Hi -

I need to copy text from a long text field with rich text formatting turned on to other applications (e.g., Google Docs). After researching, the issue seems to be due to Airtable's underlying markdown formatting.

Is there any way to export the text or copy-paste the text into another app that understands the formatting and can display the text and export with the same formatting Airtable displays?

Thanks!

Hi @ac,

What about copying cells from the expand window?

Thanks for the suggestion, @Sho !

I've tried that with rich text with bullet points and nested bullet points, and it maintains the relative indentations when copied to Google Docs.

All the bullet points disappear in Google Docs, though, and the pasted text has a greater overall indention than the default bullet points in Google Docs.

Here are images of the original Airtable rich text in the expanded window and the rich text when pasted into a Google Doc.

Any other ideas?
