Support Hidden styles in templates
If a Document Template has hidden styles defined, then the generated document (.docx) file should generate the document with those styles hidden.
One of our clients that generates their documents from our system using Windward, has very clearly defined corporate styles and an expectations that all of their staff will only use those styles in Word Documents to ensure that they are providing a united, consistent front for their customers.
The templates have styles defined based on their corporate style guide. When a document is generated, the hidden styles are displayed again, which means that our customer has stopped using our system because they are concerned that their users will use unapproved styles and the document is a large part of their business process.
We had tried to work around this limitation by removing the hidden styles from the document however Microsoft Word does not allow default styles to be removed.
We are about to work around this limitation by creating the word document in the system without using Windward to generate it, which means that a lot of the efficiency that our product provides in terms of eliminating double handling of data is no longer realised.
Please consider scheduling this feature request as soon as possible.
