API to include rich formatting for component description

Currently, Figma’s API exposes component description as a string (https://www.figma.com/plugin-docs/api/properties/nodes-description/).

However, due to recent updates, the component description in the UI could be formatted with bold text, code, bullets, etc.

It would be very useful, to access this formatting via API. I think the simplest approach would be a markdown, but I’m aware that there are other options as well.

Fingers crossed for this idea to happen :slight_smile:

I’ve ran into this today. I understand that /n works for line breaks but I’m trying to figure out how the other styling options work. :face_with_monocle:

Having access to the rich text formatting in the Figma Plugin API would be beneficial for my plugin as well.
