Sketched text by using parameter shows asterisks if the is no parameter value.
We are creating a simple label family table. Some instances don't need anything written in one of the parameters. We want to simply leave it empty or put in spaces, such that nothing shows up. This isn't possible. The spaces become * characters in the instance. The only way to get around this weird behavior is to have the generic have empty spaces and use the * command (which isn't preferred) in the family table. Please change this behavior - it does not follow the design intent!

Re: Sketched text by using parameter shows asterisks if the is no parameter value.
Thanks Kenny. Unfortunately in this case, the parameters are on separate lines. Sometimes there are 2 lines of text and sometimes 1. We want the paramter for the second line to be empty. The only way to do that is to have spaces in the generic and use the * for the instance.
