    Default Rich Text Editor / HTML Editor in Form

    Hi All,
    I was wondering if the desktop-side Forms in Alpha support Rich Text Editing of a bound field / HTML editor around a bound field.
    We have a 'Comments' field on a table and would like to have users format their entry using numbering, italics, bolding etc.

    The RTF editor on the desktop form is listed as 'Insert a Static RTF object' and does not seem to allow being bound to a field
    (although I think there may be ways around this with hidden fields / writing custom save logic for the form etc). In addition, it's feature set does seem a little limited.

    Has anyone worked with this requirement before?
    Any insight is appreciated!

    Thank you for your time!

    Not sure about the bulleting but if you want rich text editing for a table field on a form the field must be an rtf memo field. That is the only type that supports storing the edits.
    There can be only one.

    Ah I see that now Stan, thanks!

    Seems it just supports some basic color / formatting / font options.
    Will have to continue to explore :)
