Google Wave and Rich Text

Posted in Technology on July 30th, 2009 by darcusb – 2 Comments

I finally got an account for the Google Wave sandbox account. Am still adjusting myself to the UI, and so don’t have a whole lot to say, except … it’s a rather large frustration to me to see Google reverting to the 1980s with its rich text widget. Yes, they have structured lists. That’s good. But, they have nothing approximating styles support. If you want to denote a section heading, you have to bold the damned text!

Come on Google, you can do better than this. Drop the damned font-family support and add at least basic support for headings (and farther out options for custom styles)!
