New formatting options for long text fields are now available to everyone! That means you’ll be able to use

block quotes

Headers

  • ordered lists, unordered lists (bullet points), and checkboxes

bold, italic, strikethrough, and code formatting
and more!

Please note that in order to use the new formatting options, you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Open up the field customization menu
  2. Select the “Customize field type” option
  3. Pick the long text field type (if the field isn’t already long text)
  4. Switch on the toggle that says “Enable rich text formatting”
  5. Save changes (notice that the field icon changes as well)

Thank you to every one of the beta participants for helping move this feature through to completion!
