I'm working at a new job, on a machine running PS 5.1, running OS 10.8.5 with me set up as a new user on this Mac.
I'm duplicate the file, save as on the documents I'm working on, and these images contain a "." within the name. So, every time I "save as" the file drops the characters after the "." and adds the file extension.
We changed the Finder preferences to show all filename extensions, but that only seemed to work briefly.
Anyone else have to deal with this, and know a work-around?
Whoever set up using "." in a filename should not have done that. The "." is used by Windows to show the file extension type, so many script and functions will omit whatever is after the ".". I'm not familar with the Mac OS so get around this, but I would strongly suggest your company change it's practices.
Thanks, csuebele, I know that as well and agree with you. However, asking my new boss to change the company practice is not an option available to me.
If anyone else has a suggestion, I would love to hear it.
