String v. HTML String


As I understand, HTML markup is not interpreted if the Data Type is “string”. However, when I place a String field in a template, the markup is interpreted. Is this a bug? Is there some other distinction between String and HTML String I’m missing?


In the Options section of the Text Script wizard you will see that Insert Method is set to HTML by default. Changing this to Text inserts the content as is. This option was introduced after the initial release of the software where it was handled automatically based on the field type. We should make sure that on drag and drop of a text field the option is set to Text so it matches the field type correctly.
