    Having a colon in a snippet default value

    Adam Cameron. Level 5

      I have a snippet, and one of the variables is for a filesystem path, which I would like to default to C:\temp.  However the input only displays "C".  After a bit of experimentation, it seems like one can’t have colons in default values.  I guess this is due to the way a colon is the delimiter between a variable name and its default.  However shouldn’t only the first colon be relevant to that?

      Does anyone know if there is any way of "escaping" an embedded colon?  There’s no mention of it in the CFE docs, and the CFB docs covering the same topic aren’t even as comprehensive as the CFE ones (no mention of defaults for variables at all).
