11.x Schematic Editor - Unable to add text strings with single or double quotes


When I attempt to add text strings to schematicsthat include double-quotes (") via the "Add Text" feature, the following error pops up:
"Invalid Command: 'set txwin TW|1204|1000 value This is a test" -sn=1'"

Also, when I add text that includes single quotes in the string ('), upon saving, closing, and re-opening the schematic, I lose all the text left to the last entered single quote.
How can I resolve this issue?


Double quotes in a text string are not supported, but single quotes are allowed. The Schematic Editor is not handling either single quotesor double-quotes in text comments correctly.
To work around this issue, use the tick symbol (') to represent single quotes and double ticks ('') for double quotes.
This issue is resolved inISE Design Suite 12.2.
Single quotes are supported.
Double quotes are automatically converted to single quotes.
