The Atlassian Community can help you and your team get more value out of Atlassian products and practices.
We’re excited to introduce a new editing toolbar inside of Trello, to provide richer and more intuitive formatting options for card and board descriptions. This new editor gives you more control of how your content looks and allows you to preview it before saving. And if you use other Atlassian products, it should feel very familiar!
Note: The new editing toolbar is being rolled out slowly; this may not be your experience quite yet! To opt in sooner, visit https://trello.com/my/labs and toggle on ‘WYSIWYG Editing.'
With the new editing toolbar in Trello you can easily:
Select varying header font sizes
Format your text with bold, italics, strikethrough, and code snippets
Create bulleted or numbered lists
Mention your teammates to collaborate
Make your descriptions pop with emoji
You can quickly insert all these options via keyboard by typing '/' and selecting from the list.
If you loved using Markdown to format your descriptions, fear not—you still can! The new Editor in Trello introduces a friendlier UI for more intuitive formatting, but Markdown is still supported. Simply enter the formatting you want in Markdown, and the new Editor will convert the Markdown to formatted text as you type.
Please note that we've updated the Markdown for headers. To display a header, you will need to include a space after the # symbol.
We know that Trello is the hub for where your team’s work gets done. The new editing experience provides even more options for visually displaying work from all your team’s tools. Paste any link into the card description and choose how you want to display it—whether that’s simply a URL, the default Smartlink inline view, or as a card view, which offers a small preview of the content as well as additional information about the link.
To toggle between all these display options, click on the link while in Edit mode, and select from the dropdown list.
By default, any URL you paste into the card description will convert into an inline link, as shown above. If you'd like to change that—for example, if you always want to display the URL—you can do that by changing your link preferences for your account:
Select your avatar from the top-right menu, then go to Manage account.
From the top menu, select Link preferences.
From there, you can choose a new default display method for all links, or you can customize it by selecting different options for different types of links.
Spacing options: Hitting ‘Enter’ in the new Editor creates a new paragraph, so there’s some extra spacing. If you’re just looking for a line break, hold ‘Shift’ before pressing ‘Enter.’
Ways to paste into Trello: If you are looking to paste text into Trello to match the current format in your card description, right-click and select Paste and Match Style. If you want to preserve the original formatting from where you pulled the text, right-click and select Paste.
Remember, this may not be your editing experience quite yet, as we’re rolling it out gradually. If you want the experience sooner, you can opt in by going to https://trello.com/my/labs and toggling on ‘WYSIWYG Editing.'
Note: The new editor for Trello is currently only available on the Web and Desktop, not mobile.
