WYSIWYG editor for "description" field?

Any way to turn this field into a WYSIWYG editor instead of needing to enter HTML manually? I don't see support for it in the code... maybe you can add a filter so we can add our own "field" types?

    For now, there is no option to add WYSIWYG editor to the description text.

    If you're using slider just for image-based galleries, you may override default [gallery] shortcode http://help.dimsemenov.com/kb/wordpress-royalslider-tutorials/wp-cr... ACF plugin might be able to add WYSIWYG to WordPress image attachments fields.

    Thanks. Solved this by including a lightweight JavaScript WYSIWYG editor that can attach itself to <textareas> and did this:

        jQuery(document).ready(function() {
            resetCss: true,
            autogrowOnEnter: true,
            btns: [['strong', 'em',]]

    Works fine! And our editors don't need to leave the page now.
