Can I add a custom multi-line field in next gen + jira software + cloud?

I don't see text (multi-line) as an option in my project. I have a next gen software project for jira cloud. Any workarounds for this limitation? I want to include a field for a public facing summary. short text is too short.

Hi @Kimberly Cakebread ,

Welcome to the Atlassian community!

Currently, Jira offers to style for short text entry using a single-line text box.

I found these existing open requests with the Atlassian team for the same issue(multi-line option not available)

For receiving more updates, add yourself as a watcher and vote for issues.

Please see the page Available custom fields for next-gen projects for your reference.

Please also see the page on  How to Customize an issue's fields in next-gen projects.

I hope the information helps :)
