to different folders. It was cool to see that clicking on the folder icon on top of the note would open the folder in Finder, though
I have another little challenge for you guys. Just after fixing the problem with the links it occurred to me that if I open the Tinderbox file on a different computer (my laptop, for instance), I won’t be able to go to the linked folders because the name of the Home folder will be different.
The rest of the path would not be a problem because all of the relevant folders are stored under the Dropbox folder which is inside the Home folder and so the path would be the same in all computers after the home folder. The different names for the Home folders in different computers will be a problem, however.
Can anybody suggest a solution for this? I’m thinking that the only way out of this is resorting to scripting. Creating an applescript that replaces the name of the Home folder for the adequate name in each computer would do the trick, I think.
I can consult an applescript manual to figure out how one would do that but the problem is that I don’t even know how to integrate scripts in Tinderbox (i.e. how to call a particular script from within TB). Is there any tutorial on how to work with external scripts in TB? I haven’t been able to find any info in the official Tutorial.pdf
