problem with branding text

Hello NSIS2k team,

i have a little problem with the branding text:

I will write a and char '&', the result in the installer is a underline char '_'.

That problem i have with NSIS 1.98 and NSIS 2.0a7.



Thank you for you help!

I presume you mean that a sequence like &a creates an underlined letter a. If this is the case try writing \&a instead. Does that help? (I'm off to play tennis, good luck )

That's normal Windows behaviour. Just use && and it should work.

Hello kichik and Sunjammer,

Just add the SS_NOPREFIX style to the control and you can use "&" characters w/o mask ("&&")

The background window (BGGradient) now has this kind of settings and you can now use names with & without it showing underscores (_).
