Gotcha. Can it be worked around in the meantime by manually setting a Sigil temp path (one that doesn't contain any symlinks)?

Brilliant!

I am going to push a change to use the same approach to resolve relative segments in absolute paths and see if that will work for all platforms (even our broken one!)

To make matters worse, I am not sure how the Qt FileWatcher handle symlinks if we register it one way and the change comes from an alternative path.

We really want to use absolute paths without relative segments everyplace and be consistent to work around the inconsistent versions on macOS.

So I have taken a shot at pushing that with the only use of canonical is to the application to be launched in OpenExternally but that is used on Windows only so should be fine!

Just pushed the change.

The one in Windows (which is brand new, by the way) may not even be necessary. I just wasn't entirely certain how cmd might handle quoted paths containing relative segments (if that situation could even arise). It was a CYA inclusion on my part. Could be overkill.

I have the same result.

I pm'd you on MobileRead with a link to a hopefully fixed build of Sigil for mac. Please give it a try and let us know if all is okay.

Thanks,

I have not gotten your PM. I let a note on feedback asking about it. Post the link on Github issue 448 maybe?

Yes and about 2 days of missing sent messages are gone from my sent mailbox as well.
Strange!

When we get things stable again, I will send you a new link.
