    Sorry for the confusion, but JotForm's Text Area tool can only generate a text-only field. We actually do not allow HTML/formatted text to be saved as a form submission, hence the lack of a WYSIWYG text editor tool.

    I did not realize you were referring to the Free Text (HTML) tool. Unfortunately, that cannot be used to create a WYSIWYG editor. The Free Text (HTML) tool can only be used (by the form owner) for inserting HTML content on a form, such as HTML links, tables, images, etc.

    I am afraid your only option is to have a Text Area field in your form to accept plain text information.

    Hi,

    We have released Rich "WYSIWYG" Editor for text-area field. You can enable it under Text area field's properties toolbar or Text Area field's Properties.

    Kindest Regards,

    Ertugrul.

    Great idea but still not working as it should.  I tried it on 2 browsers (cleared cache etc) and it doesn't display when WYSIWYG is enabled.

    I've posted a note here:
