Symbol ~ into a file name at Export Persona


Recommended Posts

In order to create a Launch Storyboard Image for a iOS app, I need to use a file name like this:

Default@2x~universal~anyany.png

But at Export Persona is not possible to use this symbol ~ and the file name is convert to Default@2xuniversalanyany.png

Please, could you implement the possibility to use this symbol in file names?

 

Thanks.

Do you need to use the tilde ~ or can you use the hyphen - ? I would think using a tilde in a file name could result in problems on Mac, it is the short cut way of designating the User Home folder.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7.3 
Affinity Designer 2.0.4 | Affinity Photo 2.0.4 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.4 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

A ~ within a file name should not cause any problems. It certainly doesn't on Linux or other UNIX-like systems, and Mac is now one of those :)

A "." represents the current directory, but it doesn't cause problems to have one in a file name...  same with the tilde, it only represents the home directory (folder) when it is used on its own; it is the specific name "~" not a "~" within a longer name.
