Rich Text and Text fields mess with mobile formatting

    Anyone find a trick to getting around the following QB mobile bug?

    When using a formula rich text field, or the 'text' option in forms (oddly, a normal formula text field is fine) on mobile, when in view mode any field below the text field is a disaster. The border lines are removed, report links dont show correctly, things are shifted. It's all kinds of a mess.

    So far, only tricks I have discovered are putting in a section break, or simply using a formula text field.

    I was wondering if anyone else has discovered any other tricks?

    Are you properly closing your HTML tags?  Regular Quick Base is completely forgiving of badly formatted HTML, but perhaps Mobile requires proper closing of tags

    like 

    "<font color=red" & [my field here] & "</font color>"

    Most of us get lazy and don't bother closing the tag like I have done above and just do like this below.

    "<font color=red" & [my field here] 

    That works fine in regular Quick Base desktop but in mobile apparently not.

    GENIUS. Oh man I've been annoyed with that for so long, and closing the tag is all it took!

    Also, turns out I just needed to close my bold and italics </b></i>. I didnt even close my color or size and it worked just fine.
