I am not sure I understand you. can you post a screen recording?

Apologies for the confusing post.
Here’s screen recording.

Upon further investigation, it appears that the existence of a special character does not affect the outcome.

1st and 2nd example in the recording are basically same thing (Didn’t aware when I’m recording, sorry).

Thank you for your support!
