Open parens in file name breaks md-link

Testing version: Version 1.0 (2510)

What were you doing: Dragging a pdf into pandas with a ( in the name

What feature did you use: PDF embedding

What happened: As the name contains an opening ( it broke the MD-link.

What did you expect to happen: As in bear, the name of the file to sanitised and and the ( to be removed.

This happened because, I am using Latexit for equations and dragging an equation out of the editor, the default name may contain ( if it was in the equation. It is a limit case, but since Bear deals with it gracefully, this would be feature parity :slight_smile:

Hi there,

Thank you for letting us know, we’ll investigate this and see what we can do :slight_smile:

Hi there @sitacuisses

Just a follow-up on this, would you be able to provide the exact link that this was occurring with to assist with investigating? :slight_smile:

Sure, here I use a jpg, but the effect is the same.


I said in the original message, that in Bear the ( is replaced. This is not the case, in Bear it doesn’t cause any issues since the images syntax is different and hence a stray ( doesn’t cause trouble.


Again, this is low priority, but just in case.

Thank you for the additional information, I have passed it onto the development team for investigation :slight_smile:
