Known Limitations
Avion's rich text editor supports many different formatting types and options, with powerful features from tables to code block syntax highlighting, and more!
However, unfortunately, not all of these formatting options are supported across the many platforms that Avion integrates with – these limitations typically arise as a result of all the different document formats and standards that these platforms use.
Listed below are known limitations of third-party services that we integrate with.
