Test Step text formatting (italic/bold etc) is not transferred correctly to Excel reports

Tuesday, February 7, 2012
Hi Inflrectra,

I have noticed on exporting test cases with test steps that contain text formatting from SpiraTeam to Excel, the formatted text is placed into Excel cells wrapped in XML code and not formatted correctly (even dropping formatting altogether would be an acceptable work-around.

This causes a lot of time in having to manually remove the tags and extraneous text.

Could you please confirm / provide a method for us to export text formatting correctly. Thanks again.

Is this using the Excel import/export add-in or the Excel reports in the system? If using the Excel import/export add-in, there is an option in the preferences dialog box to have it strip the formatting.
