Dear friends,

I have a form that contains long answers. They might have lists also. How I can show them into a Word and show them exactly how they are written: multiple paragraphs or lists.

Actually they appear in only one long sentence.

The connections with Flow is perfect. The problem is the format.

 

If the answer is:

Here is the answer and now I will jump to another line.

Second line and maybe starting a list:

1. List item one

2. List item two

 

In Word it appears like:

Here is the answer and now I will jump to another line. Second line and maybe starting a list: 1. List item one 2. List item two

 

How can I format it?

 

Thanks!!!

The only workaround I figured out is to replace the " ' " carachter with " ` " when populating the Word document in the bloc "Populate a Microsoft Word Template (Preview)"

 

replace(body('Get_response_details')?['ra0814f15501a46c7bb0cd158bbd39507'],'''','`')
 
I still did not find a solution for the multiple paragraphs or lists... Word fils is correct but PDF file not

Hi @jvila 

 

The Word connector in Flow is very new and limited at the moment so it won't do any formatting the way that we want it too (also doesn't do dynamic naming and paths which is a pain!).

 

You'll have to wait for more features to come through.

I'm in the same boat waiting for the connector to improve, so in the meantime I'm using Plumsail for my document needs.

 

Cheers

Damien
