Re: alfresco preview not showing in any format without rename the file in first time

There are potential issues with preview rendering on filesystems with a limited path length, foremost Windows. When the installation path of Alfresco is already quite long it can happen that the file name for temporary files in the transformation process will also be quite long and potentially to long for proper handling for command line tools.
