Description Alassane 2013-01-30 02:58:54 UTC
ForwardPDF fail when trying to compile and forward in a folder whose parent or itself contain at least one character.
For example, put a .tex file in a folder tree with one of its folder containing the character ' (character code 0x27)

forwardPDF fail with the folowing message:
Shell meta characters that cannot be handled are present in the options to the tool.

Maybe there are other instance in witch it fails but haven't found one yet.
Seems like this issue existed for some time:
