    Yes, it is possible.

    You can use the Long text field and use the Rich text editor option as shown below:

    The insertion of HTML tags is not supported on forms.

    Please explain which data with HTML tag are you referring to? Are you referring to this with reference to any form?

    If yes, please provide us the form URL and also the section that you are referring to.

    Hello

    My use case is:

    1. The user submit a form with a long text field in "rich text" (with bold, italic, line break etc)
    2. I collect the data (xls/csv) and push it in my database

    the thing is that i can see the information is well collected

    Unfortunately, the formatting shown on your Form submission page will not be the same when you export it into Excel or CSV.

    You will need to format it separately after downloading it in excel.
