There is no way (other than custom user styles) to change text color. What exactly do you mean by task "description"? I just think of the title as being a description, but you seem to be looking for something else.
Thanks for you replies....maybe I am asking too much ..I am trying to use toodledo more for project management. Example: Task Name: Work on Security Policy....Description = MEMO Field ---details of work needed---Notes Field --notes on progress.
Text color would be great ---I am a former "TODOIST free account" which allows color text for priority. Then I can use color to seprate my description and notes on progress
Sorry for being a pain but it is what it is and I'll move on...
I am still not 100% clear on what you are looking for, but there are two things I will mention. One is that this is an area where subtasks might be beneficial. For instance "Work on..." is not really a task to me. If it is not something you can do, then it is more of a project, and subtasks could both break it down into steps and serve as a measure of progress. Second, the Tag field can be used for just about anything, and though this would be an unusual use, it would probably work since it is just another text field really.
