"List of" summary field strips out text formatting
Operating system version
Description of the issue
IF you have a calculation field with a text result type that formats some of the text in a field, FileMaker 13's new "list of" summary field produces a return delimited list of the text in this field, but all text formatting will be removed.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Set up this calculation field expression:
"Plain Text " & TextStyleAdd ( "Bold Text" ; Bold )
Define sListField as a Summary field that produces the "list of" this summary field.
Create several records in your found set and note the value in sListField.
"Plain Text" as plain text and "Bold Text" as bold text in each row of text in this field.
All the text is plain text, no text is Bold.
Just checking to see if this is a bug or "by design".
It is possible to set up a self join where the "list of" field is used to produce a list of Primary keys and an unstored calculation field copies the value of this summary field. Use this unstored calc field as a match field to the primary key of a second occurrence if the same table and now you can use the List function to get this list of text, but with the formatting intact.
