I am usually copy/pasting the name of the projects my team works on into a folder's name, so that they match. This allows me to be organized and fast, and to find folders that match project names easily.
However, it doesn't always work, since some project names will have words and some won't.
For example the project that ends in "-lists" was named without an error message, but the second one gave me an error message:
Now, I need the names of the folders to be as close to project names. Which can contain dots. This way, I can copy the folder name to search the database and find the corresponding project.
But I cannot manually change every single
. into a
-, I feel like this would be a lot of trouble.
Should I add the word "folder" at the end to make sure macOS doesn't think my folders have file extensions?
When does a folder's name turn this folder into a file I won't be able to open anymore, and what are ways to name folders freely, without the system assuming they are extensions?
