    I just realized that my BigBox does not print gcode files with german special characters in its filename! You select the file, but nothing happens. It took some time until I had the idea to rename the file...

    ... seems you grew up after the DOS age :)

    More restrictions: The file name must have max. 8 characters, no spaces, at least in the standard Marlin environment.

    Sorry, but my first computer was a ZX Spectrum :D... and it's not true that the filename is restricted to 8 characters and does not allow spaces. At least files coming from my Mac are allowed to have more characters and spaces!
