Yesterday, I created an OPW document containing a series of JPEG images. The 
images were reference, and saved in a subdirectory inside the directory 
containing the OPW document.

Today, I changed the name of the directory. Understandably, OPW I couldn't view 
the images inside the OPW file. So, I saved the file as DDL and edited the DDL 
(picture references) with the new path name for the directory (using Notepad) 
... and re-saved the DDL file. However, when I tried to open the DDL file with 
OPW, I got "File format not supported". Is that supposed to happen?

If I set the directory name to what it was originally, I can open the original 
OPW file and view the images. And when I save the file as DDL, OPW has no 
problem recognizing the DDL file format.

What have I missed?
