I am experience an issue where content being populated into rich text content controls, in a Word document, are no longer wrapping.
Content is being captured in Forms and then translated/formatted by Power Automate into a Word document. This process was created and used successfully last year but now the content just runs out of the cell.
I have tried to research into other instances but haven't found anything that matches, I have also done some troubleshooting with settings but nothing to date has worked.
Does anyone have suggestions on what else to try?

Hi @CharlesT1185 , try MS Forms instead of Word Forms. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/online-surveys-polls-quizzes. With a M365 account you can analyze your Forms Results with even Excel Online, stored in your OneDrive or in a collaborative SharePoint Library. Online Forms can save you a lot of paper and time, it is an easy way to get data from your form clients (Desktop, smartphone, usw..) even sharing a link to a form, so your clients dont have to print out their answers but get it per mail afterwards. So pls. dont use Word Forms anymore :), only an idea, greets from Eva.

So the only advice I can give is that you should take the field controls and according to my memory those controls can wrap the text within... your datasource, is it a SharePoint List? I hope so, because with that you can better see the versionings and also output the several audit results then...? My perfect combination on this topic would be: Forms - SharePoint - Word Template - Power Automate - Fill the Template - get PDF and Word result in the same library, like in this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVIWDRjPKUk

Hi @Eva Vogel
I have replicated the approach, as shown in video you have suggested, but I am still experiencing text running outside of the tables cells.
Microsoft Form completed -> Power Automate processes action -> Map date to Sharepoint library as meta data -> merge with a Word document -> save updated Word document to Sharepoint library -> convert to PDF -> email to person who completed form.
Current issue - long string of text isn't wrapping onto new lines it reaches the end of the cell within a table.
