I'm attempting to create a button that says "Save & New".  However, using the normal chord for this "&&" changes the display on the button to "Save & .....".  Using just an single '&' does the normal mnemonic thing of underlining the next character. 

Note: the "..." is not because I've run out of room.  if I write "Save And New", it shows up just fine.

Hi Michael,

There is an issue with the text measure when you are trying to escape ampersand character.
This will be fixed in our next version. You could avoid this behavior by setting UseMnemonic property of TextPrimitive to false:

((TextPrimitive)buttonElementInRibbon1.Children[1].Children[1]).UseMnemonic = false

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

Best wishes,
