Hi friends,

the subject says it all :-)

User entered a filename with a SLASH -> ddd/uuu.whatever
How should this be handled on mobile iOS/Android?

Escape with a BACKSLASH? -> ddd\/uuu.whatever
Replace with what?

On the Mac this is obviously replaced with a colon -> ddd:uuu.whatever
At least this is the way it appears in -> the files("folder with that file")

Any hints appreciated, thank you!
