"Textarea" displays style like "writer" field

Hi there!
I’m trying to make the “textarea” field styled like the writer field.

So when I set “bold/italic etc…” I’d like to see the style directly in the textarea instead of the markdown “** / *”.

Is it possible to achieve something like that?*

There is this plugin: GitHub - sylvainjule/kirby-markdown-field: Enhanced markdown editor for Kirby 3, community built.

It’s not fully what you want, I guess, but it comes close.

Thanks but I prefer not to use a plugin.

Are there any chances to use instead the writer field with some features like bullet point/list?

The writer field does indeed support bullet list, ordered list headings and horizontal rules, see field properties:

I’m sorry probably I don’t quite understand how it works.

In the blueprint field I set:

    label: Name Label
    type: writer
    nodes: true

But as you can see in the panel only the marks appear…

The marks are a different thing than the nodes.

But the only way I could make headings work was through entering them as markdown, same with lists.

Thanks @pixelijn!
It’s something that I cannot resolve… Some documentation or example would be very helpful.

It’s not properly implemented at the moment. There will be a solution in the next release.
