Summary

Variable filepath for non English users

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v4

Operating system version

OSX 10.10.1

Description of the issue

In most countries (like the Netherlands) OSX as well as Filemaker is translated.

In a variable file path the path is like the translation.

E.g. (In Dutch): file:/Mcintosh HD/Gebruikers/downloads/administratie.

I couldn't get het variable file path working, until I discovered that "Gebruikers" has to be replaced with the original English term "Users".

Ik took me a lot of time to find out and for non English users this is very confusing.
