MULTI-LINE COMMENTS SECTION ON SHAREPOINT ERROR 404 NOT FOUND RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is an answer to a question I had and would like to share my findings!

    So in adapting to SharePoint (new styles) 

    So, if you were to do what I did (the wrong way) in my library I added a new column, called it comments and made it a Multi-Line text box, but when I saved it and I went to press the pen icon to type, I got an ERROR 404 NOT FOUND error message. After fiddling around for awhile there is a bug in the system in setting it up that way BUT there is a way around it. (AHA!!)

    Instead of choosing "Multi-line text" when adding the column, choose Single line text and then once it is created and saved, you can go in and edit the column to Multi-line text from single-line text. That seems to work around it

    Now everyone can lose a little less hair over this now! :)
