Text and table formatting

I am making checklists on airtable so I need to add a bold heading in line item and then its factors

e.g

Content Check
Proofread content
Check word count

etc

I hope there are basic “left-align” “right-align” “center-align” for “Single line text”

I ditto everything here 1000 times. Airtable is an awesome spreadsheet but it’s missing so much key spreadsheet functionality, centre/right/left align, coloured text, coloured cells…these are small things but they make a huge visual difference…I can’t stress how much a difference these would make.

I can’t believe the ability for basic formatting has been requested for 5 years…by a huge number of clients and still not even a date has been discussed.

Airtable, please, please…give us the ability to display our info, the way we want to see our info. (left/right/middle aligned, coloured cells, borders, bold, italics are SUPER important to making airtable a visual masterpeice).

“Is this real life?!” I assumed Airtable would have this feature…surprised to see it’s still being requested?!

Also, not sure if anyone has called this out yet, but being able to display tags within a cell would be helpful. For example: Ability to display character count of contents within each cell, by column. Defining Title Tag; ALT text; Meta Description come to mind where this would be useful.

Hi Katherine,

Could you find some specifics in this thread? :wink:

When are we going to see them in AirTable?

I’ve been using Airtable less than a month really love it; however, I too am shocked that the ability to change the font in tables doesn’t exist. Is there any workaround at all? The text size is an issue. Anytime in the near future?

I’m in also desperate need of formatting features for column headers!!!
bold, ital, alignment (L, R, or center), color…
and the ability to group (gather!) columns under header so it’s easy to see which subheaders are read together in a group.

It would also be wonderful in long test fields to be able to UNDERLINE text.

Ditto. AT definitely needs more formatting options.

Airtable is amazing except it lacks basic formatting options
