If you have built a bot already on TARS’ Bot Builder, you will know that bots can communicate using images and text. A little known feature however was that text could be marked up using html markup to create richer text experiences.

To simplify this process we are announcing the implementation of a new rich text editor within the builder. To use this text editor, all you need to do is highlight the text in question to reveal the editor:

Once the editor pops up, you will have access to several basic text editing tools at your disposal. On the left side you can use the standard bold, italics, and underline. To the right of that you can click on the hashtag to add a hyperlink to the text.
