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.
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.
Unfortunately...now 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.
Even if you know markdown really well, the editing facilities in Description field are terrible:
What is needed is a simple text field that accepts markdown (which is already the current state of the feature) but which can evolve into a fully fledged document (bit like Google docs) that can be edited using a rich text editor (even if the text is stored in Markdown in the background) and which shows a table of contents (this can be deduced from H1-H6 in markdown) to the left of the editing/rendered text area for easy navigation.
As things stand, I am on the verge of switching to a competitor after having used Trello for years because this and other problems keep getting in the way and even after paying upwards of $12/mo just in the powerups (plus Trello Gold subscription), I can't get basic, reasonable features that should be provided out of the box.
