Include the "@" symbol in a custom symbol

I am using Creo Parametric Release 4.0 and DatecodeM110

I would like to include "@" symbol in a custom symbol but when i add the character it does not remain after redefining the symbol. Does this character require special handling?

& and @ are used for formatting in Creo.  Here is a list of text tips that I have documented:

  • Overwrite Dimension: @O 
  • Box around text: @[***@] 
  • Superscript: @+***@#
  • Subscript: @-***@#
  • Super/Subscript {0:***}{1:@+***@#)@-***@#
  • Multiple formats: 
    • To edit the style of one section of a note, first click to select the entire note, then click again to select just the section you want to change. You can then RMB -> Text Style... and change size etc. as required. 
    • This works directly with separate lines within a note, but to change just one part within a line you must first separate that section by adding {1: and } around the relevant text: 
    • {1:Large Text} Small Text
    • Separate Line
    • Then close the note editor and proceed as above. 
  • Round Parameter Value:  add [.X] after the parameter name, X being the number of decimals. 
  • Leader Location on Note: add @O to line on note. 
  • Use & or @:  Type twice in note e.g., && or @@

That worked. Thank You!
