Calendar - & (ampersand)

Postby dhzobell » Thu Dec 08, 2011 5:52 pm

When I type the "&" into the New Calendar, it prints as "&"
Yes, it is an ampersand, but I only want the & to show.

To be specific, I think you mean that if there is an ampersand in an event title (e.g., "Fathers & Sons"), it will print out as "Fathers & Sons" when you click the Print button and choose to print or download the calendar. It also happens with other special characters:

  • "a—b" displays as "a—b"
  • 'The "Heber Creeper"' displays as 'The ' (double quotes cause truncation)
  • "a<b" displays as "a" (angle brackets also cause truncation)
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Also reported here. This does appear to be one step closer than the previously reported bug, so that means it's being worked on.

I've logged this as a bug to be fixed in the 2.0.5 release.
