How can i set the ValueOf element string value to be Bold and Italic inside the template.docx using the Developer tab?

Thank you in advance.

Add a space (or any other character) before or after the ValueOf (depending of the horizontal alignment) and format that space. When rendering the document, fleXdoc will look for style-settings on previous or following runs and copy them to the run that contains the ValueOf.

Word does not support applying styles to custom XML tags. Therefore this work-a-round was needed. However, the additional space is hardly ever a problem for anyone and when the ValueOf is inside a line of text, there are already styles around it to copy.

Good luck!
