    BUG: Saving Screenshots

    I upgraded to NT 8.....14 today

    even though previously I save several times a day charts I never had this problem before

    In Windows there are some characters you can't use in a filename

    I tried to save a chart just now - using the default filename provided

    filename in dialog:

    @GER30 (10 Tick) 2018_05_25 (4:35:55 PM)

    windows dialog pops up "invalid filename"

    the problem is that a : is a reserved character for obvious reasons. You can't use that in a filename

    also while you are at it - it is my opinion that times would be better in 24 hour format for easy sorting by filename

    as you can imagine some people will save multiple screenshots while something is happening then - depending on how the image viewer displays files, there's a chance it might browse by filename rather than date created. So it is better to be sortable by filename.

      this is a definite bug, try it yourself..

      try to rename any file in windows and put multiple ':' in the filename, you will see windows doesn't like it

        My apologies. This is a bug which slipped through the cracks. We will provide a updated R14 version next week which will go with a "HH MM" time formatting.

        I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
