Hi Community,

Here's a simple script to change extension links from uppercase to lower and relink.

Everything seems right but I'm in trouble with accented letters in link name.

I know it's a path problem and i've tryied with decodeURI() but no way.

Thanks in advance

Mario

 

var myLinks = app.activeDocument.links;

for (i = 0; i < myLinks.length; i++) {
 
var nomeLink = myLinks[i].name;
var extPosizione = nomeLink.lastIndexOf(".");
var extLink = nomeLink.slice(extPosizione);
var nomeNoExt = nomeLink.slice(0, extPosizione);

if (extLink == extLink.toUpperCase()) {
var nomeOrExt = nomeNoExt + "x" + extLink.toLowerCase();

File(myLinks[i].filePath).rename(nomeOrExt);
var nuovoLink = new File(myLinks[i].filePath.replace(nomeLink, nomeOrExt));
myLinks[i].relink(nuovoLink);
myLinks[i].update();
} else {}
}

If you work on a Mac, the problem may be that the Mac OS decomposes accented characters (into the base character and the accent) in file and folder names. I don't use a Mac and I've no idea how to work around it. Maybe a Mac user has an idea.

File(myLinks[i].filePath).rename(nomeOrExt)
var nuovoLink = decodeURI(File(myLinks[i].filePath));
var newLink = nuovoLink.substring(0, nuovoLink.lastIndexOf('/'));
myLinks[i].relink(File(newLink + "/" + nomeOrExt));
myLinks[i].update();
} else { }
