Hi Rob,

Thanks for reporting this, will see what can be done about this!

Is it correctly understood that you see this when using mcplot (Matlab) from mcgui?

I’ve discovered a reasonably large problem with the mcstas-2.0 option to create directories for output with long paths.

Matlab has a limit of 63 characters for variable names. The way that the variables get constructed in the mcstas.m file then breaks with a relatively short path.

e.g. /home/user/instrument/with_sample/with_sample_date_time               etc. etc.

This results in truncation of the variable names.

My guess is that the mcstas.m script needs to be modified to shorten the variable name stored in the ans.mc_detector

Not sure where the stuff that builds the output is located though
