Shortened Word doc filenames in Mac OS X

  Hamburglar 17:12 09 Nov 2007

Hi. This might be a no-brainer. Is there any way when using Microsoft Word X for Mac (Service Release 1) to save files under names with more than 31 characters? There doesn't seem to be a problem on a PC or a different Mac - do I simply need to use a different version of Word?

A similar thing seems to happen when files are zipped (WinZip) and then emailed - they come out with shorter names. Any way round this?
