Weldment cutlist " (inch) symbol causing problems in description

I'm sure we aren't the only ones who've run into this issue.

We use the inch symbol in our weldment descriptions.

After upgrading to 2015, and using the new feature "Rename cut list folders with Description property value", the length does not read correctly in the cut list on the drawing.

Seems the quotes cause the software to only use a portion of the description.


I've submitted this to my VAR who has forwarded it to Solidworks.

I feel this is a major issue. We can't change the descriptions in all of our weldment profiles.

It would be a huge job for one, and also our purchasing guy would not like seeing the cut lists reading differently than he's used to.


Also, no matter what we do, the box keeps defaulting to checked?
