@ben friedman - hi Ben! This currently isn't possible, and there's no workaround that I'm aware of. I'd consider adding a help prompt to your Description field to let customers know they can manually add markdown (asterisks for bold, for example).

There's an open suggestion to get a markdown editor for customers, you can vote on it here: JSDCLOUD-9072

thanks @Dave Liao  do you also know if this isnt supported by add-ons?
