Why the vertical bar | disappears after I copy the text and paste it on Instagram post


I use Trello for Social Networks. I manage each post on Trello cards and then I copy and paste the descriptions like Copy for Instagram.
It happens that after copying and pasting the created description, between sentences divided by | then they do not appear in the instagram post.

Example: Sunny | Excellent location | Great ... looks like this: Sunny  Excellent location  Great

The vertical bars disappear completely and when you try to edit the post to put them back, do not take them and leave the spaces again
Is it because of the Markdown format that Trello uses?Error vertical bars.png

Any chance that the service does not accept or support that specific character? Have you tried copying/pasting to another document such as a native note app or word document to see if the characters are pasted correctly?

Thank you so much for you answer. This morning I’ve tried just writing a text as a copy on Instagram with the | and happened the same thing. I guess now is an Instagram problem after the last update. Thanks again.
