## Synopsis¶

## Detailed Description¶

By default the user can select a single directory as path, unless setAsMultiPathTable() is called in which case a table is presented to the user to specify multiple directories like this:

When using multiple paths, internally they are separated by a ; and the following characters are escaped as per the XML specification:

• < becomes &lt;
• > becomes &gt;
• & becomes &amp;
• becomes &quot;
• becomes &apos;

Some more characters are escaped, you can see the full function in the source code of Natron here
