I'm not even sure if I should report this as a bug, or create a discussion. I'm going with bug, because this is clearly not supposed to happen in my operating system and I wanna smack the dev that thought this was a good idea
earlier today, I needed to access my appdata to clear some caches for a clean reinstall of a different program and...
I found a number of Adobe folders, all for After Effects, with characters that took up less than a pixel, or partial pixels.
After copying and pasting, I figures out these symbols automatically existed before the cursor, making them impossible to remove if they're the first character in a string. It's absolutely stunning!
It's also absolutely reckless and dangerous activity, for a trusted program to engage in.
The characters are ֑ ֒ ֓ ֔ ֕ ֖ ֠ and ֣ , though they actually change depending on the exitence of spaces, have some glitches when copied, or being the first character in a string. notice how this is multiple in one character, using some copy tricks to get it to register some dual accents: ֒ ֓
but if I was to say, ֔... yes, those two sub-pixel things are the same first character on the list above.
Simply put, they're visually volatile and can potentially break a number of systems, their appearrance changes based on their surroundings, and they cannot be manually typed outside of hebrew, and absolutely SHOULD NOT be used for a hack to enable multiples of the same folder name. Adobe. please teach your devs to just use numbers or nested folders like the rest of us, not obscure hebrew accents to get around alphabetical organization in hidden system files.
