|2||Special characters in STEP 7:|
From STEP 7 V5.2 you can enter special characters for documentation purposes or as a comment without any restrictions.
If you are using a version of STEP 7 < V5.2, then it might not be possible to enter special characters directly in every STEP 7 application. For example, in STEP 7 V5.1 it is possible to enter special characters directly in comment fields in the HW Config, but not in block or network comment fields in the LAD/FBD/STL editor.
Please note that you cannot use special characters in every input field. For example, special characters are not usually permitted in tag names.
