Re: File naming conventions in Acrobat
I remember reading in Adobe's documentation for Acrobat a suggestion to use the 8.3 naming convention (that is, 8 characters before the dot and a three character -- PDF -- extension). Reference was made to the compliance to DOS file naming conventions, if memory serves me.
[rustle, rustle, rustle...I'm looking for that quote...]
AHA -- I found the reference: (from Adobe's Knowledgebase)
"Naming PDF Files for Distribution
When creating PDF files for distribution over a network or via an e-mail system, keep in mind that many network and e-mail programs truncate long filenames. The safest way to name the PDF files you plan to distribute is with the MS-DOS filenaming convention (i.e., an eight-character filename followed by a three-character extension). "
We are still chained to the evils of 8-bit systems!
