    I would like to be able to have different toolbars for different rich text columns on the same list when I am editing.  For example, if I have a news item with the following columns, I'd like to be able to have the corresponding toolbars (at a high level):
    New Item Abstract -- Basic Toolbar
    News Item Body -- Enhanced Toolbar
    Related Documents -- Just the Document Manager button
    Related Links -- Just the Custom Links dropdown
    etc.

    I'm hoping that there is a way to do this without going into the aspx, as there will be many, many aspxs to deal with.

    Thanks,
    M.

    Hello Marc,

    Unfortunately, the current version allows you to use only use one tools file per web site. You can configure whether or not to display the enhanced toolbar by modifying the column type. When you select Multiple Lines of text, you can choose the mode - plain (simple textbox), rich (basic toolbar), or enhanced (enhanced toolbar). See the attached screenshot of a create column page for more information.

    You can configure both the basic and enhanced toolbars from the listtoolsfile.xml file:

    <root>
      <tools name="EnhancedToolbar" dockable="false" enabled="true">
    ...
    enhanced toolbar tools go here
    ...
      </tools>
      <tools name="BasicToolbar" dockable="false" enabled="true">
    ...
    basic tools go here
    ...
      </tools>
    ...
    </root>

    This should take care of the first two editors. However, I am not sure how you can achieve the other two (documents and links).

    Best wishes,

    So, for now, a user training issue.  This would be nice functionality to have (though I can't think of a very clean way to implement it).
