Adding Hashtag sign "#" to text!

Hello everyone, I’m trying to add the pound sign “Hashtag #” to a text in the video but it won’t show and it removes the text after, apparently it’s because the program uses pound signs for built-in codes, but how can i come around this problem!
Thanks in advance.

Precede the hash with single backslash.

Thank you very much, worked.

Seems to be a common problem. Maybe a tooltip should be added to the UI to give the user a hint.

I added a button in v17.11.04 to insert the hash symbol!
