Ask a Microsoft Word Question> re VBA custom dialog box

Customer Question

Is is possible to format text typed into a textbox on a custom dialog box in Word 2010 i.e. if there was a Notes field, could you apply Bold, Italic etc. to parts of the text and retain that format when the user clicks OK.  The resulting text is being inserted into a document property within the Word doc.  If the custom dialog box is run again, it retrieves the info from the document property back into the text box, so it also needs to retain the formatting and bring that back too.  Thanks.
