How to enter a space in Photographer Name

Alas, I can't figure out how to enter a space in the Photographer Name screen on the K-50. For example, "Joe Smith" versus "JoeSmith" or "Joe_Smith".

As you noted, the sideways ] is a space. It's the first character on the 4th row, just to the left of the +. This shows as a sideways ] on the camera display but does in fact record a space in the image. Thanks!

Took me FOREVER to discover that! I had originally used an "_" for <space>, but thx for posting! This SHOULD be more obvious or explained in the instructions!

You're obviously not a programmer, else you would / should have known it That symbol has been used for ages to indicate a space when writing code on paper.
