ES File Explorer

Post by RobW » Tue Dec 13, 2016 5:23 pm

I have posted a topic about problems with links in a document that have a total path name that is longer than 128 characters:

'the problem seems to be in the total lenght of the filename including path of the document the link points to.
The maximum lenght that works is 128. If the path is longer, only a blank document is presented when TextMaker starts.'


To my surprise (and maybe I have overlooked it in the past) the same problem occurs when I want to directly open a document or sheet with a path name that is longer than 128 characters in ES File Explorer. Using the file manager directly in SoftMaker there is not a problem. Likewise in e.g. File Commander.

It would be logical to first look for the error in ES File Explorer, but there is something strange going on with the maximum lenght of a file path withing SoftMaker Office HD. For that reason I decided to post this topic: is it a problem anyone else has encountered so far?

Sending a file is not very useful, because it depends on where you store a file, i.e. how long the total lenght of the filename including path of the document is.

Please see the conversation under topic 'Links':

'I could send you the file, but I have tested some more and the problem seems to be in the total lenght of the filename including path of the document the link points to.

The maximum lenght that works is 128 (if I have counted correctly: /storage/emulated/0/doc1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111/22222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222/3/123.docx)

If the path is longer, only a blank document is presented when TextMaker starts.'
