Designing in Office is great. You are using a very powerful tool that shows you your fully formatted document as you design. Designing in the document is by far the best way to do this.
But the control tags are still there. The forEach, if, and all the additional tags that control the output but are not part of the output. You end up with:
This is nice, but the [Employees] and [:forEach] are control tags. They are not shown in the generated output and they are both cluttering up the screen and leave you viewing a template that is "sort of" like the final, but not exactly.
Windward has added a new feature (Word only, version 20.1) where you can click a button in the designer and it will hide all control tags. The only tags displaying will be out & import tags (including pictures & charts). Click again and you have all the control tags visible. For the case of a paragraph composed of just control tags, the entire paragraph will be hidden.
This means the designer will be able to view the template as it will appear when generated. And the ability to instantly show/hide the control tags with a single click makes it very easy to edit your control tags when you need them, and put them out of sight when you do not.
This video shows them in action.
