Rich text in forms
All the paragraph styles and text formatting with rich text is also available on long text field with rich text enabled on forms. At this time, rich text can only be used in the long text field when someone is submitting the form (not within the form headers or help text).
On the mobile version, the menus for these appear below the text. If the screen is narrow, not all the options will appear at once, but scrolling on the menus will bring the other options into view.
