This is so cool… I always wanted these in the editor. WordPress could rather have a button next to the default buttons to show n hide this toolbar.

Yeah I wonder why its hidden away

Thanks a lot for this post! I was looking for a way to underline in WordPress but couldn’t find one.

One must wonder why WordPress doesn’t make these additional formatting features easily available. Why the big secret?
