How can I display labels on cards in list

I've been using labels without any trouble. I could see them on cards in lists. Clicking on the label toggled text on and off. But I've done something that caused none of my labels to be displayed on cards in lists.

I can still see and set labels when I view a full card, but in lists themselves, there is no sign of them.

Here's a label on a card:


Here's the card in a list:


No sign of the label, with or without text.

What do I need to do to display the labels again?

I found the answer in another thread. Semi-colon key now toggles label visibility.

Interesting- when I use the semi-colon key on my board it toggles the label text visibility, meaning it still shows the color/presence of a label.


Your screen shot doesn't have any sign with or without text. Did you figure out something else?

By the way, thanks for taking the time to post to resolve!

Same here with the semi-colon toggling text on/off. I love seeing labels too!

I haven't ran into issues with seeing my labels on the card list. I'm glad it was temporary for you!
