Why does my filter have © and ® symbols in it?
Article created: Dec 27 2001, updated: Dec 27 2001
The © and ® symbols are placeholders for a carriage return. While these symbols are generally hidden from view, they are visible in files, and in some edit controls.

Beginning with about version 6.625, Intersection Magic filters, import definitions, etc. support multiple lines. Since these multiple lines can not be saved in the files that store filters, the © and ® symbols are used when writing them to a file.
In most cases, the symbols will not be visible, but there are a few places where they can still be seen in the program. This is normal.
As long as you are running a version that supports carriage returns in filters, there is nothing to do. Things are working fine. If your version doesn't support multiple line filters, and you have a multiline filter, you must removed those © and ® symbols from the filter. It will then work just fine.
