    Hi guys,

    Also +1 on to this; I've had multiple requests for this from our teams.  We run a multi-brand service and having more formatting options (colour, highlights) will make more impact in email responses, whether it's highlighting important content, formatting a bespoke promotion offer, or consistency with branded content.

    Even if the editor could at least handle rich text pasted from another source would make a difference, e.g. if I write an email in colour in another program and paste it over, it would be great for Zendesk to retain the original format.  Ideally we want to be able to make these edits in the email response but having the editor handle original formatting would be something.

    Thanks!

    One of our support agents came up with a pretty nifty work-around on this:

    Compose the update as you normally would (colors as you'd like) in MS Word.
    Take a cropped screenshot of the area of text after you finish writing.

    Paste the screenshot as an inline image.

    Well..yeah thats one way to do it. But jeeze, thats a pain for something that should be natively built in.

    I think its a sign of just how bad the text editor in Zendesk is that its come down to copy and pasting inline images from Microsoft Word.

    Yeah I gotta say that's not a great workaround.  The text is not searchable.  It won't necessarily look great on the email client if their email window isn't the right size.  It's unfortunate that we need to look into these types of workarounds for something as basic as this.

    Great suggestion to highlight the text.
    It will facilitate analysis by agent and customer.
