Nice Big Text Window

Hi,
Certainly one of the most newbie-friendly features of V4, this handy feature made text formatting so much easier.
So where did it go? Having text formatting options in our windows again would be great!

I always wondered that. It was much easier to type in than the little box we get in v5.

I have always missed it and never could figure out why it was removed. Possibly just an oversight, but I guess at this point one that will never be corrected. I just type descriptions in another program now and copy them over, but that's not exactly ideal.

The inability to copy text off the screen while playing and beta testing is similarly frustrating and without a lot of sense to it.
