Description Lewis Rosenthal 2015-02-28 15:41:34 UTC
Attempting to export as PDF with an otherwise-legal "#" in the filename fails consistently on OS/2 but works on other platforms. It apparently does not mater whether the "#" is preceded or succeeded by a space. Failure occurs on multiple filesystems (JFS, HPFS, NetWare IFS, Samba share). I just noticed this same failure under OOo 3.2.0, so apparently, this has been with us for a while (I don't normally use these characters in filenames, but was quickly exporting a document sent to me). No special output formatting has been selected (i.e., defaults set).
