You can't create a preset group containing a space when the option Preferences > File Handling > When A File Name Has A Space is set to Replace With An Underscore. Originally reported by David Brookens:

https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/masks-as-presets.44625/ 

 

To reproduce:

 

1. Set the option Preferences > File Handling > When A File Name Has A Space to Replace With An Underscore.

 

2. In Develop, create a preset, and in Group, select New Group.

 

3. Enter "X Y" for the group name, and observe that Create is greyed out:

4. Instead, enter "XY" and observe that Create is now enabled.

 

5. Set the option Preferences > File Handling > When A File Name Has A Space to Leave As-Is.

 

6. Repeat steps 2-3 and observe that Create is not greyed out.

 

Obviously, preferences about file naming shouldn't affect preset group names, since groups aren't materialized as file folders (they're stored in .xmp files).

 

Tested on LR 11.1 / Mac OS 11.6.2.

If I remember correctly, the same thing happens (or happened, maybe this one got fixed) with folders. You cannot (could not) create a folder  (in the folder panel or in the destination tab of the import dialog) with a space in its name if that preference option is set.
