ok, to be more precise... what is the absolute path on a Mac? All pathes I can see start with "/Users/". .. Any Mac-expert in your team?

Anyway - I worked around it by uploading the images to a server, and used the URL.

Hi,

If using the local datasource option, you need to provide the absolute path for this file, this file has to be readable by your webserver.

Hi,

I try to import attachments from a local folder on Mac-OS, but always get the "Errors: (File doesn`t exist on local filesystem.)" What is the correct input for the location field?

/Users/...path to the folder../file.jpg

doesn't seem to work.

Thanks, Jan
