Option to limit max path length to 256 characters for compatibility

Some manga unfortunately have extremely long titles, which if you are using the manga title as the folder name and manga title + chapter title + group name as file name, it can cause the max path to surpass the default 256 character limit.

Windows Explorer itself handles long paths just fine, but some programs don't support extended paths, so it would useful to have an optional workaround.

If you implement this, I would suggest leaving the folder name untouched, and only reduce the length of the file name. If max path is >256 I'd first trim the manga title, then group name, and finally chapter title until limit is met.
