Names of Digital Downloads - please add them to the PDFs!

Customer Service

I have one big wish: Would it be possible in the future to add the actual name of the product to the PDFs you provide as digital downloads?

As an example, I've bought the recent Humble Bundle that included the Abomination Vault Adventure Path. The single-file downloads are provided as ZIP files with names like:


So far, so good. However, when I unpack this, I get the following file names:

PZO90164 Interactive Maps.pdf

These are presumably the product codes, and I do not object to having the product codes as part of the file names. However, it would really help me if these file names also included the actual names of the product.

When I buy PDF products, I rename them into something I can recognize, such as:

Abomination Vaults 2 - Hands of the Devil.pdf
Abomination Vaults 2 - Hands of the Devil Interactive Maps.pdf

But, since these are not part of the file name, I have to manually type them. And what's worse, I can't unpack all my purchases into the same directory - I need to unzip each of the purchases into separate directory so that I know from the directory path which PDF represents which module!

This is a major hassle each and every time I buy PDFs from Paizo, and I'd appreciate it if the actual module names were included in the PDF file names at some point in the future.

I would simply rename the files while still compressed, and then export them to the appropriate folder on my drive. For example, Agents of Edgewatch 2 got renamed in the zip, then exported to Pathfinder>Pathfinder2e>Adventure Paths>Agents of Edgewatch.

If it helps, I was using the basic Windows utility to handle the compressed files. That way I could look at the name of the zip file and use that to rename the product coded files.

That's what I do. Rename the zip file when saving it to a folder, then cut-n-paste that to the PDF file. 'Course, I also rename APs to something like "SFAP01-DS 1 of 6-Incident at Absalom Station." Library's grown rather sprawling over the years so the extra info helps keep it all in order.
