    Is it possible to put a text box on a form the user can put text in and can choose bold, italic, undertline, text color, align, etc.?

    Same input box as in screen image.

    I need this very much!

    Hi,

    You can't format a prepopulated text on a textarea via URL parameter but prepopulating fields is really possible

    You can also use default values if you like. Example:

    I Think he want's an html text box like your forum

    to make some bold and align to the right change the font

    I think it's a good idea !

    @despin & Wtfuck

    Just within the last several hours, a ticket was submitted requesting such a feature but it's unlikely to be implemented due to the possibility of code injection. Nevertheless, your request is duly noted.

    That's a good question. Perhaps my colleagues can shed some light on this until a developer can provide an explanation.

    That would be great. I think a lot of people will use that feature to highlight soms text in their submission.

    I also requested a feature to have a submission limit and you have succesfull implemented that. Thanks

    @all

    Please keep an eye on the response from Jotform Support please. Everone can use this and as Wtfuck says on the forum this works, so the implementation is a few steps away!!!
