Description not formatable

Nov 11, 2014 at 5:29 AM
Hi

When I Import my Backlog into Word, I cannot set a Font size for the description.
I assume its because of uses the Standard HTML Sizes of the field.

Is there any way to "force" a formatting for the HTML fields like the description?
(Using TFS 2012 and Word 2010 [soon both Version will be 2013])

I don't think there is a way to do what you are asking, at least not without significant development effort.

OK

Is there a way to import the Fields as plain Text instead of HTML (and loose all formatting)?

Not with the code as written, and again, I don't think there is an easy way to achieve this even changing the code. You could define the placeholder in the layout using a plain text content control, but that just means you will get the raw HTML in the document.

Thanks for your reply

Do you have any plans to add this feature (either strip the HTML formatting or allow formatting of HTML content)?

The reason why I need it is: we print the Backlog Items to cards and the default font size is way to small to be usable on a paper Task-Board.

The code should soon be published as open source, then anyone can make the changes they would like.
