How to enable texteditor for a field?
You can use the WYSIWYG texteditor on any field you like. Enable the texteditor by going to your form configuration in TigerMin and choose ‘use WYSIWYG’ for a chosen field. By default this feature is enabled for the fields Description and Short Description. So make sure this is enabled for your fields by going to Configuration > Configure forms in TigerMin.

You will find a productoverview grid where you can find all your products, search through products, sort, etc. Now click on a value of a product to start editing. The field will now magically change into a simple textarea input field. You can drag & drop the size of this textarea.
