Subject Re: velocimacro.library - all specified required?
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2015 20:43:06 GMT
Glad you figured it out. I must have been thinking of the default macros
file lookup, which used to "warn" with a big error message. I suppose it
makes sense that a specified, but missing file be treated as an error.
Though that's certainly a debatable behavior.
