Possible to have colored text/tables... etc on a dashboard tile?



I would like to ask if it is possible to put colored text/tables/bullet points etc in a text box / a card tile? The preferred result is I could write up a passage of summary with colored text (at key points), sometimes complemented with tables and bullet points in a word file, and then put it up in a dashboard tile to view in a dashboard so I could view it quickly even on a mobile device. Or any similar workarounds would also do.


Many thanks.

Oddly enough, I do not see the option for changing the color of the font in a text box. You can change font, size, bold, italic, underline, alignment and insert a link, but no color or format painter available. What you could do is create your text in something like word, screen shot it, clip it and then insert it as an Image. Boo.

I was looking for a solution to change the text color in the text box as well. I don't seem to have found one, but the current workaround I do is I turn on the Title of the text box, and add the text there. The title can be formatted to change the color. Hope that helps.
