Limitation: Changing the case of a file/directory name on macOS
Changing the case of a file/directory name on macOS
By default, macOS uses a case-insensitive file system. This can lead to issues for DSim Cloud users in the case where only the case of the characters in a file or directory name change in a workspace. For example, changing test.sv to TeSt.sv.
This may lead to files and directories not being correctly synchronized to the remote workspace, which can lead to a variety of issues.
As a general rule, we suggest avoiding changing the case of file or directory names as it can also cause issues with other tools (e.g., git).
Here is an example of a safe way to change file1.txt to File1.txt:
- Make sure your workspace is Active.
- Change the name of file1.txt to temp.txt.
- temp.txt is now available on the remote workspace.
- Change the name of temp.txt to File1.txt.
- File1.txt is now available on the remote workspace.
