Where do the card setting button on column went?

I am pretty sure there was a "triple-dot" button or something to set a card's label and such is present at the bottom right corner of a column when you are adding a card, where it went?

Hi @Muammar Ghadafi Bin Badrul Hisham,

Thanks for your keen eye and your question. Trello has recently decided to remove the Card Composer Options feature. The Card Composer Options feature allowed people to add members and labels to cards before they were created. While this feature was certainly useful for some users, it also represented pretty significant technical complexity and maintenance effort that didn't match up with how much it was being used.

By removing the Card Composer Options feature, we are streamlining card creation and laying the foundation for better card creation improvements in the future. There are still a few ways to use shortcuts to add members and labels to cards that we recommend:

1. You can use the 1-0 keys or the L key to apply labels to a card while hovering over it in the board view, or while a card is open.

2. The M key will let you add members to a card, also while hovering in the board view, or while the card is open. If you'd like to add yourself, the spacebar key does this.

3, When creating a new card, type the card title then press Shift+Enter to create it (instead of Enter by itself). It will create and open the card at the same time. This makes the L and M shortcuts a bit more accessible!

Last, it may be worth having a look at our Automation tool to see if any of your regular label or member workflows could potentially be done automatically: https://trello.com/guide/automate-anything

I recognize that's not entirely ideal, but hopefully these options give you a few different ways to speed up your workflows in Trello without those Card Composer Options.

Hi @Muammar Ghadafi Bin Badrul Hisham ,

Are you referring to the pencil icon? If you hover over the white box with your mouse, you should see it.

I am aware that it already had that pencil icon, but that icon only appears "after" the card is created, not while we are still typing out the contents.

I am referring to the button with the "same" functionality as the pencil icon but in the red square position above.
