    Formatted Text Container

    Am I correct in understanding that the only "container" which displays formatted text (underlined, bold, etc.) in Word 97 is the document object? Autotext entries can hold the formatted text, but their is no way for autotext to be manipulated directly by a user -- it must be dumped into a document then re-added to the autotext list.

    Furthermore, the dataobject can hold formatted text, but it too cannot be modified directly by the user.

    In Word 200X, the RichTextbox is the only other "container" that not only displays formatted text, but allows the user to edit the text.

    These are my assumptions. Am I correct?

    (I'm laying the groundwork for an autotext editor that will allow easy manipulation of autotext similar to the doc var editor written by Chris Woodman (chriswoodman@compuserve.com) in his ShortOrg.dot utility.)

    Hi Kevin,

    Your assumptions sound correct, as far as I know (which ain't always too far!).

    Gary,

    I appreciate the feedback. Now I have to determine if I want my Autotext editor to support Word 97 or not.
