SimpleIndex creates output files with upper case file extensions but we use an UNIX-based fileserver which requires lower case file extensions. How can i change the output file extension from upper case to lower case (e.g. from .PDF to .pdf)?

In SimpleIndex 6, file extensions were changed to default to lower case so this should no longer be an issue. If you want to default back to upper case file extensions, you must edit the registry.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SimpleIndex\Misc

Create a String value called “UpperCaseFileExtension” and set to 1 for upper case or 0 for lower case.

This registry setting will also work to change the default behavior of version 5.
