Report Designer - Adjust Font properties within a text box

  • 12 January 2021

In Report Designer, we have a text box with several lines of text.  The requirement is to adjust the font color or bold property for only a few words in the middle of this text string.  Like this.

We reviewed the Format function, but didn’t see an option to control these properties.

Anyone know a way to do this?

Idea only:  Are you familiar with adding line breaks and concatenation multiple fields together in the value field?


Fieldone + ‘  ‘ + FieldTwo + ‘{br} 


br is an embedded line break. There has to be the same for font and color. These are HTML tags. 

Worth a shot to try. 

Thank you Mark.  Yes -  we use the br tag often.  From your suggestion, I tried several HTML formatting tags, but the system interpreted them as text strings.  

Also - the br tag is usable standalone vs Bold and other tags want an open and close surrounding the text impacted.  So wondering if that is a factor.

Thanks for the idea.  Let me know if you if you know how to make this work.
