4.1i Foundation ISE - Snapshot names containing spaces are truncated in Project Navigator and the OS.


Keywords: multiple, snapshot, rename, shortened

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use snapshot names that contain spaces, the names become truncated (to what is written before the space) in Project Navigator, and the directory name is truncated in my operating system.

For example:

A snapshot name "snap1" that is renamed to "snap 1" will become truncated to "snap" in Project Navigator; the directory name also becomes "snap".

If the snapshot names before the space are the same, the snapshots will all be named the same thing, but the directory names will not change.

For example, a name such as "snap2" that is renamed to "snap 2" will be truncated to "snap" in Project Navigator, but the directory name will remain as "snap2".


This happens because the snapshot names contain spaces. This can cause problems when deleting snapshots; if you delete any of the snapshots in this state, the "snap" directory will be deleted, rather than the associated directory.

You can work around this problem by running "Replace with Snapshot", or by closing and reopening the project.

This issue has been fixed in the 5.1i release.
