Question Marks

Post by dsp » Sun May 20, 2007 10:39 pm

If a song title has a "?" in it, why do the resultant file names only show "_" instead.

I'm using a MacPro with 10.4.9.

BTW, I can update the file name in Finder to show a question mark.

I guess because of my Linux background. Max escapes numerous special characters in filenames, partly because the files could reside on shared filesystems where that isn't a legal character. Obviously HFS+ doesn't have this limitation!

Is there any way, or is it going to be considered in future releases, to be able to set the default "escape character"?
