I have been saying this now for more than a decade: it is time that one should be able to format fonts within an Acess field, or at least within a message field. One should be able to incorporate rich text formatting. Currently, every field allows the user to select a font format for a given field and everything remains the same within that field. However, what if one is citing from a book and wants to place the title in italics. That is now impossible. When Lotus 1-2-3 first came out, it too only allowed plain formatting. The programmers of Excel realized this was a shortcoming and this helped to bring Lotus user to Excel. Similarly, I want to be able to use rich text formatting in a memo field at least and then to transfer that to MS Word and keep the formatting. Please don't make me wait another decade! Thank you for considering this.
