Screenshots / Videos

I used my VisualTestingInKatalonStudio projet . I executed a Test Suite Collection Test Suite/CURA/Execute_chronos`. I ran just successful. The test produced a file

<VisualTestingInKatalonStduio>/Materials\CURA.chronos_capture\CURA_DevelopmentEnv\20200630_113359\CURA.visitSite\appointment.php%23summary.png

For some reason, I wanted to change the name of the screenshot file through the Katalon Studio GUI. I opened the Rename file dialog. It just opened.

Then I typed a char in the text field in the dialog, then the dialog showed an errror message:

KS_Rename_file_dialog

The message clearly tells that Katalon Studio does not like % character in the file name.

Why Katalon Studio is such specific about the type of characters allowed in the file name? I do not think this specification is appropriate. As we know, Windows OS allows any characters in a file name except the following just a few characters:

I think that Katalon Studio should be less restrictive about the type of characters used in a file name. KS should allow any characters allowed by underlying OS.
