Requesting a RichText widget...

Under Consideration

Could we have a RichTextEdit widget (maybe like what is the community forums). At minimum, something that allows bolding, italics, and text coloring.

Hey Jason,

Not quite sure what you mean here - are you looking to have an Input Field that has Bold/Italic buttons on top that allow you to transform the text through events?

So there is a "rich text" widget, but it only exists within the Sketch widget set. I could only fake out the presentation by using a Paragraph that includes a mixture of black and red text with some bolded text mixed in. The "looked" fine, but you can't do enable/disable it because it is not an input field. We need another textarea input widget with support for "rich text".

Does this example accomplish what you're looking for?

Unfortunately, no. It needs to be an input field and support bolding, italics, and text coloring.

Thanks for clarifying. While it's not possible to support text coloring, you can bold/italic/underline and align in that example. Hope that's somewhat helpful. In any case, I'll let our team know that adding a widget like this would be beneficial.
