Note: You cannot specify spaces, returns, and tabs as TangibleCharacters.

This parameter has no effect when MatchWholeWord is set to false.

For more information on using TangibleCharacters to specify punctuation characters to match, or to match punctuation at the start of a match, refer to IDOL Expert.

Note: If you set both the TangibleCharacters configuration parameter and the TangibleCharacters action, the action settings take precedence.
