Links: not recognizing file name if there are embedded spaces

Postby sniles » Tue Feb 11, 2014 1:42 am

With the "Detect file names and convert them to PDF links" setting set in the "Links" section of the Printing Preferences (and not the "check if file exists before linking"), any filename that contains embedded spaces/blanks is not treated as a PDF link.

c:\users\documents\file1.pdf ..... works

c:\users\documents\file 1.pdf ..... does not work

Really hoping for a solution. The product works beautifully for my needs, but this one issue is a real showstopper.

Unfortunately we don't have a solution for this, since the space will "break" the link in the resulting PDF. You can have that as a hidden hyperlink though and have the add-in detect and convert it.
