Studio 2015: ampersand character being changed despite settings

Hi there,

Here's a description of the problem: I'm working with SGML documents, and have the entities section of the appropriate file types set so that the ampersand character (&) isn't converted to the "amp" entity when "saving target as...". I've checked both in the settings for the current project and the general file type settings for Studio 2015.

And yet, when an ampersand character (created with the keyboard key) appears in my bilingual document, and I save the target SGML file and check it thereafter, BAM, there it is, converted into an "amp" SGML entity.

This has to be a bug, right? As I've mentioned, I've checked both in the current project settings and in the general, and told Studio not to do that.
