I copy-paste Gedit-hash (
#) in a part of filepath into internet browser to read PDF file unsuccessfully: no file found with Gedit-hash symbol.
Inputing there directly the hash symbol from the keyboard is consireded correct.
Copy-pasting the gedit-hash to Vim shows Ascii 035 correctly, also tested on the ASCII tool here.
Example filepath misinterpreted in Internet browser where
# expands to
- Copy the filepath to Gedit
- Copy the filepath from Gedit
- Paste the filepath to any internet browser
#symbol is expanded to
Methods inserting filepath which are correctly interpreted
- type hash directly to the internet browser field
