Need help inserting a comma after the salution merge field.  I have been unable to add text immediately following the merge field. Thanks!

 

Example:

Dear First Name
 
Hope this finds you well.

Hello @CAPDevelopment ,

 

I checked your latest email, and it had no issue adding punctuation or other text after. You can also have punctuation be included by default as part of the greeting tag, but it can in-fact be typed after.

 

Is the issue that you're not seeing the blinking typing line against the coded dashes, or is the text not typing at all when you attempt to? Does the issue also occur in other browsers or in incognito/private mode?
