    I created a backup copy of my Sketchup file and wrote a Ruby script to rename all component and component instances. Now it exports successfully.

    In general, I wouldn't expect the average user to be able to open up the ruby console, read a stack trace and understand that their file name was not parsed correctly - then proceed to write a script to rename hundreds of components.

    Instead the PlayUp plugin should be updated to:

    - Use popup dialogue boxes to display user friendly error messages.
    - Automatically validate file names.
    - Parse and escape illegal characters such as quotes.

    In it's current state, without me writing my own plugin to do the above beforehand this plugin is unusable for my clients.

    I am experiencing this as well.

    My Sketchup file has literally hundreds of items with single and double quotes in their names. This is a convention the designers user for measurements. This tool is unable to process single and double quotes, so it just breaks before it converts to FBX.

    Unless someone has a script to mass rename items in Sketchup using REGEX I think I may need to abandon PlayUp Tools - as it is unusable.

    I am facing this issue as well. After opening the Ruby Console it appears it is because an entity / component has double quotes and single quotes in the title. Seems like someone doesn't validate their inputs and it crashes the plugin. Which is unfortunate, good coding practices should prevent this.

    Now I have to figure out how to write a script to remove quotes from all of my HUNDREDS of entities / components. Which, I don't know if I want to bother. I just might move on and try to find an alternative to PlayUp, considering the first thing I try to do with it is broken.
