I am logging this improvement here: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/108/Feedback/Details/136245. This needs to be implemented in the RadFileExplorer control first before it can affect the RadEditor. If this item gets enough public interest we will consider its implementation. For the time being you can cast your vote, leave a comment and follow its progress. I have also updated your Telerik points for your suggestion.
