problems adding new NMEA source
#1
I've noticed a consistent problem when adding a new NMEA 0183 source in the openplotter window.  It will not let me give my new sources any logical name.  I've resorted to calling a new source bob,  literally "bob"  its the only input for name it will take without responding with an error that stating that the name string must be between 1 and 15 characters....   I first ran into this when trying to add my AIS hat using the following names "AIS" "dAISy", "dAISY_HAT"  none of which openplotter like!  So I add them using the advanced option.  The problem then is I can only edit it using the advanced options or I end up with the same name eror.  I'm currently on 0.17  of open plotter.

I'm sure this has been mentioned before.  If so then just merge with the existing thread ( couldn't find one)
