Outlook Addin: Limited length of file name

Post by Peter2 » Fri Nov 01, 2019 8:08 am

Outlook Addin uses the "Subjecct" of email to create the filename of PDF. That's fine, but it truncates the string after approx. 40 characters. That's not fine.

Please remove the limitation or make it configurable to higher values.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for the report.

I have just tested this issue in our Release Candidate version and it seems that there is no limit anymore but it cuts off the name of the file after an empty space.

The subject was:
Fvsdgbdgsdvsdfdsfvsdsgdsvsdfgdssvdsfdsffsdvbsdsdsgdsvgdsdvsdfsdfhhheghe sdggsdggewgsdgvds

the converted result received a name Fvsdgbdgsdvsdfdsfvsdsgdsvsdfgdssvdsfdsffsdvbsdsdsgdsvgdsdvsdfsdfhhheghe.pdf

EDIT: Actually the limit is still here. It appears when there is an empty space before the 40th character.

I will report that issue to our developers for further investigation.



Regards.
