    Is it possible to have a rich text editor on a form for people to use when filling out the form?

    Asked by AVOCreative on April 07, 2016 at 03:06 PM


    I need a text box that people can type into with a lot of information. They need to be able to see all the text at once so a scrolling option would be ideal. Is it possible for them to have text editing options on there as well? I'm made a mock of what I need. Can to recommend anything? 

    Actually this box I'm typing in now to make this post is exactly what I mean. :)

    Based on what you have mentioned on Twitter https://twitter.com/AvoCreative/status/718157409231978496 I believe that this is the thread.

    Now looking at what you said, it seems that you are after the options available through TextArea.

    I have made a quick demo form with 3 Textarea fields for you to see. You can see it here: https://form.jotform.com/60976634788980

    As you will see, there is a rich text editor option as well.

    Now to get the same on your own form, you can simply add the Text Area to your form and then click on the "Editor Mode" option in the toolbar.

    Do let us know of course if that is not what you meant (your screenshot is not showing so I can not see what you have uploaded, but based on the description, this seems to be it :) )
