I came across https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/lahw2k73ffqf6b283h0x4/file-list-to-collection.lua?e=2&rlkey=zm1xb47or...  which is probably what i need.

I am getting errors when asseccing to command:

catalog:findPhotoByPath (photoPath, false)

When the photoPath has hebrew fonts in it i see this:

danl42831687_1-1718874577563.png

 

How can i fix this?

Thanks...

Actually I managed to get it working.

I renamed the problematic folders.

Fromwhat i've read, LR can't handle non english in scripts.

Hmm, I wrote that script five years ago but don't remember it! Toubleshooting steps:

 

1. In LR Library, select that photo, right-click it, and do Show In Explorer.

 

2. In Windows Explorer, that file should be selected. Right-click it and do Copy As Path.

 

3. Paste that path here.

 

4. Attach the "files.txt" file you've been using here (as an attachment -- don't insert it).

In general, LR does handle arbitrary Unicode characters correctly in scripts and plugins. I tested that script with a folder containing Cyrillic characters.  There have been a few bugs inside LR proper with non-US-English characters in file paths, but they're usually in very obscure corners of the app.

It didn't in my case and after renaming all is working well.
So thanks for this script!
