And characters other than alphanumeric.

Do you mean Name like part number, or Name like Description?

I mean the "instance name" (the name that shows up in the Structure Browser).

With additional characters (e.g. blanks, Special characters) you are driving on a dead-end road,

because it will make it harder to move to CREO, which has very strict rules for names of parts/asssemblies.

Newbie

Very strict rules are often the source of trouble especially in theis context. Think of countries like germany and others with some umlauts.

Maybe PTC should rethink if the wish for the expanded character set or the strict rules are a dead-end road.

release 20 adds (allows) blanks *and* the + (plus) sign in the part name.
