It would be great to be able to change certain text within a cell. I have a column that is "material list" and the information in that cell is sometimes updated. I would like to be able to either highlight or change to BOLD text the new information added to that cell.
It would be great if Smartsheet let you selectively strikethrough a piece of information in a cell, versus the entire cell. If Excel can do it, certainly Smartsheet should be able to!
I am not sure if there is another request or mention of this elsewhere but this suggestion is not only extremely relevant to text in cells but also in the comments!! Rich text formatting would be extremely helpful both in cells and in comments as there are no other real tools for note-taking in Smartsheet.
I know this request is on the roadmap, glad to hear it and looking forward to what comes of it!
Would love to have the option to have formatting within the text boxes (option for bullets/lists/etc). This would help especially in the forms for our group.
Is there a way we can make some of the text in a cell bold or italic versus making the whole cell bold? Attaching an example below for your reference:
There is not a way, yet. That's part of this ask. 😊
I'm just here to vote yes on rich text formatting in text fields. Is there anyone that wouldn't like to have rich text formatting for text fields? 😃
I had this ability in Airtable and not having it now is definitely limiting for my team of project/product managers.
Yes, this would be a huge improvement! Eventually being able to report, filter, etc on rich text would be great, but at this time even just having the ability to view rich text in my sheet would help tremendously!
For instance: the cell on the right is concatenated from three different cells, including the on the left, but you can see that the bold didn't transfer in the concatenation. It is not as easy to read without the bold
yes please we need this feature. I need e.g.; to be able to bold only one word in the cell. but the whole cell getting bolded.
I'm looking to hyperlink part of the text in a cell, like a specific word of the description details of a grant or product. Currently, I'm only able to hyperlink all text in the cell.

To add to this list would be the option to include/use the NEW ADDITIONAL FONTS as well that were recently added to the dashboards in order for all the dashboards/sheets/reports that get printed (some people do still do this lol) to be universal across the boards.

Trello has recently added some basic text formatting tools that we find extremely useful. As noted by previous comments here, it would be ideal to have a text field where we could have Bolded, Italic, Bulleted/Numbered lists. Perhaps in a menu that would be similar to the attached here?
Adding my voice to this ask.
We would like to use Smartsheet to track written copy content for our projects, but the inability to have different formats of text within cells is a huge limiting factor.
We would like to put all text for a topic in a single cell. This includes titles, paragraphs, quotes, key words, etc. and requires at minimum the support of selective bold, italics, bold italics, bullet points and numbered lists. Support for multiple font sizes and selective font colour would also be an asset. We would be able to copy the text directly out of the cell and paste into another program (typically Adobe Illustrator or Indesign) to create our graphic panels.
In our use case, each text piece is assigned a tracking number in a different cell of the same row to that all our content pieces can be sorted or filtered as needed. We are typically working with a hundred or so pieces of text that are each 1-2 paragraphs in length, so a database/spreadsheet system gives us the best overview and control vs. one large word processing document (cannot sort content) or multiple small word processing documents (cannot see full picture of the project). Bonus points if another cell on the same row could house all the related images/graphics that go with the content, but that is a different ask.

Although it's typical to need to run a few tests for a workflow or automation, it would be great if we had the option of previewing what the automated emails/notifications/alerts would look like for individual users with different types of permissions. A view "View As" type of feature.
When a project and tasks are set up with dependencies and durations, the project manager should be able to drive all task dates based on the project end date, not just the start date. Often mid project the delivery date needs to be changed. With Smartsheet, a project manager needs to adjust the duration of all tasks…
It would be great to be able to select a workspace as the template source folder while setting up a blueprint in Control Center. Currently you have to select a folder in a specific workspace. This change would eliminate the initial folder created at the workspace level, and would allow the end user to have all the template…
