vuo.file.exist gives a wrong result

Workaround: Yes, but less stable. Would like to use to determine if the app can access the internet.

Loading a file increases the risk of malfunctions because a file can be deleted

Yes, the File Exists node only supports local files/folders. If you are interested in whether or not you app can access the internet, we could add a new node that checks that. If that's of interest to you, please create a feature request so we can find out if others in the community are also interested.

When we (Team Vuo) plan each release, we try to implement as many of the community's top-voted feature requests as we have time for.

If anyone would like to help this happen sooner, we're also accepting open source contributions and commissioned work.
