Hello,

Is it possible to bold a single word in the text box of the PDF report? Or do other formatting.

In the HTML reports that is possible with tags.

BR,

Mika

If you use a text element something like this should work:

Use this expression

this is a test of the <b>bold</b> text element

Make sure to set the type to HTML and not Auto.

Is this working in the PDF file? I have tested and in the pdf file I can see only the <b> tags, but not a bold word..

Hi,
normally it should work for text elements. As Jason already said
'Make sure to set the type to HTML and not Auto.'
At the top of the edit text item window you can set the type value.
