# Bug: Text duplicating \

Hello,

I noticed an annoying, but not overly troublesome bug involving the “Text” command and " \ "

First I type “Text” and create the text field, then I type or copy the address of a file (have tested with both and both create the issue), such as “S:\place\thing\stuff”

if I exit the text editing window, and reopen it, or say copy it to change something, then it reads “S: \ \ place \ \ thing \ \ stuff” but this change only take effect if I change something else in the text edit window.

If I repeat the process, it continues “S: \ \ \ \ place \ \ \ \ thing \ \ \ \ stuff” “S: \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ place \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ thing \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ stuff” and so on.

I have tested this on different computers with completely different hardware, but both systems are running windows 10.

:Added spaces because the post was eating my \

I’ve seen this too, and reported it.

I believe a fix is ready and probably will be available in 6.9
