When creating, editing, or adding a layout, article, image, Dossier, or any other type of file or object in Studio for InDesign and InCopy, be aware of the following restrictions:
- The name cannot be longer than 63 characters
- Some characters are not allowed
Name length restriction
The files that are worked on in Studio for InDesign and InCopy are stored in Studio Server. In this system, an object cannot have a name that is longer than 63 characters.
When a name is entered that is longer than 63 characters, Studio for InDesign and InCopy automatically removes all characters after position 63.
When a file is created or edited in Studio for InDesign and InCopy, its name may not contain any of the following characters:
Note: This list is not complete; other less often used characters that are also invalid are not shown here.
|'||Single quote - straight|
|`||Single quote - back|
|‘||Single quote open - curly|
|’||Single quote close - curly|
|"||Double quote - straight|
|“||Double quote open - curly|
|”||Double quote close - curly|
|#||Pound / number / hash|
||||Pipe / bar|
When typing any of these characters in Studio, the character is automatically removed.
Integration with Assets
Another way of adding files to Studio Server is by adding them from Assets.
However, fewer characters are considered to be invalid in Assets than in Studio Server. When a file is added from Assets to Studio Server therefore, the name of the file in Assets Server is adjusted by removing those characters that are invalid in Studio Server.
