Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

PDF file names

When logged in as Editor, if I go to the Edit Galley page of a PDF, I see something like this:

File name 512-536-2-PB.pdf
Original file name OSBR_february08.pdf

And when readers download the PDF, the filename is the cryptic one used by the database. Is there any way to rename the PDF that gets downloaded to something more useful?
