Additional Information

This is known limit when creating MT using image upload workflow: the AGOL feature service that gets created sanitises HTML more restrictively than other workflows. It's the same reason you can't include the hr tag in the caption for an MT that is created using image upload. It works OK if you use other workflows.


Configure the application using the custom options > Start a new Tour, and the issue is not reproducible.
