Hi all. Today we have released an update to the way instructional text handles URLs. When a URL is inserted into instructions, they become links when viewed in the content editor.
So why have we implemented it in this way? It means we can get links working in instructional text quicker. Implementing the full formatting toolbar (apparent in guideline fields) is a lot more work. We're going to keep an eye on feedback to determine whether this solution will suffice, or whether full formatting options are required. Remember, if you do want to fully format instructional text, maybe a guideline field would be better suited!
For now I shall mark this as complete, and thank you for your input.
