    I'm finding rather large inconsistencies with MergeField formatting. I am binding my RichTextBox with the DocxDataProvider. On a "save" I am saving the byte[] data to a database. Sometimes the MergeFields formatting saves, other times it does not. I am noticing if there are two MergeFields right next to each other, separated by a space, the MergeField on the right will not have it's formatting saved.

    The same holds true if you have a 2 column table, the MergeFields in the left column preserve their formatting, however the ones in the right do not. Though this is not an all the time thing.

    Is DocxDataProvider and saving the byte[] data that unreliable? Is there a more reliable way to do things. I've wasted a lot of time playing with this, and it was a great idea to help contain our client's from making mistakes/misspellings in Word.

    I'm to the worn-down phase now and will consider taking this away from the DocxDataProvider and the MVVM pattern, if i can get more reliability.

    Hello Richard,

     Please excuse us for the delayed response.

    We are aware of a problem where merge fields lose their formatting when saved without item source. Can you confirm that your problem is the same?
    If not, can you please give us a stable procedure to reproduce the described behavior.

    Looking forward to your reply.
