Tab in a note causing error

Honored Contributor

User edoted a note on a drawing (NX9), and the edit included 'tabs'.  When he tried to exit the edit, he got an error that read something like "the are required selections in the command that must be satisfied".  Take out the tabs, and replace with spaces, and it workes fine.

 

I never use tabs in notes, I suspect this was an issue in the past, could go back to the unix days?  anyway, are tabs not allowed in drawing notes?

No, they aren't (or at least weren't - not sure about NX9/10)

You might want to look up the ENV variable:

UGII_DRAFT_REMOVE_UNSUPPORTED_CONTROL_CHARACTERS=TRUE

I'll say tab is still not supported in NX9. 

 

ENV set, since we have a lot of (former) Solidworks users that will try.

 

Thanks Ken.
