    Hi,
    I'm building a quite complex custom content type and I would need a very minimalistic editor for the Textareas. The bare-bones textarea field is not enough, I would need to make text bold, italic and add links at least.

    What would be the be the best option for this?

    I tried the WYSIWYG field, looks a bit overkill, I would need to reduce its footprint somehow. Also text mode looks broken: https://imgur.com/a/KB42iNf The columns.css overwrites the button widths. Looks like this is a Meta Box induced problem.

    Please advise,
    Arpad

    Hi,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I've escalated this issue to the development team to fix this in the next update. For now, you can use the field WYSIWYG without columns to avoid this issue.

    Thank you for your reply Nguyen.
    Is there a way to customize the editor's feature set? I'd like to make it include only the most important editing features, and customize the default height.
    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You can use the parameter options of the WYSIWYG field to customize this field. Please get more details here https://docs.metabox.io/fields/wysiwyg/#settings

    Thanks a lot, I'll check that out.

    On another note, is it possible to have an image upload field that looks exactly like the Image Upload filed, (with the drag and drop feature, and nice layout), but have the option to select an image from the Media Library too?

    Hi,

    There is no image upload field like that. You can create your own image field by following this documentation https://docs.metabox.io/custom-field-type/

    Thank you. I might look into it, but I think this field type would really benefit your whole user base. How can I submit this as a feature request?

    Thank you.
    Looks like I can't add any feature suggestions from there, but in the first card it says you take feature suggestions through email and this support forum too...

    Would you mind creating a feature suggestion for an image field that takes image uploads by drag and drop and from the media library too (all in one), with the suggested looks of the standard image upload field.

    Thanks,
    Arpad
