This plugin adds a rich text widget where the content is edited using the standard WordPress visual editor which most users already are familiar with.
It uses the WP core function wp_editor() without adding a custom post type post for each widget making the widget quicker and simpler to edit.

- More translations
This plugin makes it easier to edit widgets with rich text and I'm sure my users will love it.
After using the Black Studio TinyMCE Widget for years I started looking for a similar one that would not have the same conflicts with other plugins. I installed "WP edit widget" and it had no conflicts, worked out of the box and the widget content was not gone after deactiving the plugin ( something that frustrated me in Black Studio TinyMCE Widget.) I had almost immediate respons to my support question, so I will start using this exellent plugin and hope the developer will update it as soon as it would start behaving badly in time. Thanks! Annie
