I finally got back to testing this.
What I’m doing is to select all (Command-A) while I’m in the Records file, with the cursor clicked on any one file. All files get selected. I then go up to the scripts pull-down menu and run the “replace in filenames” script. For example, I search for / , ; , : , ", etc. (one at a time) and replace with a period.
I’m finding that it works for ; and : but not " or /.
Here are some file names that remain unfixed:
The Art Institute of Chicago/ Calendar/ Events.pdf
PLoS ONE/ Can Playing the Computer Game “Tetris” Reduce the Build-Up of Flashbacks for Trauma? A Proposal from Cognitive Science
Press Kit/ The Art of Ancient Greek Theater.pdf
SAMSUNG Samsung SyncMaster P2570 24.6-inch Widescreen Color LCD Monitor / Parts & Upgrades . Dell
It may be catching some slashes but not all; I can’t tell.
