Why SolidWorks can't I have a period in my favorite name AND then save it out? Is it trying to tell me this in the pop-up? Crazy!
SolidWorks 2015 SP4
Just another observation, very sneaky SolidWorks... but this could be better!
It doesn't remember the check box for a custom size (the first time) - check it, save a favorite, then uncheck it, select your favorite (when you saved it checked) and it remains unchecked. Click OK, it will be OK though, and after you go back in the feature it will be checked. I guess... but a little strange if you ask me, could lead to thinking it is drop-down size when really it is a custom size. Not good I would say.
Thanks for bringing this up. It's a known issue and you can add your support for getting it resolved by voting for the associated SPR in our knowledge base. I personally don't know why the limitation is there but maybe there is a database reason.
SPR 281716 - Hole Wizard Favorites - no Special Characters are allowed in the name of the favorite while saving the favorite.
