Select DAT by value not finding apostrophes

The select DAT, when selecting by value, doesn’t seem to find apostrophes. It finds other punctuation, but not apostrophes

Using TouchDesigner 2022.26590 on Windows

Thanks for reporting this. I tried putting a backslash before the ’ and it matched it. So there are some unwritten rules.

The popup help (Alt-rollover) and the wiki for that parameter mentions “pattern matching”, which should link to the wiki page Pattern_Matching, which gives examples of TouchDesigner’s pattern matching, like chan* and chan[1-10:2].

But it doesn’t mention using \ as an escape character preceeding '. I will find out which other characters get this treatment and let you know / edit the wiki.
