Variable text and variable cut settings

I actually have 2 questions, but both related to the “variable text” option.

First one: How do I enter blank values, for example to make empty scrabble tiles in a sentence? I have already tried to insert things like this in the excel:
= “”
= ‘’
= ‘NULL’
= “” (with space)

Is there some hero out there that can help me?

the second one is a bit easier, you can combine “CSV / Merge text format” with “Cut Setting text format”? If yes, how can i achief this

thanks in advance,

Can you please explain what you are doing, where you want this in the design, and how you would like this to work? I am wanting to better understand your use case here.

You can have multiple ‘Text’ objects, set to different ‘Variable Text’ modes, then aligned as you’d like. Is this what you are asking?
