Inserting special characters in text field makes graphml file unreadable for yEd

0 votes
I was copying text (including e.g. bullet points) from a pdf file into the data->Description field of a node. Although these special characters looked funny, yEd had no problems with this. After saving and quiting yEd I tried to re-open the file, but then an error occured with an obscure java/xml/sax(?) explanation.

Since I suspected the copied text from the pdf file, I edited the graphml file to remove the special characters. Then I could reopen the file in yEd.

It is an error that I can insert characters in a text field in yEd that makes the graphml file unreadable for yEd.

Thanks for reporting this error. We can reproduce the problem and will fix it in the next release (after yEd 3.9.1).

Unfortunately, we have no work-around for this except correcting the text content manually, of course.
