Can you add facility for rich text editing in compose and signature.
For compose , it should have
1. Bold, italic, color, underline
2. Bulleting, numbering
3. Redo, undo

        The Boxer app is great except for how embarrassingly small the reply text is. To people receiving our emails, it makes us look stupid--like we don't know what we're doing. Until this gets fixed, I will find another way to reply to emails. How has this not been fixed yet? It's been more than 2 years...?

        Even if you can just change the current text to a larger font size so when reading these emails on your computer it doesn't look so different.

        It has been in gathering feedback since jan'15 . Is there any update if this feature is planned or evening worked on?

        Font size will help with emails and signatures
        Adding options to include logo images in signatures would also help

        without this feature, I find myself pulling out my laptop and checking there...

        Rich text formatting ability, it's about time Android allows emails to be sent with the ability to have some basic formatting options, plain text emails are just boring. bold, italics, underline, some color options, and some font changes should be standard in this day in age... when I send emails for work there is often times I need to bold, italics, change a color, etc... but cannot. which forces me pull out my laptop and reply, and leaving me to question why did I pay for boxer? I reply heavily on exchange emails, and boxer is one of the few apps that works really well with exchange. let's please add some rich text formatting.

        I would like to see rich text and html formatting abilities for boxer on Android. I use boxer with exchange server and I wish I could just bold certain words... it's 2016 this should have been built in already.

        Definitely require fonts for both email composing and signatures. Currently arrives into outlook client as Times New Roman and HTML so unsure why there is a lack of font choice.

        +3 I'm quite surprised about this too.
        The default font is actually pretty small and that's an issue for me, mainly because it defers a lot from what I'm sending to my clients with Outlook (Calibri 10 vs Verdana 10.5) but also because it's too small.

        The lack of formatting is actually more important than you may think because it's not even supported when drafting an email. Start Word, write some lines, put some formatting, copy, paste the text to Boxer and you end up with no formatting. IMOH, that's an issue, especially because it seems the emails we are sending from boxer are in HTML, not just Plain text.

        Thank you in advance for your consideration.

        Without this option I feel like I can only CHECK my email which is not enough, need to be able to send it, which requires proper formatting. please and thank you!
