Natively in Acrobat Pro DC on Mac OSX you can extract pages with a forward slash '/' in the file naming, when I try via java script I get the below error message. I've tried creating a folder level script with a trusted function with the same result. my question is it possible to extract pages is with a forward slash '/' in the file naming with a script rather than replacing the forward slash '/' with some other character?
The script works fine when I replace the forward slash '/'.
I can't find any Apple documentation to this effect, but I think that Finder swaps ":" with "/". So a file you see in Finder called A/B is actually called A:B. Meanwhile, a file called Re:Animator in the Mac shows up in Finder as Re/Animator. Apparently, AppleScript may interpret them either way.
So to me the take home message is: forbid both : and / in your filenames if you want to keep your hair!
