Convert Multi-paragrph Text field into Structured text

It would be very convenient if we could transform Multi-paragrph Text field into Structured text field inside DatoCMS directly. Would save some time when it comes to this.


Hi @primoz.rome,

Unfortunately, I don’t think the two are strictly compatible. “Multi-paragraph text” could hold Markdown or HTML in addition to plaintext, and there’s not a standard way to convert all HTML (or even Markdown) to structured text cleanly. Some basic formatting is easy (bold, italics, etc.) but things like alignment, tables, etc. would cause issues.

That said, if your Descriptions are relatively simple, you can use the CMA to loop through your records and migrate each one to Structured Text:
