Dash character as it relates to numbers in highlighter

Post by jgodfrey »

Consider the following image:

Notice that my numbers are "yellow" in color. However, notice that the "-" characters are yellow also. I assume that's because the dash is being interpreted as a numeric negative sign. IMO, that would be fine if the dash preceded a number, however in this case it does not. Do I have any control over this? If not, is this something that could be changed/fixed in a future release?

Thanks,

Jeff

Not sure when this was changed, but the above example seems to work as expected in v7.72.
