Custom fields not showing on front of card

I used to have a checkbox in the custom field settings for showing a custom field on the front of the card. Now I can add custom fields but they are only seen on the back of the card.   I see that there have been some changes to custom fields recently; wondering if this is expected behavior.

Hi Jeff,


Hm, that doesn't sound right. Our recent update to Custom Fields did remove that option checkbox, but that means all Custom fields will show on the front of the card as well as the back of the card.


Perhaps you could reach out to with an example of where you're not seeing it? That might help us find out what's happening!

Ah, well no need. An obvious test to filter out us idiots using the product ;) I wasn't aware you had to actually use the custom fields for them to show up. My bad.
