Field Formatting


#1

Here’s another take on field formatting. We’d really like full text formatting and styles in our records, but as a minimalist gesture, it would be great if Airtable was more consistent about highlighting non-editable text in record displays. Linked record names are displayed with a blue background and can be clicked, but data in lookup fields, formulas and rollups are plain text. It’s hard to tell which fields can be edited and which cannot. It would make lots of sense if referenced non-editable data was formatted with a different color background (yellow) and also linked to the source record. Formula results should also have a distinct formatting style (a different cell border?) to remind users that those fields are non-editable.
