We were alerted that the opening of an .umberto file may fail (an error message appears) when the path to the file contains the special character "&" (ampersand).
Example: "C:\Users\jsmith\Documents\A&B_Company\carbonfootprint_file.umberto"
This is due to the fact that this character is interpreted as a control character in an XML file.

We have identified the reason for this problem and will be fixing it in the next release.

In the meantime, should you encounter this problem, please copy the file to a location which as no ampersand in the file path. The file should then open normally.
