If you have a large album description, like in my Algarve album it is difficult to get a good survey of all text while you are editing, because with the current implementation there are only 4 short lines visible, see the attached screen shot.

It would be nice if an edit button could be added which opens a large new modal window where the album description can be edited.

And it would be nice if the spelling checker would be active in such a window.

The spell checker is active in that window.

And there's more space available at Settings > General > Album description.

I see indeed a red dotted line under a misspelt word, but I don't see a list of possible correct words. And if I check the same text in OpenOffice, you see that that these words are correctly. So the performance of the spelling checker is very low.
And there's more space available at Settings > General > Album description.
No the space is exactly the same, just 4 lines and you can get the same width in the Explorer bij shifting the divider to the left, see screen shot.

See screenshot. It's the same in every field.

The spell checker in jAlbum is not using the same dictionary as OpenOffice. Add the words to your personal dictionary

No, you can get a much wider field in the General settings. See screenshot.

For the so called misspeld Dutch word 'tijdsvolgorde' I see there no such a list, only an entry Add to the dictionarry (in Dutch).

There is no sinificant difference in width, but the height is more important and that is the same.

It would also be nice if the text could be displayed as you would see it in the final album, so with a preview button, it should show the text as it is processed by the browser.

Implemented in version 21 as the html editor, thanks!

Correction: this works only if the album description contains no html text, see here.

Try putting your own HTML tags around some text in the new HTML editor. In short, you can use the icons in the editor, but you can't provide any other HTML tags or styling.

And I know what it's doing. If it encounters any brackets in the text, like < or >, it turns them into HTML entities. So, they just end up being displayed in the album. The result will be something like the attached screenshot.

I am on holidays, so I have no time to test the html editor, but what you show here is a bug in the html editor, old tags should not be changed!

This wasn't even an "old tag" - this was me just trying to enter an HTML tag in the HTML editor. Who would think that an HTML editor wouldn't let you enter any HTML tags?

I agree this is very bad. We'll try to reach out to the makers of this component (https://quilljs.com/). You may actually do the same too

Do you know specifically what html tags that gets converted like that? I tried manually writing this comment, then entered the html editor:
Hiking with <a href="http://jalbum.net">Elsa</a>
. That didn't mangle my own html link.

Very tough to sort out. What I'm seeing with comments with existing HTML is that the editor is "paragraphing" everything, so maybe if that can be shut off, it would minimize the problems. Example - if the comment is this:
A comment with a <a href="http://example.com">link</a> in it.
A comment with some <span style="color: red;">styling</span> in it.
Invoking the editor yields this:
<p>A comment with a </p><p><a href="http://example.com">link</a></p><p> in it.A comment with some </p><p><span style="color: red;">styling</span></p><p> in it.</p>
But other times, it removes the line feeds and adds closing </li> tags, which are not required in HTML5. If the comment is this:
This is a list:
<ul>
<li>Thing 1
<li>Thing 2
<li> Thing 3
</ul>
Invoking the editor yields this:
This is a list:<ul><li>Thing 1</li><li>Thing 2</li><li> Thing 3</li></ul>
The "entity replacement" happens if you try to enter your own HTML tags while you're in the editor.

You know my favorite expression: "Don't do me any favors!" :)
