When you set a property in ListConfigFile.xml it is applied on all scenarios (Lists, Wikis, Blogs, etc.)
. Since the RadEditor's dimensions are vary different in all those cases, the control uses the list's rows configuration to set its Height property. This is why it takes no affect when you set it in the ListConfigFile.xml file.
All the best,
