You are correct. Gregory has this problem. It depends how your hard
drive is formatted. Some file systems have a limit to the number of
files allowed in a directory. Using long file names decreases this
limit even more.
I am using NTFS (NT File System) and have not had this problem on
Windows XP. I created a special download of the IMWA into category
folders for Gregory, but I didn't modify SignText so that he could use it.
When the IMWA 1.3 is release, I will try and get SignText to work for
all file systems.
