Uploading pdf files using display as system name

I'm beginning to suspect this can't be done. I've set up and asset factory for users to upload PDF files to a specific location. To standardize and restrict the system names I had hoped to use either the display or title as system name plugins. Is there a way to append the .pdf suffix using this plugin?

    Currently, this would not be possible. You could perhaps add the Friendly Page Name plugin which would allow you to add a regular expression to ensure the extension exists, otherwise the user would receive an error.

    There is also the more complicated route, which would be to write a custom Asset Factory plugin.

    Alternatively, perhaps user training could help standardize file names?

    There are a few related suggestions on the Idea Exchange:

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
