Did card lay-out for custom fields change?


We are working with custom fields to organise our cards, however, since this morning the lay-out seems to have changed.

A/ Description is now above the custom fields

B/ The boxes do not automatically adjust to size.

Is this something we accidentally changed in our settings (and can change back)?

Or is this a global change that cannot be undone?

For our purposes, the new lay-out is actually a step backwards.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Katrien,


Yes, we did recently make those changes, for a variety of reasons, but primarily to keep Custom Fields organized in their own dedicated space, just like every other card element, but I'll let the team know you preferred the old style!

Hi Michael! Thanks for your reply!

It's mostly inconvenient that if the free text in the custom field is longer than the box, you cannot see the whole text, not even when you click on it. For hyperlinks that's not an issue, but if the free text box contains plain text, it does not really work...
