Using regional spelling principles in a document


In The Netherlands it is common that  a surname of a person consists of 2 parts. A middle name before the last name . 

Like: de Vries, van Vliet, de Ridder , van der Vlist,etc.. When creating a formal quote/proposal you have to use the capitals in the name of a person other in the salutation line (B) than in the address header line (A). Sample:

Organisation name
A=> Atttn. Bert de Vries    
Mainstreet 12

=>B  Dear Mister De Vries,   


Question:  Does anyone have a practical solution how to create a template using the new Beta Document feature in which:

- the surname is used correctly in both lines A and B

- the address header is split correctly into the several address lines ?

I could not find the standard MS Word features which are used normally when creating Dutch Templates.

    Hi @Bart Sturkenboom 

    I don't know of a current workaround but definitely understand your pain considering my own name ;) 

    I've passed it on to our teams and added a "feedback" tag to your post.
