Remove HTML tags from Rich text field in an edit form

I created a form using PowerApps to submit/edit SharePoint data, and everything is working fine, except a couple a couple of Rich Text fields. The fields are showing HTML tags all over the place. The same happened when I created the display for, but all I needed to do was to convert the field to HTML text, but I'm not sure how to handle this in an Edit form.

To handle HTML text in an edit form, the easiest solution would be to change the control type of your field to 'edit rich text'.

Thanks @PG_WorXz10 . I can't convert to plain text. That SharePoint column will contain among other thing, tables, etc.. It needs to be Rich Text.

Hi @emfuentes27 ,

 

If not tried earlier can you please try to map the this column to HTML text in PowerApps ?
