    We are using RadEditor version 2012.3.1016 and have the following issue in Internet Explorer 9.

    1. Enter an email address in the editor (eg. "info@example.com")
    2. Select the email address and open the LinkManager
    3. The Email tab is active and "info@example.com" is prefilled for both the address and the text
    4. Enter something in the subject field (eg. "test")
    5. Click OK
    6. Watch the HTML source. The subject is not added to the mailto-link

    Now try this:

    1. Enter a random word in the editor (eg "test")
    2. Select the word and open the LinkManager
    3. Click on the Email tab
    4. Enter "info@example.com" in the address field
    5. Enter "something" in the subject field
    6. Watch the HTML source. The subject is added to the mailto-link

    So adding a subject to a mailto-link works fine as long as the text of the link isn't an email address as well. The demo editor at http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx has the same problem.

    Hi Kristof,

    Thank you for contacting the Telerik support.

    We are aware of such issue and it has been already logged into our PITS system: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/aspnet-ajax/9847. We will try to correct it but unfortunately I am not able to provide a firm estimate for when it will be fixed.

    Please, excuse us for the temporary inconvenience.

    Regards,
    Vesi

    Can you confirm if this issue has been resolved?  If so, in which RadEditor version?

    Hi Joe,

    Yes, I can confirm that the issue was fixed in 2013. Unfortunately I can not tell you the exact controls version in which the fix is presented because the we make many improvements in RadEditor and one of them has made this bug not reproducible.

    You can test the behavior of the Editor with the latest release in our online demos: RadEditor Overview Demo

    Kind regards,
