Concerning product edition, the description that is filled is intended to be used in the web portal. It is normally very long. So I think it is convenient to have 2 description fields. One “Long Description” to be displayed in web portal and one “Short Description” to be used in quotations.
Currently, the description appears in quotations, and since it is very large, I have always to replace the text for a short one.
I think you can consider this in the near future.
My current versions:
ERPNext: v11.1.19 (master)
Frappe Framework: v11.1.20 (master)
