Community Digest: New Note component, Thrive series for Experts

Welcome back to Monday! :raised_hands:

Here’s a rundown of what’s been happening at Glide over the last week.

Preview: Note component :memo:

The new Note component lets you add a visual WYSIWYG text editor to your apps. It includes a rich set of formatting options for headings, lists, and more. Note data is stored in a text column using markdown.

Learn more about the new Note component in our docs.

Shipped: New Glide features & bug fixes :ship:


  • More control over which of your users can access Add Comment.


  • Empty inline comments component taking up too much space.
  • Forcing row owners into owned rows from the Data Editor. Before, if you added a new row into a table with row owners but didn’t set the row owner, Glide set the “view as” user into all row columns.
  • Choice component not showing options. In some instances, the choice component was not showing if the options table was different than the current table.

That’s it for today. Have a great week! :coffee:


Thanks for the shoutout @NoCodeAndy !!

Is it possible to add the option to center wording in the notes component?

Sounds like something you should post in Feature Requests ! :slight_smile:

I just tried this component, see image below:


But it just shows up as a text field and none of the markdown functions are appearing. Did I miss something?

If you try to edit the text inside of it, it should show the formatting options.

Is the component inside of a container by chance?

When i edited, nothing appeared and yes, it’s inside a container.

Try taking it out of the container.

No, it still doesn’t work after taking it out of the container

Hmmm, I know in the past I’ve seen it intermittently work correctly based on if it was in a container, or in mobile view, or some other reason. Hard to say if it’s still a bug. I’ll have to check later, but I feel like it’s better writing better than when it was originally released. I haven’t used it much yet.

Have you written any text inside the component?


This is within the app i want to implement and have shown earlier.

it worked in another app of mine, but only on dekstop view:
