Limiting the length of a file name in Dapper

Solution

There are two hidden settings to allow you to limit the total length of a file name that will be saved to your DAP.

longestFileName

longestComponent

 

You can set these by opening a terminal (Applications->Utilities->Terminal) and then typing:

Shut down Dapper

defaults write com.map-pin.Dapper longestFileName -int 254

defaults write com.map-pin.Dapper longestComponent -int 100

Launch Dapper again
