Ampersands and Text Variables
Good Morning All,
I've got a text variable that stores a value which includes an ampersand. (i.e. P&C)
If I place a condition on a trigger that is based on that value, the trigger doesn't doesn't fire.
If I remove the ampersand and replace it with the word "and" everything works A+. Bracketing the value/condition with quotes doesn't seem to make a difference either.
I've noticed that ampersands are removed from names/values shown in the layer and trigger windows (P&C appears as PC). However, even with the ampersands removed all the values/triggers shown in those windows appear to be consistent with each other and to my mind should trigger as expected - but they don't.
In practical terms I'm fine using "and" instead of the "&" for the time being, but for peace of mind I'd like to know what gives so I can continue to grow my understanding of how things work in Storyline land.
