Why does SimScale have weird restrictions on the characters in file and other names


Why does SimScale disallow the uploading of files who’s names contain (so far discovered) [] () _?

Why are names used internally to SimScale – for projects, BCs and the like – restricted as to the character they use issuing an error message that reads (something like) “Invalid formula”?

Why are project descriptions prevented from using any of []{}?!*; again giving an error that suggests the system is attempting top parse a formula within them?


Hi @mhere!

I have forwarded your question and one of my colleagues will get back to you soon with detailed information.
