Hi Alejandro,

Yes, I think you got it right. I was hoping the shortcut to work. I am not very active on the windows version lately, only on Linux. Therefore, it is not so easy for me to provide a lot of support here, unfortunately. Is there any chance you can use a different folder without spaces?

Hi Pieter,

Do you mean create a shortcut of the coverage folder in the C :, for example?
I have done this but the direct access is still redirected to my source folder, obviously with spaces and I have the same problems.
I think I have not understood you very well, I'm sorry. Attache screen

Hi Alejandro,

Thanks for sharing. Spaces in paths are indeed an issue and I can check how to solve in a new version. Meanwhile, you could use a workaround by defining a shortcut to C:\Users\Alejandro Chamizo\Gescuencas. Right click on that directory in your file browser and move the shortcut to a directory without a space (and of course rename the shortcut to a name without spaces). Then use that shortcut for all your paths in the plugin.

I hope that can solve your problem.

first of all congratulations for your job.

I'm using QGIS plugin pktools, but I have problems with paths than contain spaces, like C:\Users\Alejandro Chamizo\Gescuencas

Change my name user now is imposible. Is there any way to solve this problem?
