Since * is used on RTE component to make text bold, is there a way to escaping it so that it can be used in text. In text * usually means that there's a footnote about that topic, so it make sense to be able to use that character.
You can use * character in a RTE. When you submit the text - the * character appears in text.
No it doesn't work. What happens is that the RTE component thinks is the start of text that needs to be in bold, so every text after the * appears in bold and the * is not shown.
Using Core Text Component here:
What version of AEM are you using and what components - libs, core?
If I use only one * in the text it works. But if there are 2 *, then component renders the text between as bold. And the *'s are not shown anymore.
Can you check what values are store in JCR property when you submit dialog.
I tried in new AEM 6.4.0 and not able to replicate the issue. Tried 4 different ways. What is the version of AEM you are using ?
No one within Adobe whom i have spoken too can reproduce this issue, Can you see if this can be re-produced on your end in a fresh AEM instance.
If you keep getting this - customer care asked that you open a support ticket.
Good point: I checked the value in the JCR, is still stored as an * but because of this I now think I know what's the issue. Thanks
