Now raster names are surrounded by "" when added by double clicking, so the expression works. If they are written by hand without "", however, the result is all 0s

IMHO this should be closed, as users should use correct syntax when writing expression by hands.

#12 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 2 years ago

I don't agree: spaces in filenames are accepted by QGIS, so they should be escaped by calc engine.

#13 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 2 years ago

Where do we stand with this?

#14 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 2 years ago

Well, IMHO this is still an usability issue. What is your feeling?

identifiers with blanks in them have to be quoted - also in in "regular" expressions. So I don't see an issue here.
