I like the new description box. It's a WYSIWYG instead of having to rely on code to get the formatting perfect, it's easy to fix it in the text editor. I had to go in and update a book's description and it took a few seconds compared to the few minutes of writing it with HTML in another tool to check the formatting then bringing it over to the KDP dash.

FYI - Here in the US something changed with the KDP description field.

When I turned OFF my VPN, the page changed and I received a description field WITH HTML OPTIONS!

Yep, buttons and source reference. 

Rudimentary? Yes. Better than silly little text box, you bet!

Cheers,

So I figured out a work around for now.

There's this button call 'source'. Click it, and you get the source code for the description. Put what you used to have in there, with the usual html code.

Then DON'T do anything except save the page and move on to the next one.

If you click the button again, it reverts to no formatting. So don't do that.

The problem is, as soon as you start over on that page, it will revert it again. So keep your formatted descriptions in a file, so you can copy and paste them back into the source section if you need to resubmit the book again.

Pain, but at least what comes out looks better.

There's a line from Monty Python that about covers this situation. Something about a bird...

And finally from KDP:

Quote
Checking the previous correspondences and this email, I understand you are concerned as the editor present in the description is adding extra line spaces whenever you type in the description into it.

I would like to confirm that we have detected the issue that you mentioned with the editor adding extra spacing and our technical teams are working hard to fix it as soon as possible.

I apologize for the inconvenience you faced.
