Description

Hello folks,

I found out a strange behaviour at least for .pdf files:

I use a Tracker with a field of type "files" to provide a "file-pool" respectively a download area for an npo's member are - Tiki 18.0 alpha. On another site with Tiki 17 the error does not appear.
File gallery is set to store in directory on both sites.

When a user tries to upload a file of any size that was either created on a Mac or that was sent from a Mac by email (so has been stored/saved on a Mac), it is not possible to upload to Tiki via the files field.

Error: Upload impossible. There are restrictions.
(translated)

The same file can be uploaded via the file gallery - but then it does not appear in the tracker.

"4:57:20 PM - jonnyb: althugh the error looks like one i exposed recently in 18.x - before when it errored it just removed the tracker item edit modal so you lost all your changes an so i fixed that, but i should not have introduced any new errors - maybe the file is too big, or doesn 't meet the mime type or somthing? check the extension is .pdf etc, maybe it's something like that?"


When I recreate the file (I use Ubuntu 14.04), by importing to a software and save as new file or I split and remerge it with pdfSAM, the newly recreated file can be uploaded via the tracker field files.

It is not enough to simply save a copy from the .pdf viewer, but it must be really created new. pdfSAM is a workaround for multipage files, but not sufficient for a growing amount of files.

As I am stubborn in the npos where I am engaged, that we need OS independend solutions, not excluding for ex Linux users, I cannot expect from Mac users to not being able to use the Tracker field of type files and even not be able to privide files to the teams.

I am wondering why this occurs, cause afaik the main developer of this field type is a Mac user himself -Jonny, right assumtion ;-) ?

Please help or comment.

If no quick fix possible, I'll post a bugreport including this description later on today.

Thx for help and considerations.

Solution
