I copied your two versions and tried it myself. Here is my resuls compared to yours:
for FG to RTF, all printed as I wanted.
Paul: Looks fine to me also.
for FG to Preview, the italics were messed up but everything was there, including endnotes.
Paul: Same results as you.
for FJ to RTF, printed the 1st paragraph with italics, superscript and endnote, the 2nd paragraph petered out, no superscript and no endnote, but did finish printing the remainder of the report.
Paul: This printed fine for me.The paragraphs looked just like they did on the FG to RTF. The 2nd paragraph is complete and all endnotes are there. Where did the 2nd paragraph petered out ... what was the last thing printed?
for FJ to Preview, the italics were screwed up, but both paragraphs with superscripts printed - no endnotes though.
Paul: Same results. Note: the endnotes will not show in the preview of the FJ. You have to preview the endnotes separately just like you have to print a separate endnote report when printing directly from UFT.
for FG to RTF, printed everything, but italics messed up.
Paul: Same results
for FG to Preview, results same as version 1.
Paul: Same results
for FJ to RTF, results same as version 1.
for FJ to Preview, results same as version 1.
Basically, I'm getting the same results as you except the 2nd paragraph is not petering out in the FJ to RTF.
I have a suggestion. I would italize and bold what you want with the start and ending codes for both. Then italize the rest of the paragraph, do not include the citation within the italics.Then do the same with the second paragraph. In other words when you end the bold also end the italics and then restart the italics and do not continue a formatting code across paragraphs.This seems to give better overall results with the excepting of the Preview window where the bold portion does not show as italics but the rest of the paragraph does.You just have to remember when looking at the Preview that the Bold portion doesn't show the italics, but it prints correctly to RTF.
I seem to recall, and this is going way back many versions, that I reported a problem with using two formatting codes on text and that the response was a problem with the internal editor that UFT uses where it fails to recognize more than one formatting code for a string of text.I won't swear on it, my memory being what it is nowadays.
Here is the way I would suggest you format those paragraphs:
[IT:[BO:LONG ON BOSTON POLICE FORCE:BO]:IT] [IT:Former Deputy Superintendent James M. Coulter of the Boston police department, who throughout his thirty-four years...Curtis. He did evening duty until the strike situation was cleared, and he then retired again to his farm.:IT][CI:660:?3:CI]
[IT:[BO:EX-DEPUTY SUPT COULTER AT REST Funeral in Newton of Old Boston Police Official:BO]:IT] [IT:One of the "gentlemen of the old school" among policemen is brought to mind by the comments occasioned by the news of the death...James M. Coulter, for a time after his treatment :IT](should be [IT:retirement:IT]) [IT:, lived in Natick, but his last days were passed on his farm in Canada. He was born in Dublin, Ire, Aug 23, 1843,...Commissioner Curtis. He did evening duty until the strike situation was clarified, when he retired again to his farm.:IT][CI:661:?3:CI]
Note: My citation numbers are different as, of course, I didn't have you citations in my data so I just attached some citations of my own.
