Powerup for easy formatting of text/rich text editor


I'm aware of the ways to format text in trello described in this guide.

However, I wonder if there's a powerup/extension that enable easier, more intuitive formatting. Like linking to a website via an icon of a link, or a keyboard shortcut like Ctrl+K.

Right now, we do only offer the mentioned markup to format text in Trello. I'll let our team know, that you are looking for something more visual.


Do you have any news on this subject ?

I would like to use trello but the absence of a richtext editor is really something blocking me. I don't see the non-tech teams using pure markdown.



Following.  I made the decision to have an assistant move all my tasks from Jira to Trello because I'm not in software development nor do I use Jira's Project Management lingo so Jira was too complicated. I shockingly realized that Trello uses Markdown only!  I thought this must be a mistake.  Nope.  I will now have to tell my non-techy assistant to tediously edit all my Descriptions using markdown???  As I said on another thread about this topic, this is akin to placing a brick wall on the productivity highway.  With all the lovely Trello keyboard shortcuts and ease of use, I can't figure out why there's not WYSIWYG editor for descriptions and comments. 

It's 2020.  People copy & paste from emails, from Google Docs, from web articles, from all over.  Then Trello strips all formatting.  Copy and paste with formatting please.

Sorry for the "attitude" - I'm just shocked.
