Remove forbidden characters in Dimension Levels when dragging and dropping from DW

Creating dimensions is easy within TX: you can simply drag & drop from the DW Window.

However if the fields dropped from the DW table contain forbidden characters such as \ or () TimeXtender creates the dimension level exactly like that.

A not so clear error only gets thrown at deploy time, making you have to manually search for the forbidden character in all your added dimensions.


It would be great of TX sanitized the dimension and measure names already at creation time.
