Version control log tab filtering by user with comma in name

Answered

I try to filter the git commits by user, using the User filter option on the log tab of the version control window. I choose "Select..."

The git users at the company I work for are named as Lastname, Initials (Firstname). Note the comma between the last name and the first name.

When I try to search, Intellij interprets the comma as a separator between user names. This is not desired. How can I make it do the right thing and find the user I'm looking for?

Just tested, and looks like comma in names is interpreted correctly.

You just need to specify each username on a new line.

This is in IDEA 2016.2.
