Output Module dropping characters

Using Bridge CC 2019 on Windows 7 Professional. When making contact sheets I am using a file path as a header, but when I export to PDF the document is dropping all backslashes and subsequent characters.

For example, if I input the header as:

P:\Current\168

The exported PDF header reads:

P:urrent68

The only solution I have found thus far is to input double backslashes (P:\\Current\\168) to avoid escape characters, but I don't want to manually add backslashes for every contact sheet as the file paths are quite long and I have many to copy...

try using forward slashes

/

the backslash key is often still used as an escape in a lot of software, so by using it in the name you are doing, it is escaping out of the naming sequence, causing you to drop the characters.

Thanks Daniel. This works, but I still have the same issue as I am copying existing file paths and pasting them as contact sheet headers. The file paths always copy from windows explorer with backslashes. So I am either replacing backslashes manually with forward slashes or double backslashes.

I suppose I should have mentioned that I was not having this problem working on another machine with the same operating system but running Bridge CS6. It really doesn't take THAT long to manually change the headers after pasting, but to avoid a step in the process that introduces human error would be nice!

There is a known bug with certain characters in the Output Module. Not sure on ETA for a fix but it has been reported.
