    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!

    Thanks

    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.

    Hum i'm understanding the situation

    But why you can make this on the forum ? if you can secure the forum, I'm sure you can do with form

    Thx for your quick response

    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!!!
