It would be nice if Business Central would provide a build-in HTML Editor Control Add-In, which could be used for Editing Rich Text like a detailed Item Description for a Online Shop or when Sending an Invoice via E-Mail with E-Mail Body to edited the body before sending.

A few Open Source Editors to choose from that could be integrated:

Thank you for your feedback. We thought we would release this earlier, but have now reverted status back to "Under Review" as we assess our use of such rich-text controls. We are still considering adding it to our (longer term) roadmap.

Your help is greatly appreciated,

When sending emails, there is already some implementation of HTML editor on page Email Editor. That is what we need.

Please confirm that the output from this editor is tested on the reports.

On our actual scenarios:
We have used a BLOB field to manage the Rich Text but, when using it on a report, the paragraph is always padded 9,95 pts Top and Bottom.

We are using It on Registry Invoices, Sales Invoices and Quotes custom reports and the text line is always some points under other columns, although all columns are vertically align on Top.

Hopefully this would be considered under a general page redesign. Hopefully it is time to reconsider whether collapsed groups are optimal and whether a current side panels covers all the scenarios including rich html editing, pdf preview and editing.

@Joriek Rogge : Hi, Yes I would like an exemple. I'm trying to do the same for a customer who need to edit HTML before sending to the website.

Hi, I created a rich HTML editor based on the QuillJS library.
I also managed to create a light weight addin to display PDF files on a local folder in a factbox.
If you need an example, feel free to contact me.

I very much would like this native, too.

If you need a temporary ControlAddIn work-around, I used an Angular based HTML editor as my example control type in my blog about NAV:

+1 for a preview control which allows to show a preview of PDF documents as well!!!

This along with a blob file previewer that can handle inline preview side by side will be especially powerful if the team engineering team execute the October release of multitasking successfully. At the end of the day, almost all editing requires space and wouldn't be suited to a traditional page layout.

Just think of what can be done with Inbound Documents, Looking at Item data whilst editing descriptions.

+1 for Richard's request for a viewer as well as an editor

I agree on this one 100 %. For one client on BC, I've used https://www.tiny.cloud/ to manage e-mail writing.
