Weird text formatting issues in Text Object

Hello,

I've noticed "interesting" text formatting issue on Text Object in Sense (2.1.1).

I have small table with strings that contain underscore character ('_'):

Flex_MI_Vars_Table:

load * inline [

Display_Name, Variable_Visits, Variable_Compare_Visits

Postal, tr_same_store_postal_code_visits, tr_same_store_postal_code_compare_visits

Region, tr_same_store_region_visits, tr_same_store_region_compare_visits

Market, tr_same_store_market_visits, tr_same_store_market_compare_visits

];

Everything works fine if I display these records in Pivot, Standard Table or KPI Objects:

When the same string is displayed in standard Text / Image object, these strings are not displayed properly:

1. The underscore symbol is missing and the substring after that is formatted with "Italian" font style

Sample_2.png

2. And looks like this "text formatting" is really depends on the following and preceding text for these strings

Sample_3.png

The "Market String = ..." measure's code is identical for both samples above.

'Market String = ' & Maxstring({<Display_Name = {'Market'}>}Variable_Visits) & chr(10) &

'Postal String = ' & Maxstring({<Display_Name = {'Postal'}>}Variable_Visits) & chr(10) &

'Region String = ' & Maxstring({<Display_Name = {'Region'}>}Variable_Visits) & chr(10) & chr(10) &

But text box displays it differently! 

So it looks like the ('_') character works as some kind of Text Formatting symbol (which I was told not yet available in Qlik!)....

I would appreciate some clarification or suggestions how to handle this case...

Best regards,

Vladimir

Re: Weird text formatting issues in Text Object

Confirmed as a bug.

Should be fixed in the next release.

Stay tuned :-).
