The synther (or perhaps upload processing) has, for several months now, been mangling common characters such as the ampersand. When synth is uploaded and first viewed it all characters are displayed by their ascii codes, requiring each synth description to be edited on the site likely only an hour or less after initially typed within the synther.

It annoyed me the first time I installed the last big update and I've been meaning to bring it up ever since. Would it be possible to do a mass search and replace on all the descriptions that have been mangled in the last few months?

Thanks.

Nathanael, this is a known issue, and we're working on a fix right now.  In the meantime you can work around this by editing the description from the website.

Thanks for the reply, Tony. 

I'm happy to edit my own but I'm thinking mainly of my fellow users whose patience may not extend as far. Count this thread as a reply to your invitation to post bugs from August 4th.
