Inputting asterisk in a RTE

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.

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.

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.

Hi,

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.

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
