Is the CurrentDirectory function still broken? Looking at https://smath.com/bts/Is...IssueDetail.aspx?id=4586 its unresolved?

I am on 0.99.7579.3197

No matter where I save the .sm file, it ALWAYS returns "C:\Program Files (x86)\SMath Studio\"

This breaks many of my include statements and excel file imports/exports as I have them defined as -

path:= "xls\workbook.xlsm"

root_dir:=CurrentDirectory(""Wink

and then

path:= concat(root_dir,path) will return

"C:\Program Files (x86)\SMath Studio\xls\workbook.xlsm" instead of

"C:\Users\someguy\JobFolder\xls\workbook.xlsm"

I know that this has come and gone a few times with both uni and AlexM weighing in on it, but I thought it was fixed.

Is there a fix?

CurrentDirectory() is just a wrapper for the system variable Environment.CurrentDirectory (.Net). So it can't be broken. With an empty argument, it shows the current folder specified in the program and nothing else.

It looks like SMath Studio doesn't change the folder when saving the document. I addressed this question to Andrey. Let's wait for his answer.

If it is based on Environment.CurrentDirectory then result will differ according to the way how you have opened SMath Studio:
- If opened clicking on program icon - current directory will be equal to SMath Studio installation directory;
- If opened clicking on the Worksheet file - current directory is a folder where file is located.

I recommend to use CurrentDirectory(DocumentDirectory()). This should work for files which have been saved at least once.

What it does is quite straightforward. It gets the directory of the currently active document and sets the current directory to it. Both functions are from Uni's mathcad file access functions plugin.

This way you can have multiple documents open at the same time. When switching between them, the directory is changed once you execute the document.

In your case you could set the root to DocumentDirectory().
