As if the devs on Envato did not have enough to do. I’d like to see what you guys/girls think of the idea of adding a Rich Text Editor, y’know the kind that allows you to headline, bold, add images…stuff like that, to the Item Description area when uploading a theme.

Anyone else want this or feel their item descriptions would benefit because of a feature like this?

I prefer writing the HTML myself. When I write a description for a product, I don’t write them when I’m actually uploading the file. I take a good bit of time writing the copy in Word (so it’s grammatically correct) and then putting into a text editor and and massaging it around until I feel it looks right. So, by the time I get to the upload screen, it’s more of a copy and paste for me.

And as a general sidenote, I hate dealing with WYSIWYG ’s :-P

I agree with themeblvd, I much prefer writing HTML for my item descriptions. WYSIWYG ’s can be a pain and not render correctly as well.

HTML is a much better, and freeing way of writing the item descriptions in my opinion. :)

I’d say no to this, but I would love if we could preview our item before submitting so we can prevent having to have to resubmit for a small detail.

Changing your description doesn’t involve the item being sent to the reviewer. You just make the change, save, and the item updates right away.

I think this is a good idea.

Some people say no, some people say yes – then maybe a toggle option to make everyone happy? :)

Most of rich text editors have html source view :)
