Subject: Re: Cleaning up file names too long
Date: Fri, 06 Feb 2009 11:14:19 +0100
Here is a tip: You can figure out how long your filenames are by using the Remove function. Set the function to remove 999 chars at pos NN from The beginning of the filename, where NN is the number of letters you have set as maximum. Make sure that both "process filename" and "process extension" are enabled. Now look at the preview column. Any file being listed there is longer than NN!

can remove excessive length. However I found that I need to navigate myself through all subdirectories and regard all display pages to find concerned files.
