    Format text in merge field

    It is very desirable to be able to format (with HTML) the text that is assigned to a merge field.

    Consider the following example:

    Hello <strong>World</strong>!

    The resulting document would contain the word "World" as bold.

    Similarly, it is equally desirable to assign text containing links as HTML to a merge field.

    Consider the following example:

    Hello <a href="http://www.example.com">World</a>!

    Here, the word "World" would be linked to "http://www.example.com" in the output document.

    Could this be implemented?

    Any movement on links in output docs? This feature is becoming critical for our app.

    Thanks, Doug

    Hi Doug,

    Thank you for your request.

    We have put this feature – text formatting as well as hyperlinks – on our agenda, but it is still a few months away.

    Would like to use the HTML from TinyMCE, so I'm very curious about the solution about this :)

    Re: Format text in merge field

    is there any plan to implement HTML or RTF formated data for the mail merge functiuons - we would like to use the product for a project but when this is not possible we have to search for an other solution.

    Is there an other way to solve this problem or to use the TX Text control - would this be possible with the base product ?
