    The symbol + and %2b are replaced by space. How can i use + symbol in any textfield. For example : OPP_NAME=Photo+Review+++Drawing should be shown as 
    Photo Review + Drawing in input field. This is just an example.

    I am not sure if we can pass + sign to the text fields using URL parameters. The + sign in the URL parameter is being replaced with a space in the text field. Let me forward the thread to our backend team to check this up. If there is any news in this regard, we'll let you know on this thread.

    Thanks!
