Disable replacement of slash

Hello,
Max replaces a / to _ (example AC/DC becomes AC_DC). Can I disable this somehow?

Thanks,

Florian

In filenames, you mean?

It's not really a desirable character to be used, since Unix (and Unix-like OSes, like Linux) use it as a path-separator. And it's not licit on Windows either. It shouldn't really be on OS X either, since OS X is supposedly POSIX-compliant, but there are strange things going on under the surface in OS X, owing to the old Mac stuff that was larded into it and that it runs on the Mac filesystem. (The path separator on the Mac OS was a colon.) Really it's best to avoid any character that might cause you problems at some point:

As to your question, I don't know. I don't think you can change which characters Max "saves you from" -- there's nothing in its Preferences that I can see where the substitutions are specified.
