WWI / Phrase / Issues in display

Dear all

most of you know: WWI can be a "troublesome" tool. We have identified a new "trouble". Up to now we have not checked marketplace (is there any reference to a correction using a new WWI version e.g.); but my assumption is: this is a "new" issue.

Topic runs like:

Anybody knows that you can use "fonts" in a WWI document. Normally you can use them pretty easy and you can format one paraphraph as "bold" and the other as "italic"

We have identified now that under very special circumstances this formating seems not to work properly.

Those who are EHS and WWI experts knows that we can use in EHS phrases using "placeholders"

That means: during the preparation of the data to be presented a text is used to be inserted in some phrase (e.g. like: If it burns you need to use XYZ to start the firefighting; the XYZ is defined somether else (e.g. could be "Water")).

Now we have realized that you can not format a paragraph in which such "place holder phrases" are used using "bold" (or italic or...). We have prepared a small test template and we have tried a lot but we could not get the sentence "If it burns you need to use water to start the firefighting" as bold (Bold was the primary test scenario)

Any body out there who have had similar findings (PS: we plan to start OSS dialog any how) for place holder phrases and limitations for teh "look and feel" as explained?

Dear Holger

we will address to SAP (I assume); but i am little bit surprised; the "phrase holder" technique is now existing for a long period;

I would assume that somebody different (e.g. mainly in GLM area) have tried to do nearly the same like we have tried to do so; and if somebody would have seen this error /Issue I assume that they tried to do the same: start OSS dialog etc. and therefore the WWI should be able to handle this as I would assume that SAP would have tried to fix the issue; and this assumption seems to be wrong

We are using may be not using "most current WWI" version; but we are close to use it (may be one or two SPs are missing)
