FlexReport Paragraph Field Loses Formatting

    I am designing a report that has a set of standard formatted text that appears in the report footer. I inserted this text into a "Paragraph Field" and when I paste the text it, it keeps its formatting. Once I stop editing the text, it loses most of the formatting of that text. It seems to keep things like bolded headers but headers that had been centered get shoved all the way over to the left margin, indents of numbered lists also get shoved over to the left. Any suggestions? I am trying to avoid having to recreate this simple standard rich text blur without having to break it into dozens of separate rtf fields.

    As per the developers, you will need to use the RtfField instead of the ParagraphField, and insert the RTF text to the Text property of the RtfField. Please refer to the sample report attached.
