Service Pack 2 for TX Text Control .NET X8 doesn't include only bug fixes and the Visual Studio 2012 Compatibility Pack. It comes with a new version of the MailMerge/Reporting template designer TX Words with an updated Mailings ribbon tab.
The Merge Block menu actions are separated out from the merge fields. You can easily insert merge blocks from existing data tables or you can add custom blocks by specifying a name.

This repeating block is also included in the Preview functionality now. Click on Preview Merge Fields and see how the repeating block looks like:
