How To Underline In Trello

This blog post will demonstrate a workaround for underlining text in Trello, a user-friendly project management platform known for its visually appealing cards. While Trello offers numerous features and customizations, users may encounter difficulty with basic tasks, such as underlining text. It should be noted that Trello does not have a built-in function for underlining in text fields. However, this post will provide a solution to this issue.

Markdown to the Rescue

Since Trello uses Markdown for text formatting, we need to use HTML tags to underline text. Please note that this will only work in card descriptions and comments, not in card titles or list titles.

Steps to Underline Text in Trello

  1. Open the Trello card where you want to add underlined text.
  2. In the card’s description or comment section, enclose the text you wish to underline with the HTML underline tag. The format should be:
    <u>Your Text</u>
  3. Save your changes. The text you have enclosed within the underline tags will now appear underlined.

A Note of Caution

While this method certainly works fine, there’s a minor limitation. The underlined text, due to the HTML rendering, might appear as a clickable hyperlink. Don’t worry – it won’t redirect you anywhere; it is just the way your browser handles the <u> tag.

In conclusion, even though Trello lacks native support for underlining text, the flexibility provided by Markdown enables us to use HTML tags as a workaround. This method can certainly help to highlight crucial information or tasks in your Trello cards. Happy Trello-ing!
