After updating to HL8.7 on my Windows computer, the programm isn't able to load the long ID's in my custom game system. Whats wrong?

I copied this from the readme for this update:


Enhancements & Changes in Hero Lab v8.7:
1. The maximum length of unique identifiers for Things and Tags only has been reduced to 17 characters. This is necessary to support future planned capabilities. This change should only affect users who may have created their own gamesystem content and may have created long identifiers.


I'm sorry we needed to do this, and didn't figure out that we had this limitation when we originally allowed 20 characters.

OK. Thank you for your answer.

This will be a lot of work with some 100 entries.

Isn't 17 across the board better than having to remember whether 17 or 20 is allowed for each name?
