I think I found a problem in the code. I assume you have your papers folder set 
relative to the document? In that case it may not find the papers folder from 
the orphaned files feature. I’ll have this fixed in the next nightly build, 
unfortunately just too late for the release. You could also work around this by 
setting a fixed papers folder in your Autofile preferences.
