    Hello,

    I have found a bug that really breaks your editor, 

    When using the backticks '`' your editor does not handle them, they support input much the same as single quote or double quotes do other that the backtick supports multi-line.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.write(`
    <div id="#text">
       this is some text
    </div>`);
    </script>

    Hello Martin,

    Thank you for contacting us about this.

    To assist you on the issue, I would need to know which AppBuilder Client are you using - Desktop or Web?

    Additionally, we are aware that in the AppBuilder Desktop Client, when you use backtick for a multi-line code, the code editor marks it in red. However, the application is successfully built and run afterwards. This said, have you tried that and if so, are you experiencing issue with it or it is just the editor that fails on your side?

    I am looking forward to you reply.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    The Desktop Client, 

    And yes my app does build and compile currently but this failure in the editor makes it 10 times harder to find issues when there is a problem with my other code in the same file.

    You said you're aware but it was not listed on your known bugs this is why i reported it could you please fix this issue as i said it does make it a lot harder to debug other issues in the file when using backticks.

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    We will surely add this as a known issue for the AppBuilder Windows client. Also, we will raise the priority of the bug in our backlog, but still I cannot tell when it will be fixed.

    As a workaround, I can only suggest using different AppBuilder client at this stage. You can even give a try the AppBuilder Universal Desktop client which is still in Beta.

    I hope this is of any help.
