This specifies 3 different prefixes to test:
.  /  and  Figures/

If one works, then great.
e.g. with   includegraphics[scale=0.75]{01-00-01.pdf}

the filenames tested are:
.01-00-01.pdf
/1-00-01.pdf
Figures/01-00-01.pdf

I'd expect that the last of these works, but not the earlier two.

./Figures/01-00-01.pdf  is the same as    Figures/01-00-01.pdf

These should be the same, so either both working
or both failing is consistent.
What is the correct path to the images ?

Hope this helps,
