Rich text editor on Ticket Creation page

Clean install of rt-3.8.1

When you open the page to create a new ticket is it possible to turn on
the Rich Text Editor toolbar for the “Describe the issue below” textbox?
Or is this textbox somehow different to the Comment and Reply textboxes?


I noticed on the BestPractical Website Blog:

a screenshot for the “Create a New Ticket” page which shows the Rich
Text Editor enabled.

This leads me to assume I have a configuration, or possible Rights,
problem which is not displaying the Rich Text Editor on the “Create a
New Ticket” page for me as SuperUser. It is available for Comments and
Replies however.

Any suggestions to what I am doing wrong?
