Word Online (Business) Connector, Set Content Control Value instead of Placeholder text

When using the the Word Online (Business) Connector's 'Populate a Microsoft Word template' function it poputales the Content Controls by setting the placeholder text of the content control instead of the actual value of the content control.
Please change the behaviour to (also) set the actual value of the Content Control. So that all features of the content control can be used, such as using a style to format the text, editing the content instead of only being able to replace the whole content (of the placeholder text) when typing in the control afterwards and using XML mapping.

 

That would make this connector really awesome.

We are not able to  edit the text of the content control after it is populated via flow. Is it due to the limitation that it poputales the Content Controls by setting the placeholder text of the content control?

Yes, because it only sets the placeholder text you can't edit the text. When you start typing it will always remove the already present text.
