WYSIWYG Editor for Trello Cards

Is there a plug-in or powerup available for Trello, so I can use an HTML WYSIWYG type editor to format my cards? I want to do things like bold, create lists, link to items, etc...

No idea why Trello doesn't have the most basic text formatting one would expect.  Trello makes things incredible simple and fast--forcing users to stop and add ** before and ** after their words, or other silly markdown sets up a brickwall on the productivity highway.

Maybe it's there way of getting people to buy Jira?  I'm moving from Jira to Trello and am pulling my hair out at this right now.  What an enormous waste of time to use markdown.  

+1 to adding a WYSIWYG editor to Trello. It saves time and reaches a broader audience.

Hi Evan,

This page reviews how to format your Trello cards. 

Hope this is what you were looking for.



Thanks. Is there a power up or plug in that enables an editor so I don’t have to use Markdown?

Haven't used it personally but did a search and found this - Comment Editor.

Let me know if it does the trick.

Can you put this in as a feature request? That Comment Editor plugin only works on already-created comments. I’m looking for a way for non-technical team members to edit and format card descriptions using a wysiwyg editor without having to use markdown.

Google led me to this thread b/c I couldn't believe Trello still didn't have a markdown wysiwyg.  Please add this, I would pay for it.

Hi, I know I'm getting banned for this but I consider it a noble sacrifice to get the point across.






No offense,
