I have an indexed group in one of my databases.
All the files are stored on iCloud
(see my post Limited access from a PC?)
I created a new RTF file in DVT, from scratch.
I named it " ?test"
and DVT saved it as " -test.rtf "
Any explication about that ?
Thanks in advance
I assume you are using the abbreviation DVT for DEVONthink?
The phenomenon you are describing is caused by DEVONthink maximising the compatibility of the file name with the file system. See
this thread for a discussion on the topic.
this thread for a (more up-to-date) possible solution (be aware of the possible sequelae, however - basically: don’t do it).
+ are “special characters” for either the shell or the file/operating system. Just don’t use them in file names.
Thanks for your fast response. I’ll read the threads…
and also thanks for the precisions
We encourage people generally to use only hyphens, underscores, dots, and spaces in filenames.
