Formatting text inside the text area field with conditional logicAsked by anna1989 on April 27, 2015 at 11:11 PM
Unfortunately, HTML tags like <br/> will not display properly in the textarea field, this is because it is being read as plain text. Same goes with other formatting or styling tags like <b>, <i> and the likes.
I will forward a feature request for this functionality, I believe it's a good addition to let users add formatting tags to text area field with conditional logic. Unfortunately, I'm unable to provide exact date to when this will be implemented or even be considered, but rest assure that our developers will be aware of this request.
Thankyou so much for your responce, as a sugestion with you putting this idea forward, could you add either bullet points or numbering as a handy tool.
I believe once the HTML tags are allowed to be added through the conditions, the bullet points/numbering will also be automatically taken care of. Isn't it?
My colleague have already sent the feature request to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.
