file naming conventions
Feb 07, 2014
I ssaw you replied to a thread about file names - Could you confirm something for me please?
"I changed the file name of the attached PDF to exclude underscores, numbers"
I was having the exact same error and I used your suggestion to fix the issue. My file name was too long. After I shortened the name and re-attached it to the resources, it opens without error. Thanks for the help.
...and I seem to remember seeing a link to:
Where it says:
Avoid using special characters, accents, or symbols in your file paths and file names. Learn more about naming conventions in this Microsoft article.
For the last 20 years I have been using underscores and alphanumerics including 0 thru 9 but avoiding other 'special' characters.
The Microsoft article says:
Use any character in the current code page for a name, including Unicode characters and characters in the extended character set (128–255), except for the following:
The following reserved characters:
< (less than)
> (greater than)
" (double quote)
/ (forward slash)
| (vertical bar or pipe)
? (question mark)
Are you saying that there could be issues with file name length, using underscores, or using numerics with filenames in storyline?
