Rich Text Editor Text Not Showing in SharePoint List

I had a multiline text field. In the PowerApp list form I removed the regular field and added a Rich Text Editor Field and bound it to the field. When I save the form the data in the field does't always show in the SharePoint list. However, as soon as I filter that field it will start showing. If I export the list it shows in Excel and when I open the form it also shows. 


See attached images. This has to be a bug! Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Rich Text Editor Text Not Showing in SharePoint List

Hi @PoohBear,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you custom a form within your SP list using PowerApps?

Further, which browser do you used to custom the form for your SP list?

I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:7.JPG

Please check the attached GIF screenshot for more details:


Please check if you have set the Update proeprty of the Action Description Data card to following:

RichTextEditor1.HtmlText   /* <-- RichTextEditor1 represents the Rich Text Editor control within your Edit form */

If the issue still exists, please consider take a try to clear cache of your browser and remove the custom form from your SP list, then re-create a new one for it, check if the issue is solved.


Best regards,
