Remove illegal charters from file names

(1/1)

Spinnaker:
The Metadata capture wizard is a great help, however, the selected text may contain reserved characters that cannot be used in file name.

It would be really helpful if there was an option to remove these characters or have a user option to substitute, e.g. with a "-" or a "_".

List of reserved characters:

--- Code: ---< (less than)
> (greater than)
: (colon)
" (double quote)
/ (forward slash)
\ (backslash)
| (vertical bar or pipe)
? (question mark)
* (asterisk)
--- End code ---

RTT:
Good idea! I've just finished to add code that, if pasting to the filename field, removes these invalid characters from the capture assisted text.

I'm also adding the possibility to execute text format scripts, triggered from the assistant extra format functions button, to extend the current "capitalize, "lowercase" and "uppercase" only possibilities.

Spinnaker:
Happy to beta test  ;)

Any news on when the update with this in will be coming out?

RTT:
I hope to have a new release out in a week or two. This functionality is already coded, so it will be included.
