pdfs renaming - authors’ format

Hi, there!
It is small question about pdfs renaming (both by Zotero and Zotfile). I’d like to have authors’ format like this - author1 & author2. Is there any opportunity to do this? Аs far as I can see I could have either author1 and author2 or author1_author2.
  • Ampersands aren't valid filename characters under Windows, so even if you are using an operating system that does allow for their use, I would advise against it.
  • I see... but so far I have been using ampersands in filenames a lot under Win7 without any problems
  • Oops, you're right. Sorry for the misinformation.
  • ...are there any suggestions?

    I think you can edit the value of "extensions.zotero.attachmentRenameFormatString" in about:config (Advanced Prefs in Zotero standalone).

    Edit: sorry, that does not affect the delimiter between authors name.
  • @andreyshevchuk: I've submitted a patch to ZotFile in order to add the required option in Zotfile. I don't know if it will be added to the next ZotFile release but you can find the discussion here.

    In the meantime, I put this version here.
    It should be safe but keep in mind the usual disclaimers... backup your data before using it.
