Overview

Starting with Squish 4.2 the object map editor in the Squish IDE allows to enter special characters into object property values. However, this requires that the character used for escaping other special characters - the backslash ("") - must be treated specially, too:

Desired characterWhat to enter
Backslash ("")\
Tab ("\t”)\t
Newline ("\n”)\n
Carriage return ("\r”)\r
