BUG: Can no longer use '&' in single line string text field

When creating a new record saving content to single-line string text field, if the content contains ‘&’ this is being escaped as &

If I inspect the record in Dato and I try to manually override and change back to ‘&’ I am unable to save the record. I see the warning

Discard changes

There are some changes to the data inserted in the form which are not saved. Are you sure you want to leave the page?

This is only affecting records that have been created as of today 23 Feb 2023.
Previous records which contain ‘&’ in the field are unaffected and render as expected.


We just shipped a fix for this issue!

Can you try now once again?

Let me know if it works,
Sorry about this,

Thank you for the quick response! I can confirm this is now fixed :slightly_smiling_face:
