I understand that the answer is “Kicad does not support them, so don’t use them”.
My question is about BOM: when I send such a “revised” part name to the fabrication house, they say that cannot find some components, and I have to retrieve the datasheet and manually send them the correct order codes.
Why Kicad cannot accept those special chars (even with some escaping!)? I mean, the goal of the symbol libraries is to store components, so I would think it should adapt itself to them, not viceversa
How do you handle this issue?
