Unfortunately this request has not received sufficient votes since it was entered for us to target it for development. Thank you for your idea, and please submit any other suggestions you have for changes we should make to the software for consideration in development.
In the near future we will be looking more at the possibility of integrating our software with signing capabilities. Once we can determine demand for this functionality, we will look into how it can be implemented that will benefit the majority of our user base. Thank you for your suggestion, and I will update again if signing is targeted for development in the future.
I just entered a feature request for this request and started the review process. I will update you once we review the request.

Hello again Jochen,
I wanted to let you know that in version 16.1.0 we released a "Condition Wizard" that helps you write conditions. This Wizard can be used for If and Switch/Case tags to help shape your conditions. I think this addresses some of your request.
Additionally, I am considering making this Wizard accessible from the Conditional Formatting Rule Manager, and also am reviewing your request for a color picker. I will update this ticket again when those requests are reviewed and weather or not they are accepted.
Thank you very much for your ideas.
We have reviewed this request and I am happy to announce that it has been accepted for development! I will update this ticket again when I have any new information on when this functionality is planned for release. Thank you for your idea, and please submit any other suggestions you have to improve our products!
Question for you: What form are these text bodies in as they are submitted to the template? Are they coming in as data, or input parameters? Also, how is your new line defined, are you utilizing the "\n" newline character in your data or something else?
Thank you for your patience in helping me understand your request.
I am trying to understand your feature request and understand how this differs from our current functionality offered by import tags. One approach I just tried on my machine was to make input parameters that correlate to each of the sub-documents in the output. The user can specify which sub-reports they want in their full report. I wrapped import tags that output sub-templates in an If tag so that the import tag only outputs the pages the user desires. This allows my report to output any combination of cover page, cover letter, report summary, and report details that the user defines. The final output report maintained the headers and footers of the master template that had the import tags, and I imagine this would be the case with other sorts of formatting as well: the master templates styles would be maintained while child report styles might get overwritten.
Does this explanation address your use case? If not, what are the characteristics of your use case that are not addressed by this approach? I want to make sure I fully understand your request as I assess this idea.
Thank you for your submission!
In addition to a workaround in the comment bellow, a feature request has been entered for this idea and has been started in our review process.

I was experimenting with the currency formats to try and solve your problem and may have found you a solution.
First I learned that outputting Out tags and using the Excel built in Accounting formats worked, but only if my Out tag type was Number. This worked for me for USD, GBP, EUR, and AED.
I also was able to use the built in Report Designer USD, GBP, and EUR formats to get my output. for AED I came up with the following custom format that seems to work: _("AED"* #,##0.00_);_("AED"* #,##0.00);_("AED"* "-"??_);_(@_)
In the Format Data dialog under Custom try entering this format and see if this fixes your issue.
I also entered a feature request for us to support the same formats supported by Excel in our formatting dialog. I have started the review process for this feature request and will update you as it is reviewed.

Thank you for reporting this idea.
I have started reviewing this request and will update the ticket again when we have a decision on weather to incorporate this request into our software.
Thank you, and please submit any other ideas you have!
Can you clarify where you would want to pass the parameter? We have discussed this internally and find 2 scenarios where this could be possible.
1) The initial data source connection, you wish to filter the JSON URL based on the dynamic parameter passed in.
2) Inside of a Windward tag IE, forEach, to return a result set based on the variable parameter passed in. IE, you wish to return a list of employees to iterate over based on the parameter you pass in.
If you can give a little more detail or an example of how you want to use this JSON service URL with Windward, it would help greatly.
