Rich Text Editor Not displaying text input section

Hi, 

Everytime I add Rich text editor control on the New Form and publish to use that it just display the top bar of the editor but not the text input section. I try to set custom height width, auto height width but nothing is working, one thing that I noticed is I can click on the Expand Toolbar end of the rich text control bar and when I Collpase Toolbar it start displaying small input text section. 

In the Edit form it work fine, load the data fine in the rich text field, only in the New form I have this issue.

 

Thanks,

-Sal

Hi @Anonymous, this is a known issue. The fix will be deployed within the next 2 weeks.

If you need a workaround in the meantime, try re-setting the desired height of the control when the screen becomes visible.

Set RichTextEditor.Height=TempVariable

In the screen with the editor, set Screen.OnVisible=Set(TempVariable, 10);Set(TempVariable, desiredValue)

I will try this workaround, but it doesn't seem this fix was applied in the next two weeks - this is September, 2021, and the problem is still there. Hello, Microsoft? Have you abandoned the Power Platform? Moved on to something else?...

I am also experiencing this issue with my PowerApp that is a custom form for SharePoint editing. the text input on Rich Text Editor sometimes does not show unless you refresh and will only show consistently when on the direct link to edit a specific SharePoint list item, rather than the edit pane that pops in from the right side.

 

The above workaround did not work.

Hello,

I am having the same issue, and the workaround does not work. Any other solution?

Update: the workaround does work, but the thing was that the event "OnVisible" does not run every time I open the form. I put the TempVariable update action at "OnEdit" and "OnView" of the SharePointIntegration object, and that worked. Is this the expected behavior? When is supposed to run the OnVisible event?

This is the last day of January, 2022, and this problem still exists. The workaround still doesn't fix the issue, and we shouldn't have to add workarounds for very basic issues like this. Maybe we should all use MEAN stack if Microsoft no longer supports PowerApps. I have never worked with such a buggy software before in 20+ years of IT.

 

Any idea what I should tell clients that rely on rich-text editors, and they have no way of editing them?

I am also seeing this problem.  Workaround seems to work but not an ideal solution.  Is this a problem with Edge graphics rendering?
