Italic and bold text from database

Hi Appgyver,

I have some text in Italic within plain text coming from my database, but it is not showing up as italic in the text field on the app, nor in the Rich Text box I got from the marketplace. Is there a way around this?

Hi! What format is the italic coming in? It needs to be either markup or html formatted for Rich Text / HTML renderer to work :slight_smile:

italic letters must be surrounded with * (italic = * italic *)
bold letter must be surrounded with ** (bold = ** bold **))


@JOHN_WORSHAM, thank you so much John that worked! :grinning: Much appreciated.

@JOHN_WORSHAM is there an option for strike through?

Yes there is
~~ text ~~ (but with no spaces before or after tilde characters)
