Hi Paul,

This works as expected under Windows, but under OSX using LC904 STABLE, 'the result' is the same as the 'it', both contain the file path selected.

tested on macOS 10.14.5 with LC 9.04:

on mouseUp
  answer file "sdsdds" with type "PNG, JPEG|png,jpg|"
  put it & CR & the result
end mouseUp

IT = the filename, but the result = EMPTY!

However I am not sure this is really a bug!?
From the dictionary about "anser file ... with type..."
If more than one type is specified, a drop-down list containing the tags will be displayed allowing the user to select which types of files to display. (This list is always displayed on Windows systems).
This mentioned drop-down list does not appear on macOS!
I never saw it on macOS, only on Windows.
