Names appear when you hover over text.

A lot of time only two or three people will be on the pad when I'm collaborating in my group, and we sometimes have trouble telling who is who just by their color. I think it'd be super helpful to have a feature where, when turned on, you could...

The ability to embed images.

I think it would be great if we were able to incorporate images with the text.

Expand upon Authorship

First of all, have a list of all the authors who have written anything in the document. Perhaps put this along with document statistics, which bear word count, character count, number of lines, etc.? The ability to restore authorship colors is a...

A spell check

It needs a spell check. I often spell a lot of words wrong, and end up spell checking them on a word document or something.

I use IE10 with Windows 7, and my computer will load some pads but not others. For example: IF I were to go into a room called bananas, it won't load. If I try to go into apples, it will load and I will have no problems at all with it. but...

Losing connection to Etherpad lite synchronization servers

I am constantly disconnected from the synchronization servers. It is really inconvenient. My connection to the internet is perfect, so it would lead me to believe that it is your server. Can you improve the performance of the connectivity?

Please bring back the old layout, or at least make it an option

It was much more functional and better looking before. I would prefer if it was the default and the new look was an option you could set per-pad, but that seems unlikely. Also changing your text color is broken, at least in all of the browsers I...

Closing this as you can now have chat stuck to the side of the screen and the color picker is fixed.

Chat always visible

Congratulations for the work done in Etherpad! I just wanted to make a suggestion, I think there should be the option of being with chat messages always visible. As it is now, it becomes difficult to understand if there were new messages.
Response from the site administrator
johnyma22, 31.01.2012
This is now possible by clicking on the settings button "wheel" and selecting "Chat always on screen"

Make chat window bigger and easier to read.

Although it is great that there is a chat window, it is very inconvenient to have to squint just to read the chat.Can you please make the chat window larger or create an option as to the size of the chat window? Thank You.

Having trouble changing colors?

Some people can't change the color of their text. Even though the rest of us can. Is there anything they can try in order to help?

Constant Chat Glitches

Well, I would really like if you would improve the chatting on the pad. Mainly because whenever I'm collaborating with my friends and such, I try to type something in with the chat but it doesn't show up. Can you please fix this somehow?

Hosting & person deletion

I find it really annoying when someone comes onto your pad and you don't want them to. Maybe there could be a password but that would probably be a hassle so I was thinking maybe there could be a host (first person to get there, at the time) and...

Chat commands

What about adding chat commands? /kick {user} which kicks them out of the room, /ban {user} that bans a user from that room for 5 minutes? Such would help hosts manage trolling problems.

Toggle between fixed-width font and regular font

For those of us who like to use tools like this for looking at code or computer output with others, it would be nice to have an option to view the text in a fixed-width font.

Toggle to permanently disable authorship coloring.

Just need a simply check-box that stops coloring authorship. It also would be nice to be able to clear authorship without a confirmation.
