Gerd Huebner implemented an improvement in the Word report development for Dynamics NAV 2016. He called it "Wordlayout+" and explains it in his blog.

These improvements are:

- Nested Groups (Customer -> SalesHeader -> SalesLines, e. g.)
- Improved image handling (empty image is displayed as empyt, image size is retained)
- Manual line breaks within plain text controls (“Allow multiple paragraphs” works now)
- Repeating Sections around arbitrary paragraphs, table rows or even whole tables (standard NAV works only for one table row)
- Formatted output for Rich Text Controls works now
- Optionally blank zero values

The work (.dll) is public at http://mibuso.com/downloads/wordlayout.

I think it would be a good idea to implement this officially in BC (SaaS and OnPrem) to make reporting faster and be able to do things in Word report development that currently it is not possible.

Think about it ;)
