How to suppress variable substitution in TEXT action

Post by ItsJustATypo »

I have added a Text action. My text is "1234 Main Street #7" <-- "#7" is the literal apartment number, not a variable!

DESIRED: I want the overlay to display exactly "1234 Main Street #7"

However, when I convert multiple photos, the text is automatically changed to :

1234 Main Street 17
1234 Main Street 27
1234 Main Street 37
1234 Main Street 47
etc.

How can I prevent this variable substitution from occurring? Is there an option to turn off substitution or templating? Is there an escape character?

Thank you
