Multi-line textbox ends up with <DIV> text in it

I created a simple powerapps form for a test sharepoint list. The list includes a multi-line text box. But the textbox always ends up with some <div class=..." text displayed in it. Like this....

There is also the issue of the "No item to display" stuff appearing there.

 

I've tried in both IE and Chrome.

 

Any suggestions for a workaround?

Re: Multi-line textbox ends up with <DIV> text in it

Hi @AndyParrott,

 

This issue should be caused by the Rich Text for the Multi-line field in SharePoint list.

You may take a try to switch the Label control into an HTML text control, which could handle the Rich Text format.

Adding the control reference:

Also there is a similar thread for your reference:

I am sure you have found a solution by now , i am replying in case someone else have the same issue . What fixed it for me was changing the type of text in n SharePoint column setting to Plain text instead of rich text or Enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks.

Thank you!  I have searched many places to find the 'simple answer' to this.  

I went to my SP site, changed the field to PLAIN TEXT!  Worked like a charm.

I did not need to do anything to the form, it just fixed the issue.
