Export on macOS - Error when unpacking .zip archive

Trying to unpack the .zip archive, generated by Anytype export, using default macOS Archive Utility gives an

Error 63 - File name too long.

Renaming the zip archive or changing its path doesn’t change the behaviour.

Using The Unarchiver gives a

Could not extract "files/<long_string_here>.png?Expires=<another_eternal_string_here_>

but the contents are extracted from the archive (cannot point out if something is missing though).

The markdown files Anytype exports have really long (encrypted) names. It’s worse with exported files, which have those long encrypted characters + the original file name. For example, if you append a .pdf document called example_pdf_document.pdf, when exported the file would be renamed to something like baytueidwdlhklg4udngkq4oygdupkk2evi8834dhqyzjye42r5plb7uk5y_example_pdf_document.pdf which is really long and perhaps that poses a problem to macOS.

Thanks, @danijelcamdzic @gis! We will add this bug report in development and try to fix it ASAP

@gis can you try it one more time? We have fixed that in the latest release

@Vova I confirm that the export is now working perfectly. :+1:
