FS#2235 - Invalid symbol table name


I have got a dwg file from architect, which I can open, but I get “Invalid symbol table name” when I try to save it. I do not know which software was used to create it.
I have tried to change all spaces and national characteds in block and layers names as advised elswhere, but that didn’t help.

This has likely been fixed in QCAD 3.26.4, please re-open otherwise.

The cuprits seem to be two blocks with the names

Hišna delavnica_05_4


Hodnik_ stopnišče_01_6

Note that "š" type character "š" which is invisible in QCAD and might be shown as a square in your browser or as a faint "š". You can either remove that or replace it by a normal "š" or "s".

Indeed, after renaming those two I can save my changes!
I missed them because they were "invisible" in block editor.
