I think I have found what makes the difference here: Revolution doesn't
like folder names with a fancy ƒ at the end.
I have tried the basic import script that Klaus sent me, (See below,)
on a bunch of different text files. The script does not work if the
file I'm trying to "put" is a folder with one of these fancy "f"s at
the end. (You make it on the Mac by pressing opt-f.) If I remove the ƒ
at the end of the folder name the script works.
Is it supposed work this way, or is this a bug?
