Enhance common description fields to offer MS Office editing and formatting capability

Many of out potential customers are used to entering transactions and having a fairly sophisticated text description capability that I cannot replicate with Acumatica.  I have seen this in several areas but the requirement is similar. 

They would like to capture a detailed description that looks and feels like a MS Word block in documents like PO, Project Quote, Sales Quote, Opportunity, Subcontract, etc..  The use case is that the operator will start a document and capture a large block of description that describes the work or in the case of a PO or Subcontract the work to be performed and then add a line for price.  The text block needs spell check and formatting capability including being able to use the enter key to move down lines in the text block not to the next field.  In some cases they might add terms and conditions to close out the document as other text blocks below the cost line or add the T&C’s as boiler plate in the printed form.

    This would be extremely helpful for populating the scope on the Subcontract.

    It would be very useful if the Report Designer replicated the formatting above.
