Special characters in Album name

Hi,
How is possible to have characters like a French é or even a simple () in an Album name?
Thanks
Paul

Just type them in to the Album Title field in the create/edit album dialog in Publisher (not the Album field at the top of the dialog box, but the Album Title field in the Base Settings tab)

Hi Rod,
Yes I was able to do this but wondered why it is not possible to type in the Album field at the top of the dialog box.
Thanks
Paul

Re: Special characters in Album name

Probably because that field is used by Lightroom and the Backlight database and special characters probably mess up database entries.
It's not a front-facing field anyway. You're the only one who's going to see it.

Re: Special characters in Album name

Hi Paul, the first field is a fixed field in Lightroom publisher collections and Lightroom enforces the restriction.  Our additional Title field was added to work around this limitation.
