13.1 Planahead - Unable to see the source in Project Window


I havecreated a source file but it is not added to the project (that is,it is not displayed in source window).

What is the reason and why does PlanAhead software not display the file?


This problem can happen if Double byte (Unicode) characters, such as Japanese and other Asian characters are use for a file name and path.

Double byte characters are not supported for paths or file names within PlanAhead software. However, PlanAhead tool is not doing a good job of indicating the source of the problem.

In PlanAhead 13.2 software and later, an error will be thrown when the user would want to add/create a file with the above criteria.
