Product description is usually used to add information about a product, emphasize its advantages, list its characteristics or to show products features. The description can can also contain videos, images and animated elements that will help you show your product in a more favourable way.

To make the process of formatting product description simple, we have a text editor for the Description field. It allows you to add texts and format them like in the text editor that you use everyday. You can make paragraphs, add images, change colors, sizes and fonts of the text, etc.

We suggest that you use the following features of the text editor:

  • Use fullscreen mode
    If you need more space when working with a text, you can open the text editor in the Fullscreen mode. To do that, click the fullscreen icon in the right upper corner of the editor.
