I’ve import hundred of documents from the web. I love EF’s ‘F1’ fast import. When I subsequently renamed them in EF (cause web files typically have useless names like a129384.pdf), I was expecting the obvious: that the file names were being changed too (not just in the EF interface).
I was appalled to see that all my effort was wasted. I spent a bunch of time in the finder hand renaming files - than things when from bad went to worse. Now EF has tons of broken links, cause of corse it references by file name.
- Why doesn’t Eaglefiler do the obvious and change the name along with the database reference? This is a rather fundamental requirement.
- How do I change the file names without breaking links?
- How do I fix the broken links?
