After installing tm11.1 I am getting a notification when I go to add a document that "invalid characters have been removed". This is new to this version. I am using autoname which includes the matter ref and the matter refs were imported from amicus where a / character was used. I have tried a "_" character but still get the message. This was mentioned as a new feature in the TM 11.1 release notes but it is creating an extra click for us each time we create a document. I know the obvious solution is not to use these characters.. but is there a switch to turn off or a list of "invalid" characters?
Those characters are hard coded into the new update, unfortunately there is not a way to turn them off. The developers are trying to get a more Microsoft complaint software and this was one step they had to take. You can use the mass change feature to remove the invalid character fields.
I am curious to know if what you are experiencing is similar issue to the one I describe in "http://www.lexisnexis.com/community/pmforums/forums/p/25435/39608.aspx#39608" ?
We are now at TM 10.0 SP3 Hotfix 1011.
I have a Document Form where the file name is "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237310" because I found it MUCH more convenient to have this reference in the document powerview rather than the web powerview. I believe I created this record back in version 8.
Unfortunately under version 10 I cannot create such a Document Form I get the error message window titles "Invalid Characters Were Replaced" and the message is:
"The file name contained invalid characters. These characters have been automatically replaced with underscores (_)."
This means I can no longer create such document records, which for me were VERY useful.
