Hello, You made it's very good, for FreeMind, thank you.

On the new version 0.9, the directory do not accept any more "space", it is a problem for my card

    I don't know if this is the same issue, but I am also experiencing issues with "white spaces" in directory and file names.

    Version: Freemind 0.90 on Windows XP Professional SP3

    When creating a file and saving the file to disk, I select a directory with name "Project Folder". The .mm file is stored in a NEW directory called "Project%20Folder" on disk.

    i.e. the whitespace is converted to "%20"

    For the iperlink(text file) My directory is "C:\\\Toto 123" this text is not valid if my directory is "C:\\\Toto_123" it's good

    This stat is made on the version 0.9.0 and not on the version 0.8.0

    By the way: is it still the same problem, if you create these links with 1.0.0 Beta3 and try to open them later?

    Confirmed with Freemind 1.0.0 beta3 (git 2012/05/21) on Arch Linux.


    freemind test.mm

    Doesn't work:

    freemind "test 2.mm"

    freemind "test 2.mm"


    Checking Java Version...
