Are colons allowed as a property value?

Hey guys a quick question here. I’m wondering if I can use colons as property values. I checked through the property documentation as well as YAML and it isn’t entirely clear to me.

One of my most common file properties is “title” and lots of book titles have the following format:

Home: The History of an Idea

Thanks in advance!

Yes. The UI will handle this seamlessly for you, but if you’re adding properties in source mode, remember to wrap the colon-containing value in quotes, for example, title: "Home: The History of an Idea".
