Rich text control for populating a word template

The ability to populate a word template while maintaining line breaks would be a huge quality of life improvement. I believe the rich-text control in word support would fix this issue. For the task I'm working on I need text to hold the formatting from a sharepoint list with line breaks, bullets, and numbering. The plain text control can get the template populated but requires either cleanup or other manipulation prior to pull in only one line at a time.

We'd like to be able to take content entered into a Rich Text Editor control in a PowerApp and populate a Word template and preserve formatting (bullets, colors, etc.).

This would be a great win if the rich text was working to be able to output the rich text into a document without jumping through hoops to get the original data format.

There's four seperate requests from 2019 for adding Rich Text Control to the word connector and no response from the Power Automate team.  It's almost ironic that I have Rich Text support here and not in the Premium Word Connector.

Dear @Mari and all Microsoft Employees,  

 

Would be a great feature if it could be brought in. Populating a word Document with all field types readily available in the document library be used.

What I feel is the data type in the Document library itself doesn't support rich text and that could be issue that the fields values are returning as plain text in Word. Can't this feature be brought in as similar to SharePoint list. It's been a while we are looking forward for this feature to get enabled. Also the Hyperlink Field Type as well
