Can you provide more details about how you are trying to that? How your app is setup or an overview of what is the goal of it?

Hi @dsab81 ,

Do you want to insert a Table into the Rich Text Editor control?

Do you want to paste a picture into the Rich Text Editor control?

 

Currently, within Power Apps, if you want to insert a Table into the Rich Text Editor control, or paste a picture into the Rich Text Editor control, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

As an alternative solution, I think the Html Text control could achieve your needs. You could write HTML code inside the Html Text control to organize your Table, you could also embed a picture inside the HTML Text control.

 

If you still have some issue with this issue, please feel free to contact me in Teams.

Hi v-xida-msft,

 

Can you please share if there is any update regarding the Rich Text Editor support for Images and Tables.

 

Rich Text editor in model driven apps seem to support images and tables, but not Canvas apps and SharePoint Connected apps.

Thanks

I also have the same problem. 

The Rich text field is not very user friendly. 

We want to add images, but we have to past in a link, and we cannot directly upload images via the rich text editor. Except if we go into classic experience. this is very cumbersome. 

 

Hoping for a quick fix!
