Layout Designer symbol not appearing in a text box.

Using ACT for Financial Professionals v11.

When in the layout designer I am trying to add the ampersand symbol in a text box.  However, it just underlines the next character.  Any ideas how to get the symbol to show up?  I tried putting the symbol in double quotes, single quotes,  and forward slashes to no avail. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Try putting 2 of them.;  I think the second one shows.

When you say in the text box, do you mean in the field name for the text box or in a label?

A text box field object (created by going to Drawing the clicking on the Text icon to enter the field into the layout)

If you enter two of them in the designer, one of them will show up in the text field.

 

I see I was beat to the punch
