Edit session converts '$' to #31
When copying and pasting external data into the program in an Edit Session, the program automatically converts dollarsigns ('$') into the MARC subfield delimiter. This is generally considered a feature.
A problem arises, however, if the user wants to paste an actual dollarsign into the record (for example, using a macro to set up an 020 or an item 9XX field). (SW)
Beginning with version 2.32, the program will support pasting literal dollarsigns into a record as long as they are enclosed by square brackets. (This is the same conversion technique used by the Text Editior–F10)
For example, to construct a macro for an 020 $c, use:
$c[$]00.00 or: ±c[$]00.00
$c$00.00 or: ±c$00.00Back to top
