Text styles in text fragments

Instead of editing your text fragments and making text bold, cursive, underlined, strikethrough or superscript after having created a document with the Studio, you are able to add these styles in the text fragments themselves. Simply add a text fragment and use one of the following symbols to add a style to a certain text.

<b>...</b>: creates bold text.

<i>...</i>: creates cursive text.

<u>...</u>: creates underlined text.

<s>...</s>: creates strikethrough text.

<+>...</+>: creates superscript² (the small 2) text.

Note on styling with the Studio

While you can use quite some styling techniques in the Studio (take a look at styles as well), it is advisable to do most layout in Word. Editing your document in Word is - most of the time - easier and better. However, in some cases you need small parts of a variable text to be styled. In that case styling with the Studio is a fine option.

Consider this:

I really want to have a sentence in italics!

This is perfectly fine to do in Word. All you need to do is change the text fragment you pasted to italics. However, consider this:

“I really want to have a sandwich!”

In this case it is way easier to just style ‘really’ in the Studio. Try to keep this in mind when modeling!

Editing variable formatting within a text fragment

If you need to edit a variable before you put it in a text fragment (for example, changing a number’s formatting) you can do so with a formula. However, you can also double click the first word of your variable - the one with an underlined first letter. This will open up the following screen with options:
