>- won't this work because "local settings" is a hidden folder?
"Local settings" is not hidden. The following line prompts ESTK to respond "true":
File ('~/Local Settings/Application Data/Adobe/InDesign/Version 5.0/Caches/Indesign SavedData').exists
The Mac and Windows paths appears to be different.
>- is there a language-neutral syntax for that path?
I don't think so: neither of the 12 Folder class properties (appData, commonFiles, startup, etc) leads you, well, up that path. Apart from the paths available from the Folder properties, the script folder is the only one that I know of that's language neutral because you can retrieve it with a script.
>- is there any way at all to point the open-file-dialog to that cache folder?
I think there were some problems with pointing that dialog to a particular folder.
Peter, thank you for responding,
>I count three
That happens to me all the time. I almost feel like a cardinal ;)
>"Local settings" is not hidden.
Well, I am much more fluent in MacOS than in Windows. In my Parallels installation I could only see that folder after changing my explorer-settings to "reveal hidden folders", though.
>I think there were some problems with pointing that dialog to a particular folder.
That would explain it. It does seem to work on the Mac side. But that's no help, really.
I will tackle this thing from a different direction then. Thank you again for the input :)
