I would love to see basic text formatting options for the long text field. At a minimum: bold and italic formatting would be a huge help.
I would like to use long text fields to store short bios for writers. But without the ability to have italic formatting, I can’t properly format the titles of their books.
The markdown formatting tools available in this Airtable community message editor would be perfect.
looks like you’ve got a lot of requests for this.
I’m a product manager trying to integrate Airtable as a hub for a lot of different toolsets using webhooks / api / zapier. If airtable had a field type that provided markdown store and preview, it’d be mighty fine. I already dump markdown into text fields anyway, shame I can’t hang around in your service to deal with that markdown I use in a plethora of other services. Guess I’ll take my eyeball time elsewhere. #Shutupandtakemyeyeballtime
Funny, the text field I’m replying to this in, provided by airtable, has markdown support.
kidding aside, I love and appreciate your service. Markdown support in text fields would keep me on your product longer, and let me use it for more things.
+1 markdown support!!!
Absolutely…one of the main reasons not using Airtable as my Crm right now…
Also the wasted space on right side for activity feed and commenting is a shame…
That space should be at least optional to remove so more room for notes, and details
I’d like to support this too – it would be really helpful for my primary use.
Markdown Support Please!!!
This would be huge. I use Airtable for agile product planning and being able to paste code and longer user stories into this field would be a game changer.
+1 for Markdown, HTML, or better, same as notion.so provide !
This is important to me. I miss having rich text options for cards in Trello. I’d be very happy if this was added.
This is very important to me as well! Is it on the roadmap?
+1! I’m trying to use Airtable as a repository for customer / product feedback - simple formatting would go a long way :slightly_smiling_face:
Can’t you just mirror Slack’s formatting options? XY for bold, XY for ital, etc.? For us, bold and italics, combined with line-breaks via \n would meet 905 of user needs.
