import-bmp "Format specifier/argument type mismatch"

I would like to import a bitmap into my PCB design using the ULP script "import-bmp". Everything seems to work fine: opening the bitmap, selecting colours and even when I click "show BitMaP" in the final dialog window it is able to properly show me my bitmap. But then I click "OK", which gives me the following error message: 


Error: <html>/Users/<my_username>/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/webdeploy/production/730a059d1ffbbf4403b5320eacd667066bfc243e/Autodesk Fusion<br><br>Format error in call to 'printf()':<br><pre>"...s/230203 bitmap patterns/10 dpi 10%.bmp' (0 %.4f);\n"<br> ^</pre>Format specifier/argument type mismatch</html>


How to solve this problem?

Hi @infoBKDH3,


Try renaming the bitmap so that it doesn't have the % sign in it. Special characters in filenames can sometimes create problems and I think that's what's going on here.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
