    Invalid path names for distilling to PDF

    K.Daube Level 2

      This morning I discovered the following:

      Acrobat 11 does not allow to have directory names containing a comma. This was not a problem with Acrobat 9.5.xx

      Situation: Using FM- to save as PDF works well except for files in a praticular directory: D:\Private\Haus+hof\Entsorg,ERZ\Entsorgung_2015.fm creates an empty TPS which creates the Distiller Message [ Warning: Empty job. No PDF file produced.].


      I was fiddling around, e.g. save as MIF, then open the MIF and Save as PDF from the MIF (no effect); multiple times restarted FM and even W7-x64 (no effect); saving the PDF to another directory (worked). Then suddenly had the idea with the directory name. After changing the directory name to Entsorgung+ERZ (no comma, but +) everything is fine again...


      IMHO this is a bug, as on windows a comma is allowed in directory names.


      Does anybody know which other characters Acrobat does not allow in path-names?
