If you mean as in the image, It opens at the correct file location

Could it be the fact that I am saving my cases on a different drive than the OS and the installation drive of Freecad and Openfoam?

Ahhh, I just removed the CFD add on (original add on) leaving only CFDOF and now it seems to work fine!

Yup, that's what I meant. This is the command that CfdOF executes to open the folder, so I am stumped.

Do you mean that it actually fixes the edit folder issue? I did not expect that...

Sorry, I thought it did, but tried a new case and have the same problem again - nevermind, it's not a big problem, thanks for looking into it!

This is the command I see when I click edit

Code: Select all

Successfully wrote OpenFOAM case to folder B:/CFD/freecad/Newfolder
Please edit the case input files externally at: B:/CFD/freecad/Newfolder\case333
Which is correct, but the window that opens is C:\Users\Woody\documents

Ahhh, now, if I type in RUN

explorer B:/CFD/freecad/Newfolder\case333 (which is the address CFDOF is issuing) it opens up at my Documents ...

if I reverse the slashes as in

Code: Select all

B:\CFD\freecad\Newfolder\case333
we get the correct folder...

Great, thanks. Pushed an update that should fix that.

Perfect, thank you! That appears to have solved it for me!
