I created an org chart linked to a data source, and I'm using a custom formula to display each person's position and name in a basic rectangle shape. I would like to make the position bold, but not the name. I tried <b>text</b> but it didn't accept it. Is there a way to apply formatting in a custom formula?

This is the current formula:
=Prop.Title&CHAR(10)&CHAR(10)&Prop.DisplayName

The end result would be something like this:

----------------

    @Ben ,

    The result of the current formula shown as a whole, and we could not just select the part of it.

    I am afraid you need to split the original custom formula into 2 formulas. Then you may just bold the result of position.
