I just wanted to create a trigger for tags that contain “beta”, so I started to type in:
*beta* (yes with both
I ended with having only:
beta* inside the field.
Short testing showed that the
* is ignored when it is the first / only character in the input.
There is no need to ignore that
* when typed in as the first character just because it is equals to the default imho.
It just creates issues because the user expects that the input field accepts what is typed.
