Is it possible to format the text.
For example the question in bold text and the answer in a different color. Also have answers all tabbed to line up vertically.

Is there not a more time efficient way of doing this? If not then why was this changed?

This method doesn't actual generates a plain text email. first the platform just adds html tags, and the eventual email delivered reorganizing the content into a table format. I am attempting to integration submission with a third party platform that requires delivery of email in plain text. Can you confirm that this is not possible?
