Images within Rich Text makes Text Rich

Being able to paste images into a rich text field is very cool. We do this all the time in our GitHub issues:

This is currently missing from Rich Text Fields within Airtable and kills all my hope of using it in our company :frowning: Are there any plans in the near future?

Ironically it works here in the community board :smile: So the advantages of using this feature in a productive environment must be clear.

We also want to include audio and video for bugs and user feedback.

Having to tediously create and reference attachments by their filename in a long text is currently something we don’t want to go back to and stopped us from using many other Productivity tools like Asana. Especially with filenames like “Screenshot 2021-04-06 at 16.37.06.png” generated from MacOS and not being able to just “Paste media content from the Clipboard”. Painful.

Images within Rich Text makes Text Rich

LOL. Well said.

As you are aware, it’s not accurate [for Airtable] to say that there’s a rich text field. This could not be further from the truth unless you consider a limited variant of Markdown rendering in the same class as the true nature and expectations of the term “rich text”.

Airtable kind’a created a hacky way to render Markdown and until they replace this field with a true rendering and storage medium that allows this claim to be backed up by actual features, it will forever be a hacky feature.
