Keep original file name

Travis I'm New Here Oct 25, 2017


I have a file name problem when attaching on Trello.
I put a .PNG file on the board with the name: My Wife Is Crazy
But then, when the members of my team downloaded my file, the name of the PNG file when downloaded to the computer was changed to: My_Wife_Is_Crazy
It does not matter if there are 1 2 3 files, but I (as well as my team) have a lot of files.
Is there a way to fix this?
Please give me advice.

Hi Travis,


In this case, the problem is the spaces in the file name, which the web in general doesn't have great support for. When uploading the files, Trello needs to eliminate those spaces in order to store the file on our servers.

When you upload the original file, if you avoid the use of spaces in the file name, you won't see it change when re-downloading it from Trello.
