New formatting options for long text fields are now available to everyone! That means you’ll be able to use
Please note that in order to use the new formatting options, you’ll need to do the following:
There are a couple of interesting new use cases that these new features open up that you might not have expected (for example, did you know that you can now input formatted text in forms?), and you can read more about them in this blog post:
Thank you to every one of the beta participants for helping move this feature through to completion!
Hey, that toggle isn’t showing up in my bases. Any ideas why?
now that this is live, anyone in need of real, dynamic link fields (which relies on rich text), check out this show & tell:
Yep. It was the same for me. Just log out, then log back in. Then it’ll show up.
It looks like rich text formatting is a subset of markdown. If we are already storing markdown text in a long text field, is there an easy way to convert it to rich text without using a script or the API?
Is there no underline? This seems like a strange omission. Is there no underline because markdown does not have a native method of indicating underline?
In case anyone else is having this issue—you should be able to see the toggle by refreshing the page!
Hi y’all. Thanks for the feedback. The logout and log back in approach did the trick for me.
this is the best news ever in this climate! I saw it in my table as I’m editing the field type and I was like, no this can’t be real. lol Thanks AirTable!!
Many thanks @openside !
This was very useful for me using your Script after learning from it !
I second this. How can it be done? Same if I paste a text already formatted in markdown, it doesn’t convert it.
It would be great if we could center or right justify text within a cell! :slightly_smiling_face:
