Issue: file extensions on networks

Issue: file extensions on networks
Despite the advent of LFN, some networks still truncate file names to conform with the 8.3 naming convention. This network-imposed change in a file name could break a link to an imported file in a FreeHand 10 document. For example, if a FreeHand document has a linked file with the name mydogspot.tif, the file name will be changed to mydogs~1.tif when the file is transferred over a network. This file-name change will break the link to the file. If the file is embedded (rather than linked), the file name will not change.
