Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install Bullzip PDF printer (free from http://www.bullzip.com/) 2. Go to http://www.nytimes.com 3. Click on any news article 4. Click on "Print" within the article to reformat it for printing 5. Notice the page Title in the top left Blue bar, and count the characters. 5. Print the article to PDF using the Bullzip PDF printer. 6. Notice the file_name.pdf. 7. The file_name will be much shorter than the page Title, which is the problem. Actual Results: Same as above. Expected Results: Would like the entire page Title to be used to create the file_name.pdf. Same as Expected Results.
This also happens with the Adobe PDF printer and FreePDF XP.
This is a very annoying issue. Windows file system allows 255 characters on a file name, so what´s the problem? Happens with every other pdf printers and does not happen with any other browser.
