Comment 2 Lluis Sanchez 2013-08-29 10:07:40 UTC
This is not a bug. The toolbox has several variations of the EditText widget: Plain Text, Multiline Text, etc. All those generate a widget of type EditText, but with different configurations. EditText has never been in the toolbox as a standalone widget.
