I finished a geometry in OpenStudio 1.7.0. Then exported a GBxml file to open it in Trace 700 and is not loading the spaces. Does this OpenStudio version supports GBXML for Trace 700 or I have to go back to an older version?

After realizing that the Open Studio version was not causing the issue, more testing revealed that GBxml loader rejects the whole file if a space ID has a letter that is not supported. For example, one of the spanish translations of restroom or bathroom is "baño". So space IDs in spanish shall avoid the use of letter "ñ" in space IDs. After removing "ñ" from a few spaces IDs, then I was able to load the file.
