For current funcationality, creo file name only support English and numbers. For NX and Solidworks, both support full lanuguages, for example japanese, Chinese, korean.
PTC should provide Creo file name support other language characters to fill customers requirement
Just got one great idea from one PTC technical support one guy, starting at Creo 1.0, set hidden config.pro option "creo_less_restrictive_names " to "yes", creo file name supports other language characters, I have tested Simplified Chinese character works well. But don't in which release this option will be opened for us.
That's something I've been waiting since I started working with Pro/E (Ok, it's not that long, about 4.5 years now) and would gladly welcome this feature.
I would even expand it further and suggested that maybe it's time to remove this limit of 31 characters in filename? One of my customers came up with naming convention that puts all the necessary information about the part (like product it's located in, it's properties and so on) into the filename and they say that this limit sometimes is driving them crazy.
And one more thing: are you sure about this option or it's name? I just tried out of couriosity this setting and it's not being recognized both in Creo 1.0 and 2.0.
This hidden config.pro option "creo_less_restrictive_names " doesn't work for me too. Confirmation information from technical support team. Until now this option only works for PTC internal license only.
