The graph editor is quite nice and very useful. However, I have run into a problem. I was making an hbar graph, made many modifications, and then modified blabel to add a % sign (what many of us had asked for on the list). The editor accepted the % sign. I saved the graph, but when I tried to use it I received this message:

plotregion1.barlabels[8].text invalid name
error (198) reading file
Error in file, skipping lines:
.plotregion1.barlabels[8].text.Arrpush 3.8%
<EndItem>
graph1.gversion invalid name

I am now unable to -use- the graph and all of my time and work is lost. I know better now, but I suggest that the editor not allow entries that will crash the graph.
