The sub-processes child to parent link does not work if you use "<" or ">" sign in the name.

I think this has to do with the XML backend, I have shared the XML of a mocked-up process.
In the below image the parent subprocess link does not work. For sake of clarity the actual name of the subprocess was "Play <= Yes"


However, if I remove the "<" sign it works as shown in the below image.



Also, in terms of functionality it would be great if Rapidminer Studio supports subprocess child to parent navigation via mouse forward-back buttons.

    Interesting, yes, that looks like an issue, that I'm sure the engineers at RM will figure out. In the meantime, you can use the HTML tag for "<", which is "&lt;" , in the name.
     
    While it shows up as "&lt;" when you are looking at that subprocess, that HTML tag changes to the "<" once inside that subprocess.

    And, once inside the child subprocess, the parent subprocess link works, again with the "<" showing up in the name.

    @PaulMSimpson
    Thanks for a quick workaround, this helps for sure. In my actual deployment, I replaced it with less than as the words.  ;) 
    I thought that I should bring it up to RM Dev team.

    hi @hbajpai yes I actually hesitated before pushing this to dev as TBH I thought there was a workaround (thx @PaulMSimpson). I'm going to just cc @Marco_Boeck and see what he has to say...

    Hi,

    the buttons to navigate are indeed very simple HTML <a> tags. By using <> you're creating an invalid syntax and thus breaking them. We can escape the name in the future, then the problem should go away. Scott, can you create a bug ticket for this, please?

    Regards,
    Marco

    @Marco_Boeck
    Is there a way to extend similar functionality to the Execute Process within a Process?

    For example: In the process below, if I double click on 'Execute 01 Text pre-processing' it opens up that process, but there's no way to navigate back to the parent process in the UI.

    Its a much easier way to navigate to the parent process when we have tons of Executeprocess operators in one process. I have been asked by many users asking for this.
