Naming in Vertex

We recommend to use only specific characters in names.

  • letters: a-z, A-Z
  • numbers from 0-9
  • special character: underscore (_).

For example, do not use space in the name. Avoid also special characters +, - , (comma), . (period), ?, /, \

If you wish to use Scandinavian characters ä, Ä, ö or Ö, they work when the user interface is in Finnish. These characters reserve more space in the database.

Spelling Check:

The software indicates a prohibited character instantly after typing it. The color of the field turns red and a tip message appears in the view.

The OK or Apply button is enabled after you have removed the prohibited characters.
