Configure Library
SoftPlan Version:
2018 Plus

I am trying to rename electrical symbols. I have been creating and rename opening symbols for the past 3 days. I just started trying to create a new folder with electrical symbols. This error message keeps coming up. This didn't occur when I renamed/copied opening symbols. 


On the C drive- Softplan- Electrical ...I created a new folder with our company name. Copied the electrical symbols into the new folder. Then went into SoftPlan program to start manipulating the symbols. I attached the error that keeps coming up. 


This problem didn't occur with window openings. 


Thanks in advance for the help!

Figured out the problem!

When renaming symbols, certain keyboard characters can't be used.../?"* can't be used in the label

Illegal characters

Yes, that is a restriction imposed by Windows, not SoftPlan. Some characters are not allowed in file or folder names.
