A very good point, I found the defaultFolderPath was set to;

/Users/paulhibbert/Library/Application Support/RunRev/Documentation Cache/9_0_0_dp_1_commercial/IDE

After I had been using the dictionary I presume.

So that wasn’t going to work out well! In fact LC9.0.0(dp1) did write the file, it just wasn’t where I expected it to be, but that’s because I didn’t control the destination in my (quick) experiment - another lesson learnt. :)
