Item8079: Drawing name with spaces not editable.

Creating a drawing with a name that has spaces in it e.g.

%DRAWING{"My Drawing"}%

allows the initial drawing to be edited and saved, but the resulting gif is not displayed, and if an attempt is made to edit the drawing a second time, the applet cannot open the files.

This is caused by the name having a space in it.

The filenames are sanitised when saved "My_Drawing.gif", (and can be displayed with attachurl).

But the DRAWING macro is still trying to use "My Drawing.gif" etc. for editing and display.

Changing %DRAWING{"My Drawing"}% to %DRAWING{"My_Drawing"}% results in correct display and editability.

I think there is some path where the sanitised version of the name is not being used.

Hello Kenneth - can you shed any light on this one? Thanks.

It was a simple coding error in the plugin.

I have uploaded a new version.

The plugin uses the standard rules for attachment filenames which includes converting spaces to _.

Problem was that the plugin had a coding error so the converted filename was not used internally in the plugin.
