I just found the change that made this happen - we definitely changed this, as part of a fix. Previously, the current behavior (which is correct, based on the markdown spec), was only applied to comments.

The fix that was sent out yesterday, meant that this is now also the case for descriptions, which is why your existing cards have changed formatting.

Sorry this broke your card formatting! Going to ping the team and make them aware this happened.

YAY!!!  And there was much rejoicing! Thanks @Felix

Hey @Tom Grant - what specifically is not working for you?

I am seeing the same

Markdown:

**Test:** Test
---
**Line 1** Test
---
**Date Line 2:** 5/17/21 - M ST
---
**Date of Line 3:** `Test - M ST`
---
**Total Cost** test
---
** Completed** test
---
**Goal:** test
---
**Displayed:** test
---
**Case Number** test
---
**Schedule Change** test

 

Result on Card:

Test: Test

Line 1 Test

Date Line 2: 5/17/21 - M ST

Date of Line 3: Test - M ST

Total Cost test

Completed test

Goal: test

Displayed: test

Case Number test

I work with Dave, so I used his example several of us are seeing this, I have tested it in Google Chrome, Safari, and Brave browsers.  All with same results.  However, I do use the Apple Trello App and it appears as expected.

**Test:** Test

**Line 1** Test
---
**Date Line 2:** 5/17/21 - M ST
---
**Date of Line 3:** `Test - M ST`
---
**Total Cost** test
---
** Completed** test
---
**Goal:** test
---
**Displayed:** test
---
**Case Number** test
---
**Schedule Change** test

 

Result Should be the below.

 

Test: Test


Line 1 Test


Date Line 2: 5/17/21 - M ST


Date of Line 3: Test - M ST


Total Cost test


Completed test

Thanks @Tom Grant and @Dave Manoa - gonna look into this

I can't immediately see any change to our markdown implementation in a while.

The example you posted renders correctly, because the dashes underneath a line signify a "Heading 2" in markdown.

If you want the horizontal rule, you'll need to break up the lines with newlines, like:

 

**Test:** Test

---

**Line 1** Test

---

**Date Line 2:** 5/17/21 - M ST

What I find odd is that all cards across all my boards just started to do this last night.  So all old cards and all new cards all the way back for several years are affected.  Which wasn't that way at 3pm MT time but was at 6pm MT.   That doesn't sound like it is a return problem.

Hey @Dave Manoa - that's odd - could you raise a support ticket at trello.com/contact and just reference this thread? Will mean we can take a look at your boards in some more detail (with your permission) to figure out what's going on.

@Felix  Unfortunately I can't share the board do to privacy and the nature of our job.  :-(
