Hi Yvo,

Thanks for making this latest version available. I just downloaded it.

When trying it out, I encountered one problem. I had been working on this scene
in an earlier unofficial version of Mac POV (3.7.0.unofficial, Feb 22 2014).
When starting the latest version of Mac POV it failed to load one of the .inc
files I had open. In the console I got the following error:

19/06/16 11:41:55,573 POVRay_3_7_0_Final_Unofficial[3138]:
-[NSDocumentController
reopenDocumentForURL:withContentsOfURL:display:completionHandler:] failed during
state restoration. Here's the error:
Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=256 "The autosaved document
“Basket-Moves.inc” could not be reopened.
An unknown error has occured." UserInfo={NSUnderlyingError=0x106e83ef0 {Error
Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=256 "The file couldn’t be opened."
UserInfo={NSLocalizedFailureReason=
An unknown error has occured.}}, NSLocalizedDescription=The autosaved document
“Basket-Moves.inc” could not be reopened.
An unknown error has occured., NSLocalizedFailureReason=
An unknown error has occurred.}

When subsequently I tried to open the file explicitly this also failed, with the
following error: The document "Basket-Moves.inc" could not be openend. An
unknown error occured.

I did manage to figure out the problem. The file contained the following
comment:

// Don't stack Part E.

I typed the apostrophe using the normal keyboard key, but the editor of the Mac
POV version I had been using automatically "corrected" it to a fancier one,
which required a more exotic character encoding (one that showed up as a
question mark when catting the file in the terminal). After reverting the
apostrophe back to a normal one, I could open the file also in the latest
version of Mega POV. Maybe you can improve the error message?

On a related note, I did notice that in this later version the auto-correction
that caused these problems is disabled again, so that's good. It already caused
me problems whenever I typed double quotes (used for strings and include
statements), whose auto-corrected versions resulted in syntax errors when
POV-Ray tried to parse them.

Kind regards,
Erwin

Hi Erwin,

Can you e-mail me a file causing this error?

I can not reproduce this.

Everything works fine with my few tests.
Great job as usual

Hello Erwin,

In one or the other version the option to substitute quotes with fancy ones was
ignored. I had to hardcode it.
That is fixed but older files can cause problems.

BTW: It is a general option in the system preferences panel under
'Language & Region'  bottom of this panel "Keyboard Preferences" >> Text
panel. "Use smart quotes and dashes".
This was always 'forced' off in PovRay, no matter what settings used in 
this panel.

I will have a fix for the inlcude file you send me.
An improved error message when a file can not be read. But files like
Problematic-Basket-Moves.inc are no longer causing problems and load!

Thanks for reporting this!
A new version out in a few days!

Yvo,

Thanks (yet again) for updating the Mac version. Hugely appreciated! You are a
super genius of the highest order! Without you my robot could not live.

Thanks,
Alan.

Thanks!

However, there are forces in the universe that does not share your 
opinion because my
modem was struck by lightning yesterday and could not be resuscitated.
But the WiFi in my brain is strong enough to upload RC2...
