Naming projects for export

Hi folks
Just curious…why does Audacity not allow certain symbols when creating a title for a project. Symbols like * { ( & : are not permitted in project titles when exporting.

As always thanks in advance for your input.

And that’s if you’re sticking in the Windows universe.

If you have to transfer files universally between multiple different computer types and ages, the list gets smaller: Upper, Lower, Numbers, -Dash- and Underscore.

The slash marks in particular can cause very serious problems.
