Printing brackets in text field

I want to print brackets “()” in text field, like “Feb 24(Sat)”
Is there escape letter in text field?

Hi, if you want to print

Feb 24(Sat)
it will work as is. ( meaning it will print Feb 24 (Sat) no issues)

but if you want to print just a number (24) then there is no way you can as the brackets will cause it to be a expression and only 24 will appear. unless you have text inside the brackets.

for example (24 hours)

@canasta102 . I think all you can do , if you want to use a TAG , is put them on another layer . I tried “(” it does not work on WFS .

Dont need to , see my example @russellcresser if the word is wed

Yes, you are right.
I want to use “(” with tags: [MON]/[DAY_1_31] ([DAY_WEEK_S])

hi sorry i was wrong. after testing with tags it wont work.
only way is as @russellcresser explained

easier method is three layers.




align the layers according and use grouping for to adjust as a group
