I have a calculated text field that is primarily used when a filter is exported from Jira to Excel for offline usage.
I have used "s.append ("< strong>")" and "s.append ("< /strong>")" and also tried it with "s.append ("< b")" and "s.append ("< /b>")". Both options do turn that portion of my calculated text bold in my webbrowser, but when I export it to Excel, it shows the tags as text.
what should I do in order to show this bold in the exported Excel?
Thanks for your quick reply.
Agreed, but the JIRA export is in the .xls format. When I open this file in for instance Notepad++ and edit the content with < strong> and < /strong>, it does show correct in Excel. So for some reason, JIRA is not including the format in the export it creates. It does however include formatting in other cells, like the headers.
I find it strange, since "\n" for a line break does work in the XLS export, but is not shown in JIRA.
Let me clarify: your questions are pushing me in the right direction I think :-) :
The text that is exported in bold to Excel by default (for instance in the header: "Displaying x issues...":
So: if we can get "<" into the export instead of "<", I think it should work.
