File names

Often file names are very long.

It would be useful and mitigate potential corruption of EndNote libraries if files for which meta-data is available could be renamed according to a schema, e.g. Year_Surname_Title.pdf, so that Year might be replaced by year of publication e.g. 2002, Surname by the surname of the first Author e.g. Van-Hout and Title by a shortened version of the title containing only alphanumeric characters e.g. A paper on typographic markings.

We are working on a similar feature for the next version of EndNote.

but why is it still numbers in the folder names. that’s not logical is it. now the pdf name is great, and can be selected, but you have no idea to what reference the folder corresponds.

used  to be much better in X5.
