I have a statictext that contains an ampersand. This effects the underlining of the next character and no ampersand.
The 'fix' of doubling up the ampersands simply effects two ampersands (neither underlined).
Any ideas, please?
Try using two ampersands instead of one.
Quoting from my original: "The 'fix' of doubling up the ampersands simply effects two ampersands (neither underlined)."
var d = new Window("dialog"); d.add("statictext", undefined, "aaaa &&&& bbb"); // CS6 d.add("statictext", undefined, "aaaa &&&\u202B bbb"); // СС2018 d.add("statictext", undefined, "aaaa &&&\u200B bbb"); // СС2018 d.show();
Adobe Replaced Flash based ScriptUI in CC 2015 with a HTML based version. There are issues between versions scripts compatibility issues exists.
That's not material here, but thank you anyway.
I had the same problem in CS6 where I found solution for, but later was irritated it doesn't work in CC.
Thank you for a quick and correct answer. Rather ridiculous isn't it that to effect a single ampersand one has to enter "&&&\u200B"?
Ha, I had the same problem in rather different context. When I produce a typeface with an ampersand in the descriptive name of stylistic sets, this will also underline the next character in the OpenType menu of the current InDesign CC. Using two ampersands helps for InDesign, but then other applications display && in the menu. I can't fix that dilemma, I hope Adobe does, soon.
