Hi @nico,

Thanks for taking time to report the issue! I believe we have this logged here.

Do you have a .gh file that we can test when we fix the issue to ensure it will work for you case?


Hi Curtis,

Yes, it seems it is the same issue.
Sorry for reporting an already known problem, I only checked on the forum and not properly on youtrack:/

To test if it is working, I think you just have to use the “read file” component in a blank grasshopper definition.

Have a good day,

That’s no problem, having it posted on the forum will help others find it too. (;

(It also gives me a mental note to bump up its priority the more I hear about it).


This should be fixed in the latest RhinoWIP. Please give it a try.

From the quick tests I just did, it seems to be effectively fixed.

Have a good day,
