Formatting larger blocks of text within a task note

D

Hi,

I was wondering if marking larger blocks than one line of text, is going to be possible eventually, as I've been tracking this for a while now, and it seems to not get attention from users or the team.

I got this note in a task:

Check why the...
Make a request to...
Make a request to...

If I try to mark it as either italic or bold, it doesn't seem to work, as it spans across multiple lines, so I just get the raw this:

!! Check why the...
Make a request to...
Make a request to... !!

or:

__ Check why the...
Make a request to...
Make a request to... __

This is an issue only with multiple lines formatting, it works perfectly well with single lines, unfortunately with longer notes it's very time consuming to mark lines in separate.

Thanks,
Dan.

Why is that considered to be a "feature request" rather than a bug?

Hi Dan,

I have consulted our developers about this and got confirmation that this is for the Votebox. Typically, bugs are behaviours that does not work as intended. This, however, is feature that has not been implemented yet. We'll look into adding this in the future.

I see, I'd think that marking text shouldn't be limited to single lines as a default behavior, but ok, I'll make a feature request.

Thank you for looking into this.

Regards,
Dan.
