[Template] [Excel] Text disappear with some cell formatting

Hello AppSheet Team, @TDhers

After some tests,

It seems that text cells with underline or Bold on some parts of the value disappear on the final AppSheet result.

Exemple :

“This is a Test Exemple” will not work

So Complex Cells Formatting is not functional.

Would be nice if this can be fixed.

Hi Jeremie,

Our template formatting support in Excel templates is really primitive.
If you want control over text formatting I suggest using either Google Docs or Word.
Our text formatting support is much richer for those.
You can format data as tables in both Google Docs and Word templates.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

I know, Word and Doc are much richer on for this part, but totally not adapted to my client needs and requirements output format.

It was just to let you know about of this issue.
