Yesterday a really strange thing happened to me. I exported 3 files via PhotoShop from the same .psd file: first CA.jpg, second HK.jpg than the third BD.jpg to a website's src project folder (loaded into Visual Code).

When I refreshed the browser (Chrome) to see the 3 images on the page I was currently working, the third image was missing from `/src’.

Went into /src to see what's up to realise that "BD.jpg" got somehow renamed to "Good morning -darling ...!...-).jpg" (in my native language).

How could this happen. Could this be the work of an intruder? I use my mac for dev. purposes only, haven't downloaded any other than the necessary apps for my web/coding projects.

Any ideas?

  • Have a look under "System Preferences" -> "Keyboard" -> "Text" and look if there is BD as a shorthand for a longer text. Might be this AND an error on Apple side I guess. – muuvmuuv Apr 10 at 9:13
  • Anyway, this is crazy that osx uses these shorthands when writing to the filesystem. Could you add your comment as an answer? – Edmond Tamas Apr 10 at 9:17
  • Might be Photoshop that does this or call a handler in the background which unexpectedly calls this shorthand function, idk. But please report this to Apple or Adobe as well to inform them about this. – muuvmuuv Apr 10 at 9:23
  • Good idea! I will report this to Apple. – Edmond Tamas Apr 10 at 9:25

    @muuvmuuv Text substitution is a standard functionality of all text entry fields, and sometimes quite useful even for file names etc. – nohillside Apr 10 at 9:51
