    Keep text formatting in XML file

    kopfwerk

      Hi!

       

      I have a database with some text fields, where the user may use text formatting like bold or colour to format the text.

       

      The text is then exported via XML to Indesign, but all the text formatting is lost.

       

      Is there a way to pass those formatting options through to Indesign using XML?

       

      Thanks for any help!

          Matz, See if "GetAsCSS()" does anything that will help. I don't like the way it works entirely, but it may give you something that you can then calculate for your XML.
