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?

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,

Hi @PoohBear thanks for posting in the community and I'm sorry to hear about this issue. Are you still experiencing it? Also please advise if the above reply from our CST was helpful. 



Kris, I love how you casually say "re-create the new PowerApps form" if something breaks. I have been using PowerApps for two full years now, and I have done some extremely complex forms, including some really long ones. I have never done a PowerApps form with just 2-3 values with no logic. My guess is PowerApps isn't really meant for complex solutions.

This post did end up bring a bug if I recall. However, since this post I build SharePoint list forms completely different because the out of the box PA forms are terrible to work with. I insert a custom card, add all controls, then bind them to the data fields. I use Patch rather than submit form. Building forms this way allows me to copy the form and paste into new list forms if I need to. I build some very complex forms and this platform can handle anything you throw at it. Shane Young has a video if you are interested in building forms this way. I highly suggest his YouTube channel if you do not subscribe already.
